President Donald Trump expressed his frustrations with U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on social media Friday morning and said the state of Tennessee is “not happy.”
The tweet comes after Corker recently criticized the president and said Trump has "not been able to demonstrate the stability nor the competence" to be successful.
Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in '18. Tennessee not happy!

The remarks came after the president's seemingly shaky stance on the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Corker later reiterated that he hopes his words will help push change.
"The things that I say, I say hopefully to influence him and to influence the people around him," he said.
