Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged President Donald Trump's frustration with his recusal from the Russia investigation and attributed the president's Twitter attacks on his as being "just his style."

"The president has been frustrated with the recusal, and I understand that," Sessions said Friday on the "Matt & Aunie Show" on WAPI-FM in Birmingham, Ala. "He made that plain.

"There’s no doubt about it."

Sessions, a former five-term Alabama Republican senator, then noted that Trump had complimented him recently, including in a speech in New Hampshire and at a roundtable on sanctuary cities at the White House this week.

"I feel like the most important thing is he has allowed us and the Department of Justice to contribute to an agenda that he believes in and I believe in," the attorney general said.

Trump's agenda includes ending the opioid crisis, stopping and naming conservatives to the federal judiciary.

Still, the president has repeatedly slammed Sessions on Twitter, including for his decision to assign an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use to the Justice Department inspector general and not a special counsel:

On the attacks, the attorney general said: "I serve at his pleasure.

"That’s just his style," he added. "He says what’s on his mind at the time.

"I understand that. The president sets policy in this country, and we respect that.

"If I felt like I couldn’t carry out the principles I believe in — that he didn’t believe in that, as we do our work every day — that would be one thing," Sessions explained.

"But I feel like we’re able to do that every day."
