Jeff Sessions: 'I don't follow tweets as closely as I used to'

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is praising what he calls President Donald Trump policy accomplishments while adding that he doesn't "follow tweets as closely" as he used to.

Sessions spoke to a business organization Tuesday in his home state of Alabama, telling a crowd in Montgomery he was proud of his time as U.S. attorney general.

Sessions says he knew running the Justice Department involved making decisions that could create controversy. But he says his "very public adventure" as attorney general exceeded his expectations.

At times Sessions sounded like he was still part of Trump's team, repeatedly using the word "we" to describe things going on in Washington.

The former U.S. senator didn't say whether he might try to regain the seat now held by Alabama Democratic Sen. Doug Jones.
