President Donald Trump on Tuesday told the Hill.TV he continues to lose respect for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying he isn’t “happy at the border,” with “numerous things.”
“I don’t have an Attorney General. It’s very said,” Trump said.
The president has long questioned Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation now being run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and has referred to the probe as a “witch hunt” and mocked “the Jeff Sessions ‘Justice’ Department" on Twitter.
Trump also recently criticized the DOJ for indicting two GOP lawmakers so close to the midterm elections, but demurred when asked whether he would fire Sessions.
“We’ll see what happens. A lot of people have asked me to do that. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did,” he said, referring to the recusal decision.
“And my worst enemies, I mean, people that, you know, are on the other side of me, in a lot of ways including politically, have said that was a very unfair thing he did.”
"We’ll see how it goes with Jeff,” he added. “I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed."
