House Speaker Paul Ryan is telling the media and the public to "forget about" President Donald Trump's latest Twitter fight and focus instead on cutting taxes.

Ryan is trying to keep attention concentrated on the party's efforts to rewrite the tax code in a bid to boost incomes and U.S. competitiveness.

Asked about Trump's Tuesday broadsides against Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker, Ryan said "put this Twitter dispute aside."

Instead, Ryan said "Let's focus on helping people, improving people's lives, and doing what we said we would do."

Trump is traveling to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to lunch with Republican senators, including Corker, who Trump said "couldn't get elected dog catcher."

Corker responded by accusing Trump of "debasing" the U.S. and said he engages in "constant non-truth-telling."
