Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is the latest Republican to opt for retirement in 2018 rather than be linked to the Trump dumpster fire of a presidency as he continues to divide the country with racist rhetoric and overall incompetence.
Corker said in a statement: “After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018.”
Serving the people of Tennessee in this capacity has been the greatest privilege of my life. My statement: pic.twitter.com/IqNVlhD7Vv

Corker’s announcement comes after Donald Trump called black NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem as sons of bitches. He questioned Trump’s mental stability and competence an during an interview last month.
