Jeff Sessions is now the Attorney General of the US.

The Senate confirmed Jeff Sessions as the next attorney general Wednesday in a 52-47 vote.

The confirmation followed a fierce battle between Republicans and Democrats and signals yet another win for President Trump.

In his farewell address Wednesday evening, Sessions urged his erstwhile colleagues to get along better following days of bruising debate.

“We need latitude in our relationships,” Sessions said. “Denigrating people who disagree with us is not a healthy trend for our body.”

Sessions became just the sixth Cabinet nominee approved by the Senate, joining Trump’s choices for Defense, Homeland Security, Education, Transportation and State.
