President Donald Trump’s new Attorney General Jeff Sessions is already getting ready for big battles in Washington DC as he promises to weed out corruption, waste, fraud and abuse.
Sessions was a Trump supporter before any other elected official in the United States. And now, he is the new Attorney General who will restore law and order.
After being confirmed, Sessions addressed the United State Senate.
Check out his full address here:
“Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) urged his colleagues to be respectful to one another during his Senate farewell speech after tensions over his nomination to be attorney general boiled over this week. ‘I would say what would be my prayer for this body is that in the future maybe the intensity of the last few weeks would die down and maybe somehow we get along better,’ Sessions said. He added that he could respond to weeks of criticism from Democrats by ‘calling names’ but added it ‘wouldn’t be appropriate.’ . . . Sessions briefly defended the president in his farewell address, noting that his position was firstly a ‘law enforcement office’ and that the president ‘believes in the rule of law.’ ‘I want to thank President Donald Trump,’ he said. ‘He believes in protecting the American people from crime and violence. He believes in a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest.'”
Finally a Republican who’s up to the challenge of taking on both political establishments.
He’s promising to bring back a law and order attitude to the Department of Justice, rather than the lawlessness the American public has had under President Obama!
