Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions reportedly said he stills supports President Trump even though he was fired from his position and mocked by the president for more than a year.
Sessions praised Trump at a Republican fundraiser in Alabama Tuesday night, according to Alabama.com.
The ex-Trump administration official reportedly praised Trump for “relentlessly and actually honoring the promises he made to the American people.”
“That’s why I still do support him,” he said.
Alabama GOP Chair Terry Lathan confirmed Sessions was the guest of honor at the event, tweeting images from what she said was a sold out annual “Freedom Dinner” in Madison County.
“As Kanye West says, he has dragon energy,” Sessions said, according to a video of his speech published by the Montgomery Advertiser.
“I think that’s a good description of him, really.”
Sessions spoke for 40 minutes but didn’t address the House impeachment inquiry or speak to reporters as he left, the Montgomery Advertiser reports.
Trump went against Sessions after the former attorney general recused himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Trump then mocked Session publicly before, and after, firing him following the 2018 elections, when the Democrats took back control of the House.
Democrat Sen. Doug Jones also flipped Session’s former Alabama Senate seat in a special election that was open after his appointment as attorney general.
