WASHINGTON (WATE) – Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told reporters President Donald Trump’s administration needs to do something to bring itself under control and order.

“They are in a downward spiral right now and have got to figure out a way to come to grips with all that’s happening,” Corker told reporters. “You know the shame of it is there’s a really good national security team in place, there’s good productive things that are underway through them, and through others.
