Trump and Sessions have had heated exchanges - Western Mass News - WGGB/WSHM

Following reports that President Donald Trump was extremely angry with Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, causing their relationship to grow "sour", ABC News came out with a new story indicating Sessions was at one point willing to quit.

The White House on Tuesday defended President Donald Trump's use of Twitter despite criticism from the media, telling reporters that the same people who "critiquing his use of it now critiqued it during the election, and it turned out pretty well for him then".

Trump's tweets have become the target of mockery for his opponents, as in the case when he recently sent out a mysterious "covfefe", and the source of concern for his allies, who fear that the politician may tarnish his self image by misspeaking.

It is unclear when Sessions offered to resign, and Trump refused the offer.

"We've made it clear that the danger is real the law is clear, and there is no question that we should prevail", Spicer said.

Trump on Tuesday tweeted about the Justice Department - the agency Sessions heads saying - that he wanted a "much tougher version" of a "travel ban" and "not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted" to the Supreme Court last week.

Sessions' offer to resign was first reported by ABC News.

Trump's anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. In the Senate, Sessions crusaded for a hard-line stance on immigration and continues to speak out about arresting and prosecuting illegal immigrants as he travels across the country. The response, in a word, is heartening. Our role as an independent, fact-based news organization has never been clearer.
