The tension is rising between President Trump and Jeff Sessions. But according to Fox’s Krauthammer, Jeff Sessions is a “dead man walking”. “I think the bottom line is he wants him to resign. On Friday, I said that Sessions was a wounded man walking. Last night on ‘Special Report’ I said he was a dangerous, wounded man walking. Tonight, he is a dead man walking,” said Krauthammer.
“There is no way that a president can humiliate a Cabinet member, a strong supporter from the beginning, in the way that Trump has done, just piling it on and expect that this relationship is going to last. He’ll either be fired, or it could be that he has decided that he is going to dig in his heels and some kind of resistance — he’ll stay in office no matter what. But this cannot last,” said Krauthammer.
“The danger to Trump is that Sessions represents sort of the policy side, the philosophical side, the conservative side of what Trump represented, and he held a lot of that coalition brought back to Trump,” Krauthammer said.
“And by getting rid Sessions, he has alienated many conservatives. There are some who are already complaining. And that could be dangerous for Trump because what sustains them is the power and the loyalty of his base,” said Krauthammer.
