President Donald Trump slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions again in an interview with Hill TV, telling the media outlet, "I don't have an attorney general. It's very sad." 

Trump has criticized Sessions ever since the attorney general decided to recuse himself from the DOJ probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

This time, the President said there are other issues he's not happy about, including border control.  

He also told Hill TV that Sessions' nomination hearings might've impacted his performance in the role, saying he "did very poorly." During those confirmation hearings, Sessions failed to mention two meetings with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. 

Speaking to reporters at the White House Wednesday, the President echoed his disappointment with the top law enforcement official. 

"I'm disappointed in the attorney general for numerous reasons, but we have an attorney general. I'm disappointed in the attorney general for many reasons, and you understand that," he said. 

When asked by Hill TV whether he might consider firing Sessions, Trump responded, "We'll see what happens."
