Sessions: Trump Hasn’t Apologized For Public Rebukes, He Can Scold Cabinet If He Wants

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday that President Donald Trump has not apologized for publicly attacking him several times last month.

Sessions appeared on NBC’s “Today Show,” where he discussed the white supremacist attack in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend and was asked about the president’s attacks against him.

Trump repeatedly castigated Sessions on Twitter last month; the president said he would have picked a different attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the probe into the Trump campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Reports circulated at the time that Trump was looking to replace Sessions.

Sessions said that it was the president’s right to “scold” him and any member of his Cabinet if he wants.

“I believe in the president’s agenda; I believe in his leadership,” Sessions said. “He has a right to scold his Cabinet members if he’s not happy with them, and he has a right to have people in his Cabinet that he believes will serve his agenda.”

Sessions added that he has not yet received an apology and appeared to indicate he does not expect one.

“He has not apologized,” Sessions said. “He is quite frank about his concerns and he expressed them openly.”
