Trump Ridicules Jeff Sessions For Primary Showing

The Hill reports:

President Trump criticized Republican Alabama Senate contender Jeff Sessions early Wednesday, asserting that his former attorney general didn’t win the state’s primary outright because of what Trump described as Sessions’s lack of “wisdom or courage” in his handling of the Russia investigation.

Trump’s critical tweet about Sessions suggests the president may seek to boost former football coach Tommy Tuberville in the runoff election.

Trump has thus far stayed out of the race, though a source familiar with the situation told The Hill last month that Trump could support Sessions’s opponent if the race advanced to a runoff. Still, Wednesday’s tweet did not contain an explicit endorsement of Tuberville.
