Bob Corker

The debt ceiling at some point has to be raised. I don’t think there’s anybody that questions the fact that if we ended up getting in a situation where the U.S. government was sending out IOUs like the state of California did at one point, that ends up creating quite a brand problem for our country.

When Donald Trump’s term is over, I think, the debasing of the American nation – the constant non-truth-telling, the name-calling – the debasement of our nation will be what he will be remembered most for. And that’s regretful, and it affects young people. We have young people who for the fist time are watching a President stating absolute non-truths, non-stop, personalizing things in the way that he does. And it’s very sad for our nation.

I do not see Russia as a friend of the United States in any form or fashion. Are there some things that we might be able to work together on? Sure. We certainly haven’t seen evidence of their desire to fight terrorism with us. I mean, we see them kill civilians, and you know, help Syrian President Bashar Assad concentrate more fully his power.
