President Donald Trump attacked the “absolute scum” in the FBI and “embarrassment” Jeff Sessions in a new interview with former White House assistant Sebastian Gorka. The friendly interview, which appears in Gorka’s new book, The War For America’s Soul — released this week — was also published by the Daily Caller on Thursday.
“How are we doing, Mr. President, in defeating the Deep State?” Gorka asked. “Well, I think, if it all works out, I will consider it one of the greatest things I’ve done,” he said. “You look at what’s happened to the absolute scum at the top of the FBI. You look at what’s happening over at the Justice Department, now we have a great attorney general.”
“Whereas before that, with Jeff Sessions, it was a disaster. Just a total disaster. He was an embarrassment to the great state of Alabama,” the president said. “And I put him there because he endorsed me, and he wanted it so badly. And I wish he’d never endorsed me.”
