Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Blasts Trump For Attacking Sen. Corker: ‘I Think It Demeans You’
Over the weekend, President Donald Trump took aim (again) at a member of his own party when he tossed off a series of rage-tweets about Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), claiming the retiring lawmaker begged him for an endorsement and decided to drop out when he didn’t get it. Corker responded with his own snarky tweet before giving an interview to the New York Times where he warned Trump’s behavior could lead to World Warr III.
With Trump continuing the back-and-forth today via Twitter while giving Corker a belittling nickname, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto devoted the final segment of his show this afternoon to imploring the president to please stop his Twitter attacks, letting POTUS know that he is risking his agenda. Noting that tax reform is now in the balance and Trump needs every vote he can get, Cavuto expressed concern with the president’s conduct.
“It’s not that some of your ideas aren’t sound — they are,” the Fox News host stated. “It’s that increasingly this erratic behavior is making me wonder whether you are.”
Cavuto went on to note that even if Trump believes Corker started all of this, tweeting out “tacky insults” is beneath the office of the president, telling Trump it may feel good to rip the establishment but it doesn’t help him in Washington.
“Not only does it demean the United States senator, I think it demeans you,” he declared. “I know some admire a president who speaks his mind but some of your tweets alone are making the people you need run for cover.”
The Fox News host added that if Trump doesn’t like when others toss insults at him what makes the president think that others would like it if it happens to them, asking POTUS to do this in private if he must go there.
“If you keep this up, you are losing this,” Cavuto concluded. “I am not just talking about tax cuts. I’m talking about just being a human being.”
