Jeff Sessions Hits Back At Latest Attack By Trump

NBC News reports:

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions stood up to his old boss Friday after President Donald Trump encouraged Alabama voters to reject Sessions in his bid to return to the U.S. Senate.

Trump on Friday afternoon once again tweeted his endorsement for Sessions’ rival, college football coach Tommy Tuberville, in the primary contest for the seat Sessions held before joining Trump’s Cabinet.

Sessions and Tuberville finished neck and neck in March in a Republican primary, setting up the July 14 runoff contest. The winner of the runoff will face Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., in November.
