‘Feds have no legal role in porn’: Attorney General Jeff Sessions says no to porn in US

Attorney General and senior member of the Trump administration Jeff Sessions said on Thursday he would not enforce a federal law that prohibits the production, distribution, or possession of legal adult entertainment content.

“The federal government has no role in regulating porn,” Mr Sessions said during a press conference in New York.

“If the federal government wanted to regulate it, they could do it.”

Mr Sessions added that he had never had any conversation with anyone in the Obama administration regarding regulating pornography.

Mr Sessions also said the Federal Communications Commission would continue to make regulations.

“We have no role,” he said.

“I have a responsibility to do my job.”

Mr Trump, who was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, also announced the US would end the prohibition on alcohol, which was in place since 1933.

“After four years of a President who promised change, America’s leaders have achieved a new standard of leadership,” he told the crowd in New Jersey.

Mr Trump also said he had not spoken to former president Barack Obama, who has repeatedly been critical of Mr Sessions, saying that he has no respect for his leadership.

“As you know, I did not meet with the president of Russia or any Russian leader,” Mr Trump said.

Mr Obama and Mr Trump also have been at odds over the past few months.

In a recent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Mr Trump claimed Mr Obama had called him on a number of occasions.

“They didn’t call me.

They didn’t talk to me,” Mr Obama said.
