Bob Corker 10-26-17

Despite his ongoing feud with the president, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Thursday that he supported the tax reform package pushed by the White House.

“I'm all in,” Corker said. “This is going to be the — if we do it right — it's going to be the biggest tax write ... since 1986.”

Amid President Donald Trump's attacks on Corker and other congressional Republicans, journalists wondered whether Trump was alienating key allies at a time when he needed them to accomplish his legislative agenda.

On Tuesday, tension erupted between Trump and Corker, who responded to the president's derogatory tweets by calling him “untruthful” and suggesting he was immature:

Corker was defending a push for tax reform after Scarborough asked how Republicans could pass tax reform without exploding the debt. In response, Corker suggested that Congress would save $4 trillion by closing tax loopholes for individuals and businesses.

“I'm excited about this,” the Tennessee senator said.
