WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Corker also said he hopes Trump engages in some self-reflection at a moment when "radical changes" are needed at the White House.
"The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful, and we need for him to be successful, our nation needs for him to be successful," Corker said.
"I think our president needs to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself… and move to a place where daily he's waking up thinking about what's best for our nation," the lawmaker stated.
Trump has not shown he understands what makes the United States great or the character of the nation, Corker added.
Trump hesitated to condemn the white supremacists in a statement on Saturday, and instead spoke about racism and bigotry on "many sides." On Monday, Trump clarified his statement, expressing clear condemnation of white supremacists and other hate groups. But Trump's remarks on Tuesday appeared to backtrack from his previous position by saying many of the "Unite the Right" group who were protesting were "not neo-Nazis" and "fine people."
