U.S. Sen. Corker Spoke Directly With President Trump To Prevent Restrictions On Food Aid Programs

Devex: Bob Corker: Food aid reform threatened by ‘nativist’ White House interests
“Senator Bob Corker, a top Republican lawmaker, told an audience in Washington, D.C., that it was a direct phone call he made to President Donald Trump that stopped the White House from issuing an executive order in June that would have placed additional restrictions on United States food aid programs. But he warned there is a good chance political supporters will try to enact further restrictions again…” (Edwards, 10/20).
