"Bob Corker seems to be when he's faced some criticisms", Carr told the paper.
"He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today", Corker said in the aftermath of Trump claiming "many sides" were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville.
During the 2016 presidential election, Corker worked as a foreign policy adviser to Trump, and is now the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back against Corker's comments on Thursday, calling them "ridiculous and outrageous" at a press briefing.
Trump says on Twitter: "Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in '18".
In his tweet, Trump is not-so-subtle in saying that Corker risks a primary challenge in Tennessee.

Following Trump's wavering and widely denounced responses to the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Corker criticized the president's leadership.
Add Sen. Bob Corker to the list of Republicans dissed this week by President Donald Trump. The bill cleared Congress overwhelmingly last month and Trump grudgingly signed it on August 2. Corker was also on the shortlist to be picked as Trump's presidential running mate as well as his secretary of state. At a Tuesday night rally in Phoenix, Trump went after - though not by name - Arizona's US senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans. That campaign was tinged by its own racial undercurrent, especially when an ad produced by the Republican National Committee hit the airwaves attacking his African-American opponent, former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. of Memphis.
The president also has attacked Sen. "I don't know that there's probably anybody in the United States Senate that talks to him more about issues that matter, not only to our nation but to the world".
Corker's praise of the US sanctions comes as amid a verbal battle between him and Trump. Trump reluctantly signed it, under threat that Congress would override a veto. "But there are things that I think any rational person would say I wish he hadn't said this or done that".
Green announced in early August that he did not intend to run against Corker in 2018 based on how "everything sits right now".
