Even though he appointed Sessions, Trump partly blames him for the lost Republican senate seat in Alabama.

President Donald Trump has attacked his own attorney general more than once, in the past calling Jeff Sessions "weak" and "beleaguered" and voicing displeasure with his recusal from the Russia probe.

But Sessions is also partly to blame for the lost Republican seat after Democrat Doug Jones' victory over Roy Moore in Alabama, according to Trump.

Recently, Trump bemoaned the Republicans’ loss in a special election in Alabama and in part blamed Sessions, whose departure from the Senate to head to Justice necessitated the election.
