from the bbc:
On Sunday morning, Donald Trump went off on a Twitter tirade against a member of his own party.

This time, however, his attacks were particularly biting and personal. He essentially called Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, the chair of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a coward for not running for re-election.
