President Trump has insulted Jeff Sessions a number of times over the last few days. “Sessions should have never recused himself. And if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” said President Trump to the New York Times.
Trump has also tweeted “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” and “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”
Jeff Sessions has finally responded to these attacks. “It’s kind of hurtful, but the president of the United States is a strong leader, he’s determined to move this country in the direction he believes it needs to go to make us great again,” said Sessions in response.
“He’s had a lot of criticisms and he’s steadfastly determined to get his job done and he wants all of us to do our job and that’s what I intend to do,” said Sessions. So far he is not quitting and he defended his decision to recuse himself.
“I’ve talked with experts in the Department of Justice, people who are trained in that, I’m confident I’ve made the right decision, a decision that’s consistent for the rule of law. An attorney general who doesn’t follow the law isn’t very effective with leading the Department of Justice,” said Sessions. Check out the video below.
