President Trump told Bloomberg on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions' job is safe until after the midterm elections, but he declined to say whether he'd keep Sessions beyond November.
The backdrop: The interview comes after Trump recently escalated attacks against Sessions in a Fox news interview, describing him as "scared stiff" and "Missing in Action." Republican Senators Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa) also signaled last week that Trump may fire him after the midterms.
