“He concerns me,” Corker told the Times. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”

Corker’s comments come after Trump attacked the senator in a series of tweets on Sunday.

“Senator Bob Corker 'begged' me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said 'NO' and he dropped out (said he could not win without.....my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said 'NO THANKS.' He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!” Trump tweeted.

“…Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn't have the guts to run!” Trump added.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning,” Corker fired back in a tweet earlier Sunday.

Corker disputed Trump’s account to the Times, saying that Trump had asked him to run and promised to endorse him if he did.
