Corker says he's not ready to endorse Trump for re-election

A GOP Senator Just Said He's Not Sure Trump Is Going to Run in 2020

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., insisted it was "too early to weigh in on who I might support" in 2020. Nevertheless, if the party chose to move in a different direction than Trump come 2020, it's not as if it did anything to prevent a potential constitutional crisis. "And we've got some of both". Lindsey Graham, a political foe of Trump's in the 2016 cycle who has since warmed up to him, to pledge his support for the current POTUS. "I think that a continual tearing down of institutions in order to inspire your base and keep yourself protected with your base, to me, is damaging to our nation".

The Tennessee Republican said he would endorse a presidential candidate once he knew the line-up.

"Any Republican senator that hasn't been conflicted over this presidency is either comatose or is pretty useless in their blindness", Corker said during a breakfast with reporters on Wednesday.

'As to the 2020 presidential race, I believe President @RealDonaldTrump will run for reelection and I intend to support him, ' Graham tweeted on Thursday.


Despite Trump's formal re-election efforts, a growing list of Republicans on Capitol Hill are staying mum on their support of his bid. By contrast, Corker said, "My staff spends the whole week making sure I'm meeting with people that are not crackpots". But if they side too closely with Trump, they risk alienating the broader electorate, where his poll numbers have been historically low.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota interviewed Corker Thursday and asked if Trump's got his vote now that he has announced his 2020 bid. Arizona Sen Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic who is retiring at year's end, won't rule out a potential primary challenge against the President. "Certainly, now, this is Donald Trump's party". As former Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller put it to me: "The president is working with members of Congress to actively thwart his own Justice Department, because he wants it to stop investigating him".

Others wouldn't go that far, including Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, a Republican from the pivotal swing state of Florida, who said "it's premature" to say if he'll endorse Trump's re-election bid.
