Trump confessed his biggest mistake

World A- A A+

President Trump said the "biggest mistake" of his presidency was appointing Jeff Sessions to be his attorney general.

“If you could have one do-over as president, what would it be?” Trump was asked by Chuck Todd in an interview with NBC's “Meet the Press” that aired Sunday, Yahoo reports.

"It would be personnel," Trump responded.

"I would say if I had one do-over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. That would be my one ... that was the biggest mistake."

In your mind, that’s your worst mistake?” Todd pressed.

“Yeah, that was the biggest mistake,” Trump said.

Trump fired Sessions in 2018 after the president spent a year publicly fuming about his former campaign adviser turned attorney general’s recusal from overseeing the Justice Department’s investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 election. Sessions said he made a "pretty reasonable" decision, given a regulation that prohibits a Justice employee from investigating campaigns in which they are involved and asserted that he would "not be improperly influenced by political considerations."
