Internet pranksters — and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich — have been inundating Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker with calls after he criticized President Trump's response to the violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

But Corker isn't expressing any regrets.

A day after Corker complained that Trump isn't showing the "competence" or "stability" needed to be president, the Tennessee Republican spoke again to reporters following a breakfast engagement at the Omni Nashville Hotel. Corker said he isn't sorry he supported Trump in the general election or for his past praise of the president, but he does want Trump to become a unifier, rather than a divisive figure.

The Hermitage will have to close on what was expected to be a day of celebration for Andrew Jackson's 250th birthday. But the museum's CEO says they don't mind shutting down for the expected visit by President Trump on Wednesday, which will be the first by a sitting president in 35 years.
