Senators arrived at their weekly lunch Tuesday prepared to witness a heavyweight bout between President Trump and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) even brought popcorn.
But the meeting was largely free of turmoil, according to the senators who were in the room, though it included some memorable moments.
Corker’s name didn’t come up during the meeting, and the Tennessee senator didn’t use a question-and-answer session to confront Trump personally.
And unlike past presidents who have addressed Senate conferences, Trump actually sat down to eat with his fellow Republicans, digging into a meal of meatloaf followed by cherry pie.
