President Donald Trump made his first public comment about former Attorney General Jeff Sessions throwing his hat in the ring for Senate with a non-committal reply about the endorsement.
“Well I haven’t gotten involved. I saw he said very nice things about me last night. But we’ll have to see,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House for events in Georgia according to The Hill.
“I haven’t made a determination,” he added, noting that Sessions has “tough competition” in the Alabama Senate race.
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro didn’t hold back her feelings about former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has recently announced that he plans to run for a position as Senator of Alabama, again.
The Fox weekend host made her comments on Friday’s edition of ” Fox and Friends” where one of the hosts stated that, “The problem is that the president of the United States if furious with him because he recused himself from the Russia investigation and the president says ‘I had three years of hell, essentially, with this witch hunt and Jeff Sessions is responsible.’ So how is the president going to react to Jeff Sessions running for Senate?”
“You know I don’t know how, I haven’t spoken with the president about it,” Pirro replied. “But this is the only thing I’m worried about, first of all, this guy has a primary to begin with, he’s got to win the primary first.
“There are four other republican running, and you know, as I look at him, you know, he said he was the attorney general, but I don’t think anybody knows it because he was hiding under his desk most of the time, because as he just said on Tucker last night, he said, ‘I was told I should recuse myself.’”
Pirro was referencing Sessions’ interview from Thursday evening on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” where he talked about his candidacy.
Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions tells @TuckerCarlson that he will file his paperwork tomorrow to run for his old Senate seat in Alabama.

Pirro was incredulous when she “read that Jeff Sessions says something like ‘I’m hoping that the president is going to warm up to me.’
“Are you kidding? First of all you’ve got to win, secondly what makes you think he should warm up to you, given your experience and the fact that you never were an attorney general.
