It is unlikely Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., will get much open support on Capitol Hill in his feud with President Donald Trump, but there is one thing he can count on: another punch from the president, CNN reported.

"He's not finished with Corker," an unnamed administration official told CNN about Trump.

According to CNN, Trump has told advisers he believes many Republicans will be less willing to speak out against him after the weekend Twitter feud with Corker — especially those running for reelection in 2018 who do not want to risk the wrath of Trump voters in their states.

"The President is more popular than anyone in Congress," an unnamed White House official told CNN.

Two officials told CNN the Corker-Trump fight "is obviously not helpful," but the White House does not believe it is the beginning of a groundswell.

"It's something we are watching, but we've not been given the sense there are a large number of people following Corker," one official said. "It's obviously not helpful that it's out in the open, but it's also Corker being Corker."
