WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions says President Donald Trump hasn’t apologized for publicly criticizing him on Twitter last month but that “he has a right to scold his Cabinet members if he’s not happy with them.”

Asked on NBC’s “Today Show” if Trump has apologized, Sessions said he had not. He said Trump “was quite frank about his concerns” and had expressed them. Trump repeatedly criticized Sessions for recusing himself from a federal investigation into Russian interference, once tweeting that Sessions was “very weak.”

Sessions is meeting with Trump and FBI leaders Monday about racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. On CBS’s “This Morning,” Sessions said his relationship with Trump is now “considerably better” and he looks forward to the meeting.

He repeated that he’ll serve as long as Trump wants him.
