In a new interview with Hill.tv, Donald Trump eviscerates his own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, on a multitude of issues.
“I don’t have an Attorney General,” said Trump. “It’s very sad.”
The Trumpster has been angry with Sessions from practically day one of his time in the administration.
Sessions’ original sin was recusing himself from the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which infuriated Trump.
“I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this,” said the president, referring to the recusal.
“I’m so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me,” laments Trump. “He was the first Senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be Attorney General, and I didn’t see it.”
“And then he went through the nominating process and he did very poorly. I mean, he was mixed up and confused, and people that worked with him for, you know, a long time in the Senate were not nice to him, but he was giving very confusing answers. Answers that should have been easily answered. And that was a rough time for him.”
Asked if he is considering firing Sessions, Trump said, “We’ll see how it goes with Jeff. I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed.”
