Donald Trump has lost all faith in Jeff Sessions.
Many people believe it’s only a matter of time until the President fires Sessions.
And in one interview Trump gave Sessions the bad news he was dreading.
The Hill interviewed Trump in the Oval Office.
During the course of the interview, Trump was asked about his conflict with Sessions.
Trump responded with a shocking answer.
He said, “I have no Attorney General.”
The Hill reports:
President Trump in an Oval Office interview with Hill.TV launched one of his most ferocious broadsides to date against Jeff Sessions, suggesting the attorney general was essentially AWOL and performing badly on a variety of issues.
“I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad,” Trump told Hill.TV in an extensive and freewheeling interview Tuesday from the Oval Office.
The president has long excoriated Sessions for his March 2017 decision to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation. But on Tuesday he suggested he is frustrated by Sessions’s performance on far more than that.
“I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this,” he said.
Many Republicans believe Trump will fire Sessions after the midterm election.
Many Trump supporters wish he pulled the trigger earlier.
The Mueller investigation exists because Sessions could not stand up to media pressure and recused himself from the Russia probe.
That infuriated Trump.
He said if he knew Sessions would have recused himself he would have picked someone else.
From the sound of Trump’s interview, that day is fast approaching.
