Republican Senator Bob Corker just issued perhaps the most damning assessment of Trump’s character to have come from a GOP official.
Speaking after a Rotary meeting Thursday afternoon, the conservative Tennessee lawmaker called Trump’s very fitness for the presidency into question:
The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order for him to be successful…[he] also recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.
[Trump’s] got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that. Without those things happening, our nation is going to go through great peril.
The fact that a respected conservative in the senate is questioning Trump’s “stability” should alarm the White House. As Trump continues to botch the most basic duties required of the commander-in-chief, his approval ratings will continue to plummet while the favorability of impeachment continues to rise.
