Trump on Sessions: 'I don't have an attorney general'

"I hope to be able put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to. expose something that is truly a cancer in our country", Trump said.

Trump has repeatedly asserted that Sessions, a former USA senator from Alabama, did not need to step away from the Russia probe, a move the president believes in part led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russians.

Asked whether he'll fire Sessions, Trump replied, "We'll see what happens".

In prepared remarks for a speech to law enforcement officers in Illinois Wednesday, Sessions credited Trump's "strong leadership" for policies that are "respecting police again and enforcing our laws".

"I'm so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me", Trump told the Hill.

Trump told Hill.TV in an exclusive interview in the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Trump bemoaned, "I have no attorney general".

"That means 311 Chicagoans - friends, neighbors, moms, dads - were killed in 2016 who might still be alive if the murder rate stayed at the 10-year average", Mr. Sessions said. "I mean, he was mixed up and confused, and people that worked with him for, you know, a long time in the Senate were not nice to him, but he was giving very confusing answers", he continued.

Over the Labor Day weekend, Trump took swipes at Sessions over the indictments of Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., and Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.

In May, the U.S. president admitted that he regrets appointing Sessions as attorney-general. Answers that should have been easily answered. Earlier this month, he took to Twitter to accuse Sessions of damaging the chances of Republicans in the November mid-term elections through Justice Department investigations. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did, " he said, referring to his decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

All of this tends to ignore the fact that Trump could make a change at AG any time he likes. In addition, rapes more than tripled and auto theft and aggravated assault went up by a third, according to the attorney general.

In August, Trump told Fox News that Sessions has allowed Democrats to control the Justice Department and get away with "subversion" of his administration. That's a bad precedent to set when it comes to the Department of Justice.
