White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday said she hoped Sen. Bob Corker will "get out of the name-calling and get back to work here pretty soon."

Sanders made the comments as a guest on conservative host Hugh Hewitt's radio show from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building near the White House.

Hewitt asked Sanders if she communicates with Corker's press office to see "what's going on here."

Corker, R-Tenn., an early supporter of then candidate Donald Trump in 2016, has been engaged in a vitriolic back-and-forth with the president in recent weeks over a variety of issues, especially Trump's handling of North Korea and the Iran nuclear deal.

"You know, sadly, Sen. Corker hasn't called me, but if he'd like to visit, I'd be happy to talk to him and certainly see if we could get him back on board and do, frankly, what the people of Tennessee elected him to do," Sanders told Hewitt.

"That's come here, help do things that protect our country, protect our citizens, and do a lot of the things that they campaigned on, whether it's repeal and replace or tax reform. Hopefully, he'll get out of the name-calling and get back to work here pretty soon," Sanders told Hewitt.

Corker has announced he will not seek re-election in 2018.
