Story highlights

  • "I'm an admirer of Steve Bannon and the Trump family and they've been supportive of what we're doing," Sessions said.
  • "I've not felt any pushback against me on anything I've done or advocated," Sessions added.

(CNN)Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday that he admires White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and that he hasn't received pushback from Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump on pushing his agenda.

Sessions was asked on the Laura Ingraham Show about reports Kushner and Ivanka Trump had more influence in the White House. Ingraham, citing reports, said Ivanka Trump and Kushner are trying to soften the President's rhetoric on immigration, unlike Bannon and former Sessions aide Stephen Miller.
"I'm an admirer of Steve Bannon and the Trump family and they've been supportive of what we're doing. I've not felt any pushback against me on anything I've done or advocated," Sessions said.
Sessions said he was committed toward ending "illegality" at the border.
Asked if anyone else shared his views on immigration in the West Wing, Session said the President did.
"He's still insisting we're gonna build this wall and he's not backing down from it. He's supported me and the Homeland Security in stepping up our enforcement at the border 100% and we're carrying out his agenda and I think that's shared throughout the White House," Sessions said. I don't believe anybody's going to object to that."
