Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace said Friday that Attorney General Bill Barr was clearly protecting President Donald Trump.

Reacting to the attorney general's latest interview with Fox News host Bill Hemmer, Wallace noted the contrast between Barr and Trump's previous attorney general, Jeff Sessions.

"What really comes across to me most of all is that for two years Donald Trump sat there and said I don’t have an attorney general. I don’t have somebody out there looking for and protecting my interests. He clearly has that now with Bill Barr," Wallace said.

"Not saying that Barr isn’t right in everything he says. But he clearly is protecting this president and advocating his point of view on a lot of these issues. I suspect that President Trump, who probably has watched some of this interview himself, is saying finally no Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr instead."
