Of a “world-class legal mind” and “tarnished” it took less than six months for President Trump to change his opinion of his attorney General.

Trump said in the may a little more than a year after Jeff Sessions recused himself from the ongoing Russia investigation– that he wished he had picked someone else, the management of the Department of Justice.

Trump is the public criticism of the Sessions is far too much away from the songs of praise on the former Alabama senator, during the campaign, if he even retweeted someone asks for him to choose sessions, as his running mate.

Here is a look at is how Trump has changed the public’s relationship with meetings over time.

The Campaign

While Trump still had to fight to Democrat Hillary Clinton for the White house, Trump praised often Sessions, an early follower of the bombastic Republican.

Trump thanked Sessions for his approval in a lengthy Facebook post in February 2016, said he was “deeply honored” Sessions”.

“He was said as the Senate is the indispensable man and the “gold-standard” of Trump.

In June 2016, Trump responded to a Twitter user suggested Trump tap meetings, as his running mate. Trump informed the proposal and added, “He is a great guy!”

“@KathyCeurter: @realDonaldTrump please, please Mr. Trump do @Senator Jeff sessions is their VP. He is the perfect running mate.” He is a great guy!

The Nomination

Trump introduced the Sessions of the “with great pride,” as the country of the attorney General on Feb. 9, 2017.

“He is a man of integrity, a man of principle and a man of total, absolute determination,” Trump said at the time.

Congratulations to our new attorney General, @Senator sessions!

“These dangerous times require a determined attorney general, which is what Jeff,” Trump said. “Jeff understands that to serve the job of the attorney general, and they protect the people in the United States, and that is exactly what he is doing, and will do, better than anyone else can. It is designed for you better than anyone else.”

The Conflict

In March 2017, Trump initially defended the meetings, as he was criticized for meeting with a Russian Ambassador.

Only: The same Russian Ambassador, met with Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times and 4 times in the past year alone.

But, Trump its attorney General criticized sharply on social media and the press called him “distressed” and beat him for not investigating Clinton – although Trump himself said, after he was elected, he did not pursue the intention, a study of their use of a private E-Mail server, while she was foreign Minister.

Trump told The New York Times in August 2017, he would not the Ministry have to lead the sessions, the justice, if he knew, he would recuse himself from the supervision of the Russia-study

“Meetings should never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me, before he took the job, and I would have taken someone else,” he said.

Trump repeated that line of attack in a series of tweets in may. The President cited comments from House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, a Republican, the controversial proposals had a conversation Trump with meetings about his distancing himself lost in obstruction of justice.

“I think what the President is doing, is an expression of frustration, Attorney Gen., Jeff Sessions should have shared these reasons for recusal before accepting the job, not after that,” Gowdy told CBS News. “If I were the President, and I took someone that the country is the chief law enforcement officer, and she later told me, ‘Oh, by the way, I am not be able to participate in the most important case in the office, I would be frustrated to be.”

“There are a lot of really good lawyers in the country. He could be someone else picked up, continued,” Gowdy.

Trump cited Gowdy’s remarks and added, “And I wish I did!”

Rep. Trey Gowdy, “I don’t think so, I think what the President is doing, is an expression of the frustration that the attorney General have shared meetings should these grounds for recusal before accepting the job, not afterwards. If I were the President, and I took it someone in the country….
