Trump’s lat­est Twit­ter salvo fol­lowed a re­port in the Wash­ing­ton Post that the pres­i­dent and his ad­vi­sors have dis­cussed re­plac­ing Ses­sions, one of the Repub­li­can bil­lion­aire’s ear­li­est sup­port­ers.

“At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions has taken a VERY weak po­si­tion on Hil­lary Clin­ton crimes (where are E-mails; DNC server; In­tel leak­ers!” Trump tweeted.

Trump has openly crit­i­cised Ses­sions for re­cus­ing him­self from over­see­ing a fed­eral probe into pos­si­ble col­lu­sion be­tween the Trump cam­paign and Rus­sia to med­dle in the 2016 US pres­i­den­tial elec­tions. Ses­sions has said he has no plans to re­sign.
