Bob Corker has taken himself out of consideration to be Donald Trump’s running mate, NBC News confirmed Wednesday.

The senator from Tennessee’s withdrawal from the running was first reported by The Washington Post. Corker hit the campaign trail with Trump on Tuesday and was seen as lending the businessman foreign policy chops.

Corker, 63, serves as chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee and was first elected to the Senate in 2006. He told Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, about his decision Tuesday, the Post reported.

“There are people far more suited for being a candidate for vice president and I think I’m far more suited for other types of things,” Corker told the newspaper.

    Trump, are you ever going to grow up and ACT like a CEO and not a child?

    Stop the damn name calling and realize we want a President not s snot nosed college kid that refuses to grow up

  • Worried Vet says:

    I hope Trump picks someone who benefits the ticket and able to get votes in a key states. I think Newt Gingrich is good for that. He knows foreign policies, is great with math and has speaking skills.

  • W. Coyote says:

    This is a pretty clear demonstration of how smart Corker is. Further, he is a thoughtful, decent guy who doesn’t resort to name calling or other ad hominem attacks. So, it would be a real personality clash with Trump.
    In addition, “We love the poorly educated” (Donald Trump, 02/23/16)- is something that Corker would never say.

    He will be your next Secretary of State. Who the hell wants to be Vice president anyway.

  • JIMBO says:

    Corker was not a good choice at all. He cant be trusted. Trump should thank his lucky star that this RINO dropped out.

  • Cleverfun says:

    Isn’t he the one that changed the rules in the Senate so that Obama could push through TPP??

      Well then good if he is the one that did that. We don’t need a rino as a VP. I hope Christie takes himself out too. I like Joni Ernst though.

        I consider her RINO also but I like Newt!

  • jnora says:

    Thank goodness…we want to get rid of him even here in TN. He is a RiNO.
