‘Haven’t Made a Determination’: Trump Says He Doesn’t Know If He Will Endorse Sessions in Senate Bid

Speaking to reporters on Friday morning, President Donald Trump responded to news that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he is running for Senate in Alamba.

When asked if he would endorse Session in his bid, Trump responded, “Well, I haven’t gotten involved. I saw he said very nice things about me last night,” adding that he hadn’t decided yet, “I haven’t made a determination.”

Watch his comments below:

Thursday night, Sessions appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s show, where he confirmed reports that he is running for his old Senate seat.

Despite friction between Sessions and his old boss created by his decision to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Sessions said he still supports the president.

In his announcement, Sessions notes that he did not attack Trump after he resigned from his position.

“When I left President Trump’s cabinet, did I write a tell-all book? No. Did I go on CNN and attack the president? No. Have I said a crossword about President Trump? No.”

Sessions said it was an honor to serve in the Trump administration, adding that he believes he can help push the president’s agenda in the Senate, “No senator in the Senate would be more effective at advancing President Trump’s agenda than I would be.”

Watch his comments below:

He reminded Carlson that he was the first senator to endorse Trump during the 2016 election, and said he would push other senators to support Trump’s agenda.

“We should be able to put together a majority. We should drive these issues. We could take it to the American people and name names and show who’s for what and make them vote.”

Sessions said that he hopes to be able to speak to the president about his Senate bid, though he noted he had not been given the opportunity yet.

When asked on Friday if Trump had forgiven Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, the president said, “I don’t even think about it.”
