Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) met with presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump at Trump Tower on Monday.

Corker told CNN they had “a good meeting about foreign policy and domestic issues.”

“We had never talked except on the phone,” Corker explained. “It was more of a get-to-know-each-other kind of meeting. It was really more of a policy meeting.”

Trump’s meeting with Corker comes the week following a foreign policy meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

Trump’s son, Eric Trump, recently responded to his father holding various meetings with experts.

“He’s going to the best and brightest people,” Trump said of his father during an appearance Monday morning on Fox News. “He’ll ultimately make his own decision and chart his own path.”

“Corker is on Trump’s list for vice president, according to a source close to the campaign,” CNN reports.

Corker responded to the rumor of VP, saying he’s “not angling for any job.”

“You know there have been conversations about us sitting down and talking and we did that,” Corker said during an interview with CNN. “But certainly I think the best way to not end up in a position like those is to angle for it. But I have no indication whatsoever that I would be considered.”
