Attorney General Jeff Sessions is now speaking out about the criticisms he has received in the past week from President Trump.
Sessions is in El Salvador as the administration focuses efforts on cracking down on the violent MS-13 gang. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson accompanied Sessions there and conducted an interview airing in full tonight.
He asked Sessions about the President taking several shots at him, criticizing him for his recusal, and saying he would have picked another AG if he’d known about the recusal ahead of time.
Sessions said, “It’s kind of hurtful, but the President of the United States is a strong leader.”
He added that he still intends to do his job.
