Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) lauded Donald Trump’s foreign policy chops after meeting with the president-elect at Trump Tower on Tuesday.
“It’s been an honor to have the kind of meeting that I had today,” said Corker, who is reportedly under consideration to be Trump’s secretary of State.
“We had a very wide-ranging meeting, actually a couple meetings, and his instincts on foreign policy are obviously very, very good.”
Corker confirmed that he’s “in the running for a Cabinet position,” adding that while the decision is narrowed down to a “very small group,” he’s unsure of the timeline.
“The secretary of State’s role is so important to a president. He needs to choose someone that he’s very comfortable with and he knows that there’s going to be no daylight between him and them. He needs to know that the secretary of State is someone who speaks fully for the president.”
