Trump White House an ‘adult day care cen­tre’

Daily Mail - - News - From Tom Leonard in New York

A SE­NIOR Repub­li­can said he feared Don­ald Trump had set the US ‘on the path to World War III’ and had turned the White House into an ‘adult day care cen­tre’.

Sen­a­tor Bob Corker, chair­man of the Se­nate for­eign re­la­tions com­mit­tee, said the Pres­i­dent treated his of­fice like a re­al­ity show.

He added: ‘I know for a fact that ev­ery day at the White House, it’s a sit­u­a­tion of try­ing to con­tain him.’

His dev­as­tat­ing re­marks came just days af­ter US sec­re­tary of state Rex Tiller­son re­fused to deny that he had called Mr Trump a ‘mo­ron’.

The out­burst by Ten­nessee sen­a­tor Mr Corker came af­ter Mr Trump at­tacked him, say­ing he ‘didn’t have the guts’ to run for re-elec­tion.

Mr Corker hit back, say­ing: ‘It’s a shame the White House has be­come an adult day care cen­tre. Some­one ob­vi­ously missed their shift this morn­ing.’

He said his con­cerns about Mr Trump were shared by vir­tu­ally ev­ery Repub­li­can in the Se­nate. And Wash­ing­ton in­sid­ers in­sisted his views were com­mon among some of the Pres­i­dent’s clos­est aides.

Although he did not elab­o­rate on his ‘World War III’ claim, he ap­peared to be re­fer­ring to North Korea, where Mr Trump has threat­ened to ‘un­leash fire and fury’. ÷ Rus­sia used Google to med­dle in the US elec­tion by buy­ing ad­verts on the search en­gine and on YouTube, which it owns, the tech gi­ant has found. Face­book has al­ready shown con­gres­sional in­ves­ti­ga­tors around 3,000 ad­verts bought by Rus­sia.
