Sen. Bob Corker said Thursday that the White House needs to stick with a consistent message when it comes to foreign policy.

“I really do think words matter,” Mr. Corker, Tennessee Republican, said on MSNBC.

“We’re moving along, pushing China for instance and all of a sudden the subject changes to South Korea paying for its THAAD missiles there,” he said. “There needs to be an organizing structure. I’m sorry. I think we’ve got tremendous talent over there. People that I really have a great relationship with, but thus far it’s not hitting on all eight.”

Mr. Corker also said the Senate will take on health care when it passes into their chamber, but it’s not a priority right now.

“There’s a working group over here of Republicans with a range of ideology to see where we go with the bill when it comes across,” he said. “Nothing has been laid out over here. All of us are pretty much focused on other things until we get the bill.”

House Republicans are expected to vote on their version of the health care bill Thursday.
