Trump was reportedly blindsided by the decision and furious with Sessions at the time.

On June 6 Deep State activists reported that Trump was still upset with the Attorney General for his unintelligible decision.
On June 8 former FBI Director and leaker James Comey admitted he played the DOJ into launching a Special Counsel investigation of the Trump-Russia connections.
In a July interview President Trump told The New York Times he never would have selected Sessions for Attorney General if he knew he would recuse himself from the Russian witch hunt.
In an explosive report, President Trump humiliated Attorney General Jeff Sessions after Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to oversee the Russia investigation. President Trump called Sessions an “idiot,” and demanded he step down as head of the Department of Justice.
Daily Mail UK reports:
President Donald Trump chewed out attorney general Jeff Sessions in the Oval Office and called him an ‘idiot’ after Robert Mueller was named as special counsel, according to the latest report of White House turmoil over Russia.
The president considered the act a display of disloyalty from Sessions, his first Senate supporter, in an event that set in motion a wide-ranging probe that now encompasses Trump family members and top campaign officials with subject matter including Russia contacts and possible obstruction.
Trump called Sessions an ‘idiot’ and told him to resign, the New York Times reported. The president told the former Alabama senator that appointing him was one of the worst decisions he had made.
Sessions, described in the article as ‘humiliated,’ replied that he would, and furnished a resignation letter. He told associates it was the most humiliating event in his public life.
The president apparently thought better of the decision, and did not accept Sessions’ resignation.
AG Sessions has been a complete disappointment since he took over as Attorney General.
