Corker: Trump’s often provocative comments could provoke ‘World War III’

Listen to this article

WASHINGTON- Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said President Donald Trump’s often provocative comments toward other nations could provoke a third world war.

“He doesn’t realize that, you know, that we could be heading towards World War III with the kinds of comments that he’s making,” Corker told The New York Times in an interview that was published on Sunday.

Trump in August told reporters that if North Korea continues to make threats against the U.S. or its Asia-Pacific allies that the regime: “will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

Corker told the Times that his strong support for Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is in part based on their ability to counterbalance the president’s anger and steer him toward more thoughtful policy decisions.

Corker last week told reporters: “I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos.”

Corker, who last month announced that he will not seek re-election in 2018, recently became the target of a Trump tweet storm:

Corker a short time later fired back.
