President Donald Trump is considering former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Axios reported on Monday.

Trump is "so unhappy" with Sessions that he has raised that possibility in "internal conversations," the political news website said, citing White House confidants.

Giuliani, known as New York City's tough-talking, law-and-order mayor, was one of Trump's most vocal supporters during the 2016 presidential campaign.

And, as Axios noted, Giuliani would have "a tough time getting 50 Republicans senators to vote to confirm him, because of that support.

"He was such an early and ardent Trump backer that he wouldn't be seen as an independent guardian of the department in these tumultuous times," Axios' Mike Allen said.

Trump slammed Sessions last week in an explosive New York Times interview, telling the newspaper he never would have appointed him had he known Sessions would recuse himself in the Russia investigation.

Trump took another swipe at Sessions on Monday, calling him in a tweet "our beleaguered A.G."
