President-Elect, Donald Trump has appointed the next Attorney General of the United States.

Jefferson Sessions, currently a senator for Alabama,  who will be in charge of the US Department of Justice was previously rejected as a judge because of alleged racism.

US- AG NOMINEE

Mr Sessions Senate Armed Services Committee, the Judiciary Committee and the Budget Committee  was Alabama’s attorney general before he joined the Senate since 1996.

But in 1989, a Senate committee had denied Mr Sessions a federal judgeship after lawmakers heard testimony that he had used the N-word.

The allegation of racism made against the Attorney General of Federation-nominee would make his Senate confirmation hearing a difficult one.

“It is an honour to nominate US Senator Jeff Sessions to serve as Attorney General of the United States,” Mr Trump said in a statement.

Mr Trump who won the recently concluded US election said Mr Session was a “world-class legal mind.”

A Trump spokesperson said after the two men met following the US election: “The President-elect has been unbelievably impressed with Senator Sessions and his phenomenal record as Alabama’s Attorney General and US Attorney.”
