President Trump launched a Twitter broadside on Sunday morning against a respected senior Republican senator, who fired back by saying that the White House had become an “adult day care center.”

The stunning exchange-by-tweet captured the disruption that Trump has brought to the Republican Party he now heads, and put his agenda further at risk in a Senate where Republicans have just a two-vote margin of control.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee last week had praised several of Trump's senior advisors for their sober-minded style and declared that they were helping to stave off “chaos,” making clear in follow-up comments that the chaos was the work of the president.

President Trump is assuring the public that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is prepared for Hurricane Nate, which is now expected to be a Category 2 hurricane at landfall on the central Gulf Coast in coming hours.

In a tweet on Saturday, Trump also cautioned residents of affected areas to heed the advice of local officials and to "be safe!"

As of 8 a.m. Saturday, Nate was accelerating to 26 mph and headed north-northwest on a course expected to take it onto the central Gulf Coast on Saturday night. Forecasters said the hurricane-force winds extended out up to 35 miles, mainly to the east of the eye.

With Republicans having failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, at least for now, President Trump on Saturday confirmed he'd once again opened the door to a deal with Democrats. They remain wary, at best.

“I called Chuck Schumer yesterday to see if the Dems want to do a great HealthCare Bill,” Trump tweeted on Saturday morning, speaking of the Senate Democratic leader and fellow New Yorker. “ObamaCare is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!”

The president's message, just before he headed for his Virginia golf club, reflected his continued frustration with his own party’s failures to keep its 7-year-old vow to repeal President Obama's signature domestic achievement. He has flirted with a deal with Democrats before, only to return to Republicans' position that the law has to be scrapped.
