The news outlet reported that the "friction" between the president and his attorney general stems from Sessions' March decision to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian election meddling and all campaign-related inquiries.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered to resign in recent weeks as he told President Trump he needed the freedom to do his job, according to two people who were briefed on the discussion.
Spicer last month declined to say whether Trump had confidence in his FBI Director James Comey hours before Comey was suddenly fired. On Tuesday, press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters, "I have not had a discussion with him about that".
According to the ABC report, Trump remains so angry with Sessions over the latter's decision to recuse himself from all matters related to ongoing investigations into Trump's widely rumored ties with Russian Federation that he "lashed out repeatedly at the attorney general in private meetings".
Trump learned of the attorney general's decision shortly before Sessions announced it at a news conference.
Sessions remains at the Justice Department, where a spokeswoman told CNN that he is not stepping down.
Department of Justice spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores only stated that she declined to comment.
Sessions was one of the administration officials who later aided Trump in firing Comey, seemingly violating the prior terms of his recusal. Sessions was the first senator to publicly endorse Trump and has been one of his most loyal backers. And Sessions' own team has become a part of Trump's inner circle: former Sessions chief of staff Rick Dearborn is now Trump's deputy chief of staff, and former Sessions spokesman Stephen Miller has evolved into a highly influential figure as Trump's policy director and speechwriter. Comey also reportedly warned Sessions that he did not want to be left alone with Trump after the two met privately and Trump urged Comey to drop the investigation into ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
On Monday, the New York Times reported that Trump had begun blaming Sessions for the mounting troubles his administration has faced on a near-daily basis since he assumed office earlier this year.
