It took four days for outgoing Republican Sen. Bob Corker to decide whether he would vote for President Donald Trump again, and his final answer was he wouldn't decide, The Washington Post reports.

The question posed to Corker, R-Tenn., by the Post was a simple one: "If the election were held today, would you vote for Donald Trump?"

Corker's string of answers was anything but.

The senator, who's retiring at the end of this term, first said, "I would" but then quickly pivoted to "probably," the Post reports.

And the answers from there can only be described as meandering. Corker's subsequent answers, according to the Post:

  • "I want to think about that answer, it's a pretty defining thing."
  • "I think it's an unfair question for a reporter to ask. That might be my answer."
  • "I'm still thinking about that answer."
  • "It's actually a serious question. I wish I had said I don't respond to conjecture, but now you've got me stuck."

Four days later, Corker called the Post with his final answer.

"I just don't have any desire to make news," Corker said. "So I'll leave it at that."

Corker has had an on again-off again relationship with Trump, becoming one of the first mainstream GOP lawmakers to endorse Trump. He later was an early candidate for secretary of state, among other cabinet posts.

But Corker has publicly critical of the president more than once this past year, and that put the diminutive senator in the crosshairs of Trump more than once.

"Despite everything, we do have a very, very warm relationship," Corker told the Post.
