Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama was the first of the U.S. senators to publicly endorse presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump back in February this year. So being a staunch and loyal Trump supporter since the beginning, Sessions announced earlier this week that those who are stalling in supporting Trump (i.e. Republican leaders like Paul Ryan) will most likely lose their senate seat.
“I think [Ryan] needs to recognize, on some of these issues, Trump is where the Republicans are, and if you’re going to be a Republican leader, you should be supportive of that,” Sessions said. “My advice is to listen and accept the will of the American people, the Republican voters — the Republican Party is the Republican voters. A lot of our drift within our party has gotten away from [the will of the voters] … I think the leaders in all parties tend to adjust to reality. They just have to or they won’t remain in office. … Already many are sensing it,”
For conservatives who are claiming Trump is not traditional nor does he share the same values, Sessions’ summed up their complaining in one statement: “Oh, give me a break!”
Noting the billionaire mogul has become the new face of the Republican party, and being such a loyal supporter since the beginning, Sessions has revealed he would gladly accept an invitation to become Trump’s running mate if asked.
