President Trump has stated that Sessions was only appointed because of his loyalty during the campaign. Sessions responded that he will not be influenced by political pressure.
President Trump told Bloomberg in an interview Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will remain in his position until at least the upcoming midterm elections.
“I just would love to have him do a great job,” Trump told the publication in an interview, before departing for a rally in Indiana.
The president declined to comment when asked if he would keep Sessions on after the November elections.
The tensions between Trump and his attorney general appeared to reach a pivotal point last week after Trump again criticized Sessions for his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation during an appearance on Fox News.
