Sessions was sacked just one day after the 2018 midterm elections, and he's now facing off against Tuberville in Alabama's Republican Senate primary. It was the first public rebuke Sessions has made toward Trump since re-entering politics in November by announcing plans to run for the Senate.
It was an unexpectedly bold rebuke from Sessions, who has long endured the President's verbal assaults as he fights against his GOP primary rival, Tommy Tuberville, to win over heavily pro-Trump Alabama.
Sessions was sacked after the midterm elections in 2018 and replaced by William Barr, an attorney general who has proved much more to Trump's liking, working to protect the president and to reject the findings and premise of the justice department investigation into Russian election interference. Doug Jones, and backed Sessions' primary challenger, college football coach Tommy Tuberville. "Perhaps you've forgotten. They trusted me when I stepped out and put that trust on the line for you". "Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration", Sessions tweeted in response to Trump.
If former Attorney General Jeff Sessions - now running to regain a U.S. Trump endorsed Tuberville's candidacy in March. "Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do", he added.

Other ways the virus doesn't easily spread are from animals to people or people to animals, the CDC's updated webpage says. According to CDC guidance updated on its site Wednesday, the virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.
The President tweeted earlier Friday in support of Tuberville and said in part, "Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions".
"If I had ignored and broken the law, the Democrats would have used that to severely damage the President". The victor will go on to compete against incumbent Democratic Alabama Senator Doug Jones in the November election. The victor will face U.S. Sen. "I'll always have President Trump's back", Tuberville says in the ad. Even in sticking up for himself, Sessions distorted the facts in order to flatter Trump, who was definitively not exonerated in the Mueller probe.
Sessions, in a follow-up tweet, called Tuberville a coward for refusing to debate him and criticized his stance on immigration.
That move soured his relationship with Trump and he was finally pushed out in November 2018.
