U.S. President Donald Trump has evaluated positively the outcome of the midterm elections, but has stated that U.S. federal Attorney General would be replaced.
American news agency AP reports on Thursday, November 8, that according to preliminary results of the Congress election, Trump’s Republican Party has strengthened its majority in the Senate, while the majority of the House of Representatives has been gained by the Democratic Party.
The U.S. President wrote on Twitter pointing to the positive effect of his endorsement to Congress and governor candidates before the election: «Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well. Those that did not, say goodbye! Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!»
French news agency AFP reported that Trump announced that the federal Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been asked to leave the office and his duties would be fulfilled by Attorney General’s current Chief of Staff until a replacement candidate is confirmed in the office.
