President Trump slammed the “absolute scum” in the FBI and former AG Jeff Sessions in a new interview with Sebastian Gorka.
The interview, which also appears in Gorka’s new book The War for America’s soul, was also published by the Daily Caller on Thursday.
“How are we doing, Mr. President, in defeating the Deep State?” Gorka asked. President Trump responded by calling the leadership of the FBI “absolute scum.”
“Well, I think, if it all works out, I will consider it one of the greatest things I’ve done,” he said. “You look at what’s happened to the absolute scum at the top of the FBI. You look at what’s happening over at the Justice Department, now we have a great attorney general.”
Trump then slammed former AG Jeff Sessions. If you recall, during his time as AG, Sessions was often criticized by Trump.
“Whereas before that, with Jeff Sessions, it was a disaster. Just a total disaster. He was an embarrassment to the great state of Alabama,” the president said. “And I put him there because he endorsed me, and he wanted it so badly. And I wish he’d never endorsed me.”
Trump added: “It would have been the greatest non-endorsement I ever had. But it’s too bad. But now we have a great attorney general. And I think with the destruction of the Deep State, certainly I’ve done big damage. They’ve come after me in so many different ways; it’s been such a disgrace. But I think it’ll be one of my great achievements.”
