WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he has no immediate plans to resign a day after President Donald Trump excoriated the nation's top prosecutor for recusing himself from the probe of suspected Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

"We love this job, we love this department and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate," he said Thursday.

A former senator from Alabama, Sessions was one of Trump's earliest and ardent supporters and became attorney general in February. A month later, he took himself out of a Justice Department-led inquiry into the election following revelations he'd failed to disclose meetings with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

Trump on Wednesday told The New York Times he never would have tapped Sessions for the job had he known a recusal was coming.
