After Announcing Impending Retirement Bob Corker Unleashes Heavy Criticism on Trump.

A top Senate Republican says key members of the Trump administration are the only thing standing in the way of complete “chaos” in the United States.

“I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos,” said Republican Senator Bob Corker, Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, late Wednesday.

Corker’s comments followed a hastily organized press conference earlier in the day where Secretary of State Rex Tillerson pushed back against an NBC News report he called President Donald Trump a "moron" and threatened to leave the administration over the summer.

The following day Trump tweeted that Tillerson “is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” a nickname the president has given to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Talking about Tillerson's position, Corker told reporters that the diplomat “is in a very frustrating place” where “he ends up not being supported in a way I hope a secretary of state would be supported.”

Reporters asked Corker whether the chaos he said key Trump administration officials are protecting America from comes directly from the president.

“They work very well together to make sure that the policies that we put forth around the world are sound and coherent,” Corker responded. “There are other people within the administration, in my belief, that don’t.”
