Closed-door session: Is Jeff Sessions running on extra-time in Trump’s cabinet?

US President Donald Trump has seen four of his top officials leave his cabinet in a period of five months. Former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn resigned in February less than a month after Trump became the 45th President of the United States.

Flynn’s resignation did not come as a shock to many political observers who believed he was going to bite the dust following his perceived ties and meetings with Russian officials. But one man has also been linked with not only having ties with Russia but also meeting with some of its officials, is Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

After Flynn’s resignation, several other top US officials have either resigned or were kicked out by the Trump administration. Sally Yates, James Comey, Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus and recently Anthony Scaramucci are all gone, but Sessions still remains.

Of all these, Sessions has received the most attacks from Trump both in the Main Stream Media and on the president’s favourite outrage machine, Twitter. In an interview with the New York Times, Trump said he regretted appointing Sessions. Time and again, the president has expressed his anger over Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from investigating Flynn’s ties with Russia.

The attack on Sessions is not limited to his boss in the White House, as some senators have also called for his resignation, while Trump gave a hint last week as to how long Sessions will remain in his administration.

Despite the barrage of attacks from his boss, Sessions has kept his cool and has refused to be bullied into resignation by Trump or anyone else. It remains to be seen if he will bow to pressure or will he continue to maintain a thick skin?

Like Trump has said, only time will tell.
