In a tweet Monday, Trump accused Sessions of jeopardizing the chances of re-election for two Republican congressmen by bringing criminal charges against them just before the midterm elections in November.
Donald Trump is mad at Attorney General Jeff Sessions and he's attacking the lawmaker for the illegal activities of other officials who work for the Republican Party. "Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time", Trump said in his tweet. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of NY, his earliest supporters in Congress, who were indicted last month within two weeks of each other on unrelated charges.
A spokeswoman for Sessions declined to comment, and the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty in their cases.
While Sessions is known for being one of the first congressmen to publicly express support for then-candidate Trump, a rift between the attorney general and the POTUS has since occurred and appears to be widening.
Collins' indictment on insider trading charges also stemmed from a call he made to his son in June 2017 - during a congressional picnic at the White House, five months after the president took office.
The president adopted a cheerier tone in a later tweet - reacting to news reports that former Secretary of State and Massachusetts Democrat John Kerry was considering a run for the presidency in 2020.
Under pressure from Trump, Sessions issued an unusual statement last month saying that "while I am attorney general, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations".

The area near the site had been dug up for a metro railway project and construction materials are strewn all over the place. ARMY, Navy and CISF teams were deployed to assist the NDRF , Fire Brigade and the Kolkata Police in the rescue operation.
The Republican president verbally spat on his attorney general in tweets that dripped with disdain.
"Good job Jeff." he added, in a sarcastic comment.
Trump also called Sessions "mentally retarded" and described him as a "traitor" for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation, the book says, according to The Post.
Some Democrats have spoken out loudly about Trump's shaming of Sessions. Trump replied, "I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department".
Judge Andrew Napolitano warned President Donald Trump that his latest salvo against Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "perfect fodder for the cannon of Bob Mueller and Never Trumpers". Trump said he thought it was "very unfair to the president" that Sessions "takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself".
Trump stayed at the White House on Monday, watching television.
