President Donald Trump hammered his former Attorney General Jeff Sessions following his mediocre performance in the U.S. Senate primary for the state of Alabama.
Sessions will face a run-off election against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville after neither man achieved the 50 percent threshold needed to win the U.S. Senate nomination cleanly. Tuberville came in first place, receiving 32.2 percent or 235,461 votes, while Sessions came in a close second, receiving 31.1 percent or 227,492 votes.
President Trump wasted no time to gloat regarding Sessions, who he has routinely blasted for recusing himself from the Russian collusion probe while serving as AG.
This is what happens to someone who loyally gets appointed Attorney General of the United States & then doesn’t have the wisdom or courage to stare down & end the phony Russia Witch Hunt. Recuses himself on FIRST DAY in office, and the Mueller Scam begins! https://t.co/2jGnRgOS6h

Sessions attempted to portray himself as the pro-MAGA choice for the U.S. Senate seat. Despite being hammered by the President, Sessions continues to praise his former boss for “relentlessly and actually honoring the promises he made to the American people.”
“That’s why I still do support him,” he said.
“I’ll have a better relationship. I know what he campaigned on. I was with him at those rallies. I saw how people reacted to his strength and his vigor. I do think he’ll win again,” Sessions said regarding President Trump on Tuesday morning.
But Trump is apparently not as keen on mending fences, remembering how Sessions’ malfeasance as AG hamstrung his presidency for years.
“You look at what’s happening over at the Justice Department, now we have a great attorney general. Whereas before that, with Jeff Sessions, it was a disaster. Just a total disaster. He was an embarrassment to the great state of Alabama,” Trump said last year.
“And I put him there because he endorsed me, and he wanted it so badly. And I wish he’d never endorsed me,” he added.
“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!” Trump wrote in a tweet back in June 2018 when Sessions was still the AG.
Big League Politics has analyzed the race between Tuberville and Sessions, which could be quite a difficult choice for conservative Alabama voters:
Immigration policy has proven to be a consistent theme in the heated Senate race. Sessions, a longtime US Senator who departed from the seat he’s currently running for to serve as Donald Trump’s Attorney General, has lambasted Tuberville for a history of confusing remarks appearing to endorse pro-big business amnesty and open borders immigration policy. Tuberville has hired campaign consultants with a proven track record of lobbying for amnesty, and he’s even gone so far as to say that the United States “needs” more than 100,000 illegal immigrants entering the country every month to provide cheap labor.
The race could prove to be an indicator of the Republican Party’s views on immigration, at least in the southern state. Sessions has consistently led efforts to block amnesty and globalist cheap labor immigration policy throughout his career as a Senator and Attorney General.
Sessions has sought to explain his falling out with President Donald Trump during his tenure as Attorney General to Alabama voters, reminding the electorate that he’s consistently remained a strong Trump supporter and emphasizing that he hopes to repair his relationship with the President upon returning to his old Senate seat. Sessions was the first Republican Senator and major American political figure to endorse Trump for President, a feather in his cap he’s been keen to emphasize throughout his campaign.
The runoff election between Sessions and Tuberville is expected to take place later this month.
Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
