SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he intends to stay on the job and fight for President Donald Trump's agenda. Sessions tells The Associated Press that he and Trump have a "harmony of values and beliefs." His remarks come after a week of being berated by Trump in public as weak and ineffective.
Sessions spoke about his job during a trip to El Salvador to increase international cooperation against the MS-13 gang. The former Alabama senator says he serves at the pleasure of the president and will remain at the head of the Justice Department until Trump decides otherwise.
Trump remains upset that Sessions recused himself months ago from the investigation into interactions between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.
