Jeff Sessions and his former boss are continuing their bitter Twitter war of words, with President Trump on Saturday night urging his first attorney general to drop out of the race for his old Alabama Senate seat.
“Jeff, you had your chance & you blew it,” Trump tweeted.
“Recused yourself ON DAY ONE (you never told me of a problem), and ran for the hills,” Trump tweeted.
“You had no courage, & ruined many lives. The dirty cops, & others, got caught by better & stronger people than you. Hopefully this slime will pay a big . . . price. You should drop out of the race & pray that super liberal [Democratic candidate] @DougJones . . . gets beaten badly.”
Trump, once a close ally of Sessions, soured on the relationship after the Alabaman recused himself from the Russia probe, which consumed years of Trump’s presidency.
Trump strongly supports Sessions’ primary opponent, Tommy Tuberville.
“Your personal feelings don’t dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do,” Sessions had tweeted Friday.
