Mr. Trump regrets

President Trump has given a wide-raning interview to New York Times reporters Peter Baker, Michael Schmidt and Maggie Haberman. The Mueller investigation is on his mind in a big way. President Trump observes: “Sessions should have 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 picked somebody else” (audio below). The President further characterizes Sessions’s recusal as “extremely unfair, and that’s a mild word, to the president” (a point he makes twice).

I read the interview as an invitation to Attorney General Sessions to resign. As I hear the audio, President Trump’s anger rises to the surface. This can’t be Trump’s last word on the arrangement that now obtains and that he so regrets.
