I can never recall a president publicly attacking a member of his cabinet. President Trump has been going after Attorney General Jeff Sessions for over a year.
Attorney general is unlike any other cabinet post. While there are some areas in which politics may play a part, it has no place at all in the administration of justice. Unfortunately for Sessions, Donald Trump doesn’t seem to care about justice. He clearly wants a political fixer that will give Republicans a pass and go after Democrats. Trump made this very clear in a recent tweet claiming Sessions is hurting the GOP’s chances in the midterm election.
A person would sure understand if Sessions decided to leave. A number of people, including some Republican senators, are urging him to stay.
One of the key points in Trump’s presidential campaign was Jeff Sessions’ endorsement. He was the first senator to do so. With friends like Trump he sure doesn’t need any enemies.
