As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Goes After Sessions Again

President Trump Tuesday again assailed his attorney general, suggesting that he should be prosecuting Hillary Clinton.

Trump also went after the acting head of the FBI.

Trump appears to be weighing replacing Sessions with someone who might get rid of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. According to a report, he has been asking people how conservatives would react if he ditched Sessions.

Trump has a large reservoir of support among conservatives and others who want the country to change and who put him in office. But it’s not forever, and it’s not unlimited. The political landscape can change very quickly. Just ask George H.W. Bush, who stood at like 90 percent favorable after he won the first Iraq War and then watched his popularity plummet and then lost to Bill Clinton. Although of course, Bush’s supporters never had the passion Trump’s do.

Sessions is a genuine hero on the right who is viewed as the most effective person to implement Trump’s agenda on immigration, religious liberty, and other issues. I believe that if he if he deletes Sessions, that reservoir will begin to erode and perhaps start moving in an irreversible direction, even if he appoints a credible alternative.

I’d be very interested to hear what you think. Maybe you disagree.
