President Trump continues pummeling Jeff Sessions, but this time he punches back

Trump Sessions

I did my duty & you're damn fortunate I did. "Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do", he said.

Sessions and Trump have repeatedly sparred since the former attorney general announced the bid for his former seat earlier this year.

The victor of the primary will face incumbent Sen.

Trump has targeted https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-sessions-idUSKBN1A51X7 Sessions for retribution since Sessions recused himself in 2017 from a us probe into Russian election meddling.

The President tweeted earlier Friday in support of Tuberville and said in part, "Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions".

Trump said that Sessions "let our country down" by deciding to recuse himself from the investigation.

'Jeff, you had your chance & you blew it, ' the president tweeted on Saturday.


Sessions was sacked just one day after the 2018 midterm elections, and he's now facing off against Tuberville in Alabama's Republican Senate primary. One includes a clip of Trump saying if he could have one presidential do-over it would be to not appoint Sessions as attorney general. However, shortly after the primary, Trump gave his support to Tuberville.

"Help me keep him from "helping" President Trump (and the Democrats) again here!"

Sessions recused himself on March 2, 2017, more than two weeks before then-FBI Director James Comey formally confirmed that the FBI was investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Back in March, Sessions brushed off Trump's decision to back his opponent. "That's why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville". Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville meets his supporters at Auburn Oaks Farm around 10 p.m. A campaign ad released last week showed "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd asking Trump, "If you had one do-over as president, what would it be?"

The latest rift between Trump and Sessions first began on May 8, when Trump - during an interview on Fox & Friends - claimed that Sessions "begged" him for the job.

In fact special counsel Robert Mueller, appointed by then deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein on 17 May 2017, said in his report that though he had not found evidence of criminal conspiracy between Moscow and the president, he was not exonerating Trump.
