Trump: Appointing Jeff Sessions AG ‘biggest mistake’ of first term

President Trump says naming Jeff Sessions — an ardent supporter in 2016 — as attorney general was the biggest mistake of his first term.

Mr. Trump, asked in an NBC interview if he’d like to do anything over, didn’t hesitate, signaling the former Alabama senator’s decision to recuse himself from the Russian meddling investigation still rankles.

“Yeah, that was the biggest mistake,” Mr. Trump told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd in an interview airing Sunday.
