Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called for Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., to resign immediately, following Corker's comments to the New York Times that President Trump could be bringing the U.S. to "the path to World War III."
"If Bob Corker had any honor or decency, he should resign immediately," Bannon said to Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night.
Bannon also criticized GOP lawmakers, including Corker and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
"These people have no respect for the working men and women. Senator Corker is an absolute disgrace," Bannon said.
Hannity also slammed Corker and the Senate for their inaction at the beginning of the interview.
"He's so arrogant. Such an elitist snob," Hannity said. "He's the swamp. The Senate hasn't done a thing, Steve. Nothing."
Corker told the New York Times in a recent interview he has "concerns" about President Trump."He concerns me," Corker told the New York Times. "He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation."
Meanwhile, Bannon has been meeting with Republican donors, following the Alabama special election where Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange, who was backed by McConnell and President Trump, in a GOP primary runoff election.Bannon said he plans to implement a similar strategy to future GOP primaries in 2018 to undermine the efforts of the GOP establishment of leaders such as McConnell and promote Trump's populist agenda.
Corker is not seeking reelection in 2018.
