President Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office on Thursday where he slammed Jeff Sessions for not doing his job. After President Trump was asked his thoughts on Jeff Sessions recusing himself, Trump replied,

“I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad,” Trump said,“I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this.”

Trump stated, “I’m so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me. He was the first senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be attorney general, and I didn’t see it.”

“And then he went through the nomination process and he did very poorly,” the president continued. “I mean, he was mixed up and confused, and people that worked with him for, you know, a long time in the Senate were nice to him, but he was giving very confusing answers. Answers that should have been easily answered. And that was a rough time for him.”

“[Sessions] gets in and probably because of the experience he had going through the nominating when somebody asked him the first question about Hillary Clinton or something he said, ‘I recuse myself, I recuse myself,’ ” Trump said.

“And now it turned out he didn’t have to recuse himself,” Trump added. “Actually, the FBI reported shortly thereafter any reason for him to recuse himself. And that’s very sad what happened.”

After being asked if he might fire his attorney general, Trump said, “We’ll see what happens. A lot of people have asked me to do that. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did. 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.”

Trump added, “We’ll see how it goes with Jeff. I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed.”
