President Donald Trump was met with a protester throwing Russian flags at him as he arrived for a lunch with Republican senators Tuesday.

Despite tight security, the protester also shouted as Trump arrived on the second floor of the Senate, yelling "Trump is treason."

"Why are you talking about tax cuts when you should be talking about treason?" the protester shouted at Trump before being led away by Capitol police.

Trump walked into the Capitol with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at his side.

Trump's meeting with the GOP comes shortly after an escalating feud with Republican Sen. Bob Corker. The two men exchanged angry tweets and comments, with Corker saying Trump "debases our nation" with constant untruths.

Trump lashed back calling Corker "incompetent."

Corker, asked if he'll be at the GOP lunch since Trump will be there, said, "Of course, it's my lunch. He's coming to our lunch."
