At the eleventh hour on Monday night, Donald Trump called on Republican voters in Alabama to issue their first-round Senate ballots on Tuesday against his former Attorney General – claiming that they already had Jeff Sessions’ “ bad ” leadership had experienced.
Trump assured in a 30-second robocall that Tommy Tuberville, the Republican running for the first nomination against Sessions, would have a direct line to his Oval Office phone.
“He’s getting a cold direct line to my office,” Trump said in the candidate’s approval in the recording.
“We had the Jeff Sessions thing, we tried it, I had no idea it could be as bad as it was,” said the President of his first Attorney General, who served from February 2017 – November 2018.
“But he had no idea,” Trump continued. “He just let it get away from him. It’s a real pity. ‘
Trump also claimed that Alabamians don’t want Sessions ‘back in Washington’ and endorsed Tuberville as a ‘winner’.

Before becoming the Attorney General of Trump in 2017, Sessions served as a U.S. Senator from Alabama for ten years since 1997 – he is now trying to reclaim his old seat. Before that, he was a state attorney general for two years.
In the Alabama primaries in March, Sessions earned 1.8 percent less than Tuberville, who finished first among the six candidates with 33.4 percent of the vote. However, the margin was not enough for Tuberville to win outright and forced a run-off between him and Sessions.
On Tuesday, Ronny Jackson, who served as a physician to the President from 2013-2018, will also face declining elections to hold the general election vote for a home seat for Texas’s 13th district.
Jackson received just 19.9 percent of the Republican vote in the March 3 primary election for Josh Winegarner 28.8 percent, but it was enough to cause a runoff between the two.
Trump endorsed his former physician earlier this year, who defended the President’s health during his tenure amid questions about his lifestyle and mental stability.
In May, Trump tweeted, “ Admiral Ronny Jackson (@ RonnyJackson4TX) is a very successful doctor and navy veteran running for Congress in # TX13. Strong in crime, the frontier and agriculture – and he loves our vets! Ronny has my full and total approval! Vote for Ronny! ‘
Trump retweeted that approval Monday night.

Sessions can lose the loss of his Senate seat if the President continues to curse at him.
The former Attorney General left the White House with the President on dire conditions.
He resigned at Trump’s request in November 2018, after serving nearly two full years of the President’s first term.
The feud between Trump and Sessions stemmed from the then Attorney General who decided to evade all investigations regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump claimed, and still complains, that sessions should not have reused themselves and testified on his behalf.
Journalist and author Bob Woodward also revealed in his book Fear: Trump in the White House, released a few months before the retirement, that the President called Sessions “ mentally handicapped ” and a “ stupid southerner. ”
Trump continues to deny that he has used ‘these terms for everyone’.
