After a broad bipartisan amendment to rein in President Donald Trump's ability to slap tariffs on trading partners appeared to be gaining steam, it quickly dissipated when it became clear top Republicans could not stomach legislation to which Trump will take offense. I would bet that.
"'Gosh, we might poke the bear!' is the language I've been hearing in the hallways", Corker said, his voice rising.
Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) insisted the GOP is not a cult of Trump on MSNBC today, where he went at it with Katy Tur defending President Trump's policies and knocking Bob Corker for his criticism of the President.
"I haven't heard a single senator on our side that hasn't expressed concern to the president directly about what's happening with tariffs", said Corker said from the Senate floor late Tuesday.
Corker conceded that his amendment won't get a vote. "The president might get upset with us as United States senators if we vote on the Corker amendment, so we're gonna do everything we can to block it'".
This has anxious some lawmakers who strongly back principles of free trade, warning that Trump could trigger a trade war that would destabilize the economy and ultimately hurt American workers.

Corker said Wednesday his comments don't apply to all Republican members, but he said "leadership in general" is not willing to poke the bear "because it's all about the next election".
"I can't believe it", continued Corker.
The senator added that "if people don't like it they can vote up or down". "And so let's don't do anything that might upset the President". Inhofe said the military bill is not the vehicle for Corker's proposal.
"I know that every ounce of power possible is going to be used to keep from voting on this amendment because, my gosh, the president might not like it and therefore we as senators might be offending someone by just voting on an amendment, up or down, and deciding whether we in fact want to assert some responsibility over a process of tariffing where we wake up - ready, fire, aim. that's the process that's underway on these tariffs". "The president might get upset with us as United States senators if we vote on the Corker amendment, '" Corker said during a heated speech where he was yelling from the Senate floor.
Senator Corker last week was told that his amendment may have a so-called "blue slip" issue should it reach the House of Representatives, a technical issue that requires revenue-related legislation to originate in the House.
