Tensions between President Trump and the Attorney General have existed almost since the inception of the latter’s appointment. Sessions made headlines in 2017 when he promptly recused himself from matters regarding the infamous Russia investigation. While the Attorney General cited a conflict of interest, the President and his supporters didn’t quite see things this way.
The Commander-in-Chief has criticized Sessions on multiple occasions. Roughly one year ago, Americans began to speculate about whether or not alleged “tension” between the two men would engender the firing of the Attorney General. Then, in July 2017, rumors began to spread that President Trump seriously regretted hiring Sessions and even pondered firing him.
