Trump to decide Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s fate ‘soon’

The White House says it will reach a decision “soon” on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has been publicly humiliated by President Donald Trump.

In a Twitter onslaught, Mr Trump called the country’s top prosecutor “weak”, a day after labelling him “beleaguered”.

Mr Trump has said he is unhappy with Mr Sessions for recusing himself from an FBI inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Mr Sessions said last week he intended to stay in his post.
