Popular columnist Charles Krauthammer just argued on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” that Attorney General Jeff Sessions tenure in Washington is limited. On the Thursday broadcast, Krauthammer said that it is just a matter of time before the attorney general leaves his office because of President Trump’s recent public criticism.
Krauthammer said, “Well, there’s a reason that presidents generally don’t do that, leaders of any kind don’t do that. Because every time you look at Jeff Sessions now, in the back of your head, you’re going to be looking at that guy and saying, he’s just been attacked by his own president, the man who appointed him. And he’s obviously lost the confidence of the president. They’re not going to say it because if you say it, he has to resign. He doesn’t want to resign, but I think this sort of limits his tenure. It’s only a matter of time. You can’t really do this. And it speaks to the fact — look, Trump is clearly unconventional. We knew that coming in, but there’s a reason for the conventions. And that is, you so undercut an underling that he can’t really function effectively, and that’s what’s just happened now.”
You can watch a clip of Krauthammer’s interview below. Do you think that he is right? Do you think that Sessions will resign from his position soon? Do you believe that Trump should stick to some of the conventions in place politically?
