My Approved PortraitsSenator Bob Corker of Tennessee is meeting today with The Donald at Trump Tower in New York.  There is speculation that the presumptive GOP nominee is considering Corker as his VP running mate.  Is this a good match?  Possibly, at least for Donald Trump, to give him cover for his more austere policies that he would impose on Americans.

Corker is anti Social Security and Medicare; he has wanted to privatize Medicare, handing out vouchers, and he has called Social Security “generational theft.”

It is well known that Trump made his fortune in real estate development.  Bob Corker, also, is a big real estate developer in Tennessee.  He shielded his involvement in developing wetlands and other properties while he was mayor of Chattanooga by forming a blind trust which, according to Wikipedia, “may not have been all that blind.”
