Sessions, in the Friday night Tweet, told Trump he did his duty and "you're damn fortunate I did". "Perhaps you've forgotten. They trusted me when I stepped out and put that trust on the line for you". It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration. "Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do", he said.

Trump previously endorsed Tuberville in March, after Tuberville garnered the most votes in the state's GOP Senate primary, AL.com reported. Jones will face the runoff victor on November 3.

"3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began", Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Jeff, you had your chance & you blew it", Trump wrote, referring to Sessions' handling of the investigation. He let our Country down.

Sessions went after Trump's favored candidate in a second tweet.

Trump was commenting on Twitter after Tuberville claimed Sessions threw Trump "to the wolves" when he recused himself. The decision drew Trump's ire and the president has continued to criticize the former attorney general in the years following.

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

In a video on Real Madrid's Twitter account , Hazard claimed: "Very excellent to be back on the pitch to deal with the kids". Players were allowed to resume individual training from May 4 as the country began to de-escalate its lockdown measures.

Sessions represented Alabama in the Senate for 20 years before joining the Trump administration in 2017.

If Sessions' response to Trump seemed made more in sorrow than anger, he was more aggressive towards his opponent. Tuberville has begun airing ads featuring Trump's criticisms of Sessions.

"I wanted him to be successful", Sessions said.

Sessions also juxtaposed his political experience on issues like immigration and trade against Tuberville, a political novice. "I know Alabama. Tuberville doesn't", he added.

Tommy Tuberville pumps his fist at supporters. He is in a razor close battle with Jeff Sessions and Bradley Byrne. Despite this, he managed to hang on in the job until November 2018 before finally resigning.

Trump blames Sessions' recusal for U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia/mueller-says-he-could-not-charge-trump-as-congress-weighs-impeachment-idUSKCN1SZ1OC, which cast a cloud over his presidency but didn't result in any charges against Trump.
