Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions

Tuesday afternoon, White House press secretary Sean Spicer declined to say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions.

Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe in March, shorty after The Washington Post reported on undisclosed meetings between him and the Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.

But in March, Sessions made a decision to recuse himself from any investigations into possible Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, after it was disclosed that he had met twice with the Russian ambassador to the USA past year.

Israeli Army Radio: Saudi persuaded Trump to postpone embassy move
Trump was "very forceful" in his discussions with the two leaders, and "everyone has to compromise", Tillerson said. Trump has repeatedly underscored US support for Israel during his first worldwide trip as president.

Asked by ABC News if the attorney general had threatened or offered to resign, Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment.

Few elected officials were as quick and passionate about supporting Donald Trump for president than Jeff Sessions, who was a senator at the time.

The frustration comes at a critical juncture for Trump. ABC's sources said Trump "has remained fixated on it", and two sources said Trump has "lashed out repeatedly" at Sessions privately, pointing at his decision to recuse himself as the reason for the escalation in the Russian Federation investigation. Sessions' recusal meant that the deputy attorney general would oversee the FBI investigation.

The tense relationship between the two men "runs both ways", ABC wrote, adding that Sessions' sentiment prompted his resignation offer.

Trump appeared to fault Sessions's Justice Department on Monday for improperly handling his travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries.

After the election, Sessions was rewarded with one of the most prominent positions in Trump's new administration, atop the Justice Department.

World leaders reaffirm commitment to fighting climate change
European Council President Donald Tusk made a personal appeal to Mr Trump not to pull Washington out of the Paris climate agreement.

Trump's anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. Sessions was the first senator to endorse Trump early in the presidential campaign a year ago when few Republican lawmakers supported the candidate.
