As Trump Storms Alabama, Senator Jeff Sessions Dons Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions showed up to support Donald Trump at his massive, 40,000 supporter rally on Friday and even wore one of Trump’s new signature “Make America Great Again” ball caps as the crowd cheered.

The visit by Senator Sessions to the Trump rally was a complete surprise to the participants… AND the GOP establishment!

The appearance by Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions at the Trump rally was a surprise. While the Republican senator didn’t explicitly endorse Trump’s presidential bid at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles stadium, his appearance and brief remarks could go a long way with conservatives who care deeply about the issue of illegal immigration.

Near the beginning of the speech, Trump praised Sessions, who advised the New York businessman on his recent proposal to curb illegal immigration, and invited him on stage.

“I will say this,” Trump said, “we have a great politician here. We have a man here who really helped me…because he’s been spot on, he’s so highly respected. Has anybody ever heard of Sen. Jeff Sessions?”

“Jeff, come up,” Trump said as the crowd roared. “Get over here Jeff…unbelievable guy.”

Taking the microphone, Sessions said: “The American people, these people, want somebody in the presidency who stands up for them, defends their interests and the laws and traditions of this country.”

“We welcome you here,” the senator added. “Thank you for the work you’ve put into the immigration issue. I’m really impressed with your plan. And I know it will make a difference, and this crowd shows a lot of people agree with that.”

It was pretty amazing that Senator Sessions appeared at this event. It certainly shocked the GOP establishment!
