MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker offered to help Donald Trump develop a foreign policy platform.

This makes Corker one of the few senators to publicly accept Trump as the presumptive GOP nominee for the 2016 presidential election.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham recently announced he would not support Trump or Hillary Clinton for president.

Sen. Corker is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“I think he is well-aware now that he has to move into a period of really laying out our more substantial policies and certainly as he evolves, to the extent we can be helpful and flesh those out, we are more than glad to do so,” Corker said Thursday during an interview.

Not all top Republicans are embracing Trump as the presumptive nominee. House Speaker Paul Ryan has publicly said that he does not accept Trump as the nominee yet. This stems from concerns about Trump shifting positions on key issues, supporting the Democratic Party in the past, and his frequently offensive rhetoric.

Corker said since Republican voters clearly prefer Trump as the nominee, he is ready to assist him in the general election.
