When Donald Trump ran for president, he was already showing a strong character. He was happy to argue and took up a lot of space during the debates. It must be said that this behavior did not disappear with his presidential victory. In fact, the President of the United States is not giving up his place. Here are 10 people with whom he doesn’t get along at all…
1. Jeff Flake
The reason Flake and Corker dropped out of the Senate race is very simple, they had zero chance of being elected. Now act so hurt & wounded!

When this Republican senator from Arizona decided he would not run for re-election in 2018, he came out with great success. In October, Flake, who had openly criticized Trump before, spoke in the Senate to deliver a scathing speech against Trump and the Republican Party leadership. He said that he spoke with, “Regret, because of the state of our disunity, regret because of the degradation and destructive nature of our politics, regret because of the indecency of our speech, regret because of the grossness of our leadership, regret for the compromise of our moral authority, and by our – all our – complicity in this alarming and dangerous state of things.”
2. Bob Corker
…the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle' Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
The Republican Senator from Tennessee Corker upset Trump so much that the president reused his favorite campaign nickname for Marco Rubio: “Liddle.” Corker, who is not running for re-election, supported Trump in 2016 but has been more candid in his assessment of the president since the announcement of his retirement. He suggested that the Secretary of State and others have protected the country from “chaos.” When the president retaliated by Twitter, suggesting that Corker had “begged” him for his support, the senator called the White House an “adult day center”.
The most recent outbreak of violence began with an argument about tax reform, and included a Trump Tweet about Corker “not being elected as a dog catcher in Tennessee”. And then, of course, there was the nickname: “People like Bob Corker, the president tweeted in October, pushed the United States back.”
3. Jeff Sessions
Former Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama was one of Trump’s first and strongest supporters during the campaign, but since Trump took office and Sessions became Attorney General, their relationship has become more complex. In July, Mr. Trump stated that he would not have presented Sessions as Attorney General if he had known that he would recuse himself for Russian affairs. A few days later, Trump said he was “very disappointed” with the Sessions and mentioned the possibility of firing him. The sessions remain at the head of the DOJ, but Mr. Trump periodically expresses his frustration with the organization, letting the public know that he is not satisfied with his former ally.
4. Frederica Wilson
I hope the Fake News Media keeps talking about Wacky Congresswoman Wilson in that she, as a representative, is killing the Democrat Party!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2017
The dispute between Trump and Democratic Representative Wilson quickly escalated after Wilson heard his call for condolences to a war widow. Mr. Wilson criticized Mr. Trump’s remarks to the widow, and the Chief of the White House Staff, John Kelly, responded by misinterpreting Ms. Wilson’s past remarks and calling her an “empty barrel”. Trump then jumped in, calling her “crazy” and accusing her of “killing the Democratic Party”.
Wilson retaliated more strongly by telling the New York Times that “the White House itself is full of white supremacists”.
5. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski
I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
Mr. Trump once had a friendly relationship with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” hosts, but this relationship deteriorated considerably after his assumption of the presidency. During the most shocking attacks in June, Trump nicknamed them “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and “Psycho Joe”, and tweeted that Brzezinski had once come to his estate in Florida “bleeding to death because of a facelift”. Brzezinski responded on Twitter with a reference to Trump’s ongoing joke about the size of his hands, and MSNBC issued a statement in which he described the day as “sad for America when the president spends his time tyrannizing”.
6. Colin Kaepernick
When former San Francisco 49ers footballer Colin Kaepernick decided to kneel down during the national anthem in 2016, he was unaware that he would soon wage war on the President of the United States. Trump clung to Kaepernick’s peaceful protest – and the many others who swept the NFL later in the next season – saying in September 2017, “Wouldn’t you like to see one of those NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now”?”Trump struggle with the NFL has become a corner issue, TIME reported in October, pitting the president’s white and conservative base against rich black athletes and liberal elites.
7. James Comey
Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over…and so much more. A rigged system!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 1, 2017
There were probably few decisions in Trump’s young presidency as significant as the dismissal of James Comey as director of the FBI. Mr. Trump fired Mr. Comey in May, apparently because of his management of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, but critics were also concerned because he was overseeing the investigation into Mr. Trump’s relations with Russia as part of his campaign. In explosive testimony to Congress the following month, Mr. Comey said at the beginning of his presidency that Mr. Trump had said he expected Mr. Comey and the FBI to show “loyalty”. It was only a week after Comey’s dismissal that Robert Mueller was appointed a special counsel for the Russian investigation.
8. Hillary Clinton
Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 3, 2017
Hillary Clinton was Trump’s favorite target during their bitter presidential race, and she continues to be so even now that Trump has become commander-in-chief. Their mutual animosity has manifested itself in all sorts of ways over the past year, with Clinton calling him a “bad guy” and Trump continuing to ask the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate his finances and emails.
9. Carmen Yulin Cruz
Following a devastating hurricane in Puerto Rico, Trump had a fight with the mayor of San Juan. At a press conference in September, Cruz asked the federal government to help Puerto Rico and said: “You are killing us with your inefficiency. In a series of tweets the next day, Trump said that Cruz has “poor leadership skills” and that she and the others “want everything done for them”.
10. John McCain
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
John McCain, who died in 2018, and Trump really didn’t get along. Trump and the Republican Senator from Arizona began to have a tortured relationship with the presidential campaign during which Trump mocked McCain’s capture during the Vietnam War. McCain then withdrew his support for Trump after the escape of the Access Hollywood gang.
Now that Trump is president, the two fought over the repeal of the affordable care law and Trump’s political approach, McCain denouncing “a half-baked and fallacious nationalism invented by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”
