President Trump: ‘I don't have an attorney general’

Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions

President Donald Trump escalated his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying, "I don't have an attorney general". He blamed Sessions for the lack of progress on border security too, declaring "I'm not happy at the border, I'm not happy with numerous things, not just this". "I can feel the difference".

The president suggested that he had a personal blind spot when it came to tapping the former Alabama senator as the nation's top law enforcement officer.

Chicago is not the only city to be impacted by a consent decree, the attorney general said.

In an interview with Hill TV, posted late Tuesday, the president said he is unhappy with the current state of affairs on the US border and "other things", without elaborating. Answers that should have been easily answered.

Trump has always been publicly critical of Sessions's decision to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and said that he has regretted nominating him to lead the Justice Department.

"And now it turned out he didn't have to recuse himself".

Sessions has implemented some of the most aggressive and controversial steps to try to crack down on illegal immigration - emphasizing "zero tolerance" for those who come to the country illegally, defending the policy of separating families, and issuing a ruling that limits those who qualify for asylum, among other things. Actually, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported shortly thereafter any reason for him to recuse himself.

Trump has repeatedly complained publicly and privately about Sessions, pushing him to curtail the Mueller probe, urging him to investigate Clinton and suggesting he should drop investigations into Republican congressmen until after the November midterm elections.

His exasperation with the AG also spilled over in one private conversation, Bob Woodward wrote in his new tell-all, "Fear", with Trump telling former staff secretary Rob Porter: "This guy is mentally retarded". In a July 2017 interview with The New York Times, Trump said he wouldn't have hired Sessions had he known the attorney general was going to recuse himself.

Trump just apparently doesn't want to be seen pulling the trigger.

"A lot of people have asked me to do that", he continued.

"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", he told the Hill, looping back to Sessions' recusal.

Trump told The Hill that "we'll see how it goes with Jeff". President Trump said on Tuesday that he's disappointed in the attorney general's job performance for a number of reasons, beyond his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation. "Very disappointed", he concluded.
