United States Attorney General, Jeff Sessions has been fired by President Donald Trump.

The president had repeatedly criticized his top law enforcement official after he recused himself from the Russia investigation dogging the White House.

Mr Trump tweeted that Sessions will be temporarily replaced by his chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, who has criticized the Russia inquiry.

“We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well!”Trump wrote on Wednesday.

In a resignation letter, Sessions made clear the decision to go was not his own.

“Dear Mr President, at your request I am submitting my resignation,” he wrote in an undated letter.

“Most importantly as my time as attorney general, we have restored and upheld the rule of law,” Sessions added.
