Sen. John Cornyn upbraided President Donald Trump for creating "problems for himself" in his early months of administration with his "Twitter habit."
In an interview with WFAA for broadcast Sunday, the Texas Republican, who gave the president praise for his foreign policy achievements so far, also criticized Democrats for contributing to Trump's agenda problems.
“Unfortunately, the president has, I think, created problems for himself by his Twitter habit,” Cornyn said.
"And, unfortunately, because he hasn’t been able to assemble a team around him at the departments like the State Department, the Defense Department because of slow heel dragging by the Democrats,” he added.
The Senate majority whip gave Trump a B+ for his handling of foreign policy issues since taking office, however.
“He enforced the red line on Syrian chemical weapons," Cornyn said. "He enlisted China to help with North Korea — I think the pre-eminent threat to us right now.
"I think he has shown some mettle in dealing with Russia and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, particularly in dealing with Syria and around the world."
