President Donald Trump on Thursday morning said he wasn’t planning to replace his attorney general, at least not right now.
Durning an interview with “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning, Trump addressed a report in The Washington Post that he discussed replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Sessions’s own Chief of Staff Matthew Whitaker. Trump said he “never” talks about private conversations, but said “I can tell you, Matt Whitaker is a great guy, I know Matt Whitaker, but I never talk about conversations I had.”
When pressed further about whether he’s considering ousting Sessions Trump lamented: “I’m not doing anything, I want to get the elections over with. We’ll see what happens,” he said before launching into an diatribe about the “witch hunt” and Sessions’s failure to oversee it.
