Trump tells Fox News 'flipping' on your boss 'almost ought to be outlawed'

In a Wednesday interview broadcast Thursday morning, Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt told President Trump that "a lot of your supporters are frustrated" with the Justice Department and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking several times if Trump is going to fire Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after the midterm elections. Trump didn't say no, but said Sessions shouldn't have recused himself, "or he should have told me! Even my enemies say that Jeff Session should have told you that he was going to recuse himself, and then you wouldn't have put him in!"

"What kind of a man is this?" Trump asked. "By the way, the only reason I gave him the job, I felt loyalty. He was an original supporter."

Trump also suggested "flipping" on the boss "almost ought to be outlawed," describing how federal prosecutors use people to incriminate their higher-ups, as in the mafia cases Rudy Giuliani used to prosecute. Watch below. Peter Weber
