A very controversial nominee of President Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions has been sworn in as the Attorney General of the United States. 

Mr Sessions, a four term senator from Alabama, who will be in charge of the US Department of Justice after a vote of 52 to 47, was previously rejected as a judge because of alleged racism.

Addressing the chamber after the vote, Mr Sessions said: “There is no greater honour than to represent the people of Alabama in the greatest deliberative body in the world.

“I appreciate the full debate we’ve had and thank those afterwards who found sufficient confidence to cast their vote to confirm me as the next attorney general.

“I fully understand the august responsibility of this office.”
