Jeff Sessions fires back at Trump for interfering in Alabama Senate race

President Trump's relationship with Jeff Sessions soured after Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation

"3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began", Trump tweet Friday. "Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. That's why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville". I did my duty & you're damn fortunate I did.

Sessions, 73, said his March 2017 decision, forced because he did not disclose to Congress contacts with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 election, "protected the rule of law and resulted in your exoneration".

Sessions later alleged Tuberville is "too afraid to debate me". He says you're wrong on China & trade. He wants to bring in even more foreign workers to take American jobs. That's not your agenda and it's not mine or Alabama's. "He never said a kind word bout Donald Trump while I was traveling across the country (with the future president in 2017)". To not recuse myself from that investigation, of which I was a target as a senior campaign official and a witness, would have been breaking the law.

"If I had ignored and broken the law, the Democrats would have used that to severely damage the President".

"I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general", Trump said.

Tuberville and Sessions are now competing to win a July 14 Republican primary runoff election whose victor will face incumbent Democratic Alabama Senator Doug Jones in the November national election.

Sessions resignation came on November 7, 2018 - a day after the national mid-term elections, at Trump's request.

Trump's anti-malaria drug has high COVID-19 death risk
Those answers can only come from large studies in which patients are randomly assigned to either receive the drugs or a placebo. The drug hydroxychloroquine offers no benefit to patients hospitalised with Covid-19, according to a new study in The Lancet .

Sessions responded after Trump tweeted earlier on Friday his support for former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, who Sessions faces in July 14 in a Senate runoff election.

If former Attorney General Jeff Sessions - now running to regain a U.S. "I won't ever run from a fight in the U.S. Senate", Tuberville, a political neophyte, said in a social media statement.

A May 2020 survey of 607 likely Republican voters showed 55.1 percent probably or definitely favoring Tuberville, compared to 31.8 percent supporting Sessions.

Sessions is an immigration hardliner and mentor to the hard-right Trump adviser Stephen Miller.

The back-and-forth weekend explosion between Trump and Sessions is somewhat of a pivot for Sessions who, on Thursday, repeatedly praised the president and his "America First" agenda during a phone call with the Mobile County Republican executive committee.

In the same tweet, Trump also criticized Tuberville's opponent, former Atty.

Sessions has been so determined in its support of the president who humiliated him and fired him that many critics likened one early campaign ad to a hostage video.
