"He worked with them on the legislation that rolled that out," Sanders responded. "That's what helped I think put things in motion. He may have voted against the deal ultimately, but he not only allowed the deal to happen, he gave it credibility. I stand by my statement."

Sanders appeared ready to criticize Corker throughout the press conference.

Some of Trump's allies, including former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, have called on him to resign.

"I think that's a decision for Sen. Corker and the people of Tennessee," Sanders said.

Since announcing his retirement, Corker has lashed out at Trump, saying in a New York Times interview that the White House is like "an adult day care center" and that Trump could lead the country into World War III.

Trump has responded, mocking Corker's height.
