1) I hoped that Republicans were right when they said that Trump would surround himself with the best people. They were wrong (as I thought they would be), thus my opinion of him went even further down.

2) I didn't really know who Sessions was on Election day, now that I've researched him a bit more I really do not like him whatsoever

3) On election day I didn't really like him but then after the election was so close I see him as part of the reason Clinton lost.

It wasn't Sanders why she lost he campaigned vigorously for her. Maybe Hillary should've visited Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania more. Alot of people just didn't want to vote, the voter turnout decreased, the reason Clinton lost is herself and the DNC lying and cheating time and again, until that lesson is learned prepare for a second term of Trump, ? much to my displeasure.

I Really didn't like from the start, but he's proven worse than my worst fears, making blunder after blunder, and scandal after scandal, which he tries to knock off the headlines by doing something dumb, which worked while campaigning but unfortunately, it is our nation being hurt.

I don't like his appointments, They are too Jewish. Especially Kushner and Ivanka are hurting him. His Supreme Court nomination aswell as his travel ban has been promises that has been fulfilled and are positive. What awaits is the Wall which is disappointing if he doesn't get completed, but i don't really blame him with the current GOP leadership. On Obamacare i really hope he removes Obamacare and leaves health care to the free market or makes a single-payer system as the current system is a mix of Capitalism and Socialism which is an unsatisfactory model. On an end note it should be noted that not starting a war with Iran or Russia is a prize for itself, because a GOP neocon or Hillary Clinton surely would not have been reluctant to attack.

1. Slightly higher, though there has been the occasional disappointment, specifically in organization and communication in the White House

2. I like Sessions generally, but feel he's not been aggressive enough in prosecuting Clinton, Obama, Rice, et. al. and should never have recused himself from Russia.  I also disagree strongly with his war on drugs stance.

3. I should qualify my answer by saying that it's not possible for my opinion to go much lower :P

I partially agree in that I think he's getting bad advice from close advisors and the communication needs work (which moved me from "much higher" to "slightly higher"), but I'm largely happy with most of his appointments in the cabinet.

Elaine Chao is great (unlike her husband), Nikki Haley is good (honestly I wish she was at State), and Mattis and Acosta seem fine, but I have issues with Mnuchin, Tillerson, Perry, Ross, DeVos, Carson, Perdue, Price, Pruitt, and Sessions. I have mixed feelings regarding Kelly. The rest (not many left) are OK, I guess. This is all my opinion, of course.

I'll definitely agree on Chao's husband, even if it may be for different reasons than you.  Sessions has gone down in my mind recently with his inability to control the Mueller investigation, war on drugs stance, and now he's trying to re-instate asset forfeiture.

Same.  I wish he would listen to his cabinet more than his advisors.  I don't like him having Kuschner in as an advisor.  But, he has some solid people in his cabinet.

I don't know where to put these opinions, exactly, on the qualitive scales, so I'll explain my opinion.

1. Trump is NOT qualified to be the U.S. President. He is not a leader. He has a very skewed view of economics, and his view and understanding of laws and diplomatic is even worse. Americans should be embarrassed by him, and it dismays me there are less that feel such embarrassment than there should be. He's not even nearly as good a businessman as he claims to be, if you follow his record carefully, and all indications show he's even only a "sugar daddy" type of good lover. The only thing I'd say he's at, as a calling, is being a showman, and that's pretty much how he won the election.

2. Despite the Trump Administration's and Trump supporter fervent denials of blatantly obvious and available material from court records and his statements, Jeff Sessions is obviously a racist, and should NOT be in a position like Attorney General in the day and age. I can't see any good coming of it.

3. I liked many of Sanders' policies, but unfortunately, he would be a tremendous failure as U.S. President, because so many Americans, over a majority certainly, are bred, raised, and educated (even brainwashed, to a degree) to mindlessly, thoughtlessly, and unquestioningly hate every policy and ideal even remotely socialistic in nature, no matter how much benefit it might actually do the majority of the country, because few Americans are taught to distinguish AT ALL between moderate social democracy (like Sanders) and outright Communist (like in the USSR), which are VERY different from each other, and the myth that is constantly perpetuated of "top-down economic prosperity," that is, that all fiscal policies must always favour disproportionately and completely the desires of business and industry over the workers and consumer, often ignoring their needs and demands completely, because, as the myth goes, "the prosperity flows down only, never up."

Sessions is not a racist.  This is an accusation that is made by many on the left to smear him but not based in fact.  If he is such as racist, why would he cosponsor a bill to award Rosa Parks the Congressional Gold Medal?

Is he not a natural born citizen at least 35 years of age?

I really think the opposite is true.  Sanders's policies are horrible and would ruin our country.  Also as far as brainwashing, yes but they're being brainwashed to Progressivism, as our schools aren't teaching civics and the Constitution, and being taught about 75 genders and how white people are evil.  Academia (believe me, I've worked there) is left leaning, and if this were true, why are so many millennials in favor of socialism?

So Americans are supposed to feel embarrassed by him?  If that isn't the case, is it possible that your opinions have been colored by media and Academia?

Partly true but how does that disqualify him?  If personality quirks disqualified people from being President, there are many Presidents elected who shouldn't have been.  I don't want a "nice guy" as President, I want someone who can stand up to the Establishment.  What never-Trumpers can't seem to grasp, and I am speaking partly for myself here, is that many Trump voters chose him not in spite of his brashness, tough talk, and lack of "being Presidential", but directly because of it.  We need someone who can be a bull in the china shop and shake things up.  Despite some growing pains and some communication issues which I think are mainly due to being a political novice (again one of the main reasons he got elected), I think he's done a pretty good job so far given his lack of political experience and constant baseless attacks from the news media, Democrats, Washington bureaucracy, and even the establishment in his own party.  For that reason I think the approval rating here is very misleading.

You have the right to your opinion, but don't say "obviously." That's all been completely debunked and taken completely out of context.  Now I do have some issues with Jeff Sessions which I've gone into earlier, but that type of talk isn't helpful.  The Democratic party has a history of calling a racist Republicans, conservatives, and people who don't agree with their narrative.

When ironically, it is the Democratic Party that has always embodied the most racist tendencies and does to this day.

1. Hated Trump during the election, and still hate him now. He's done a couple good things for the country, but the vast majority of his actions have been bad. Plus, his terrible character has not improved from the election.

2. Never liked Sessions. Disagreed with both his character and his policies. I'd say my view of him has gotten worse since being appointed since he has started to put his policies into action (support of private prisons, war on drugs, immigration policies, etc). And now we are also seeing how he lied about his contacts with Russia. 

3. I strongly supported Sanders during the election and I still do now. I agree with him on most issues and I think he is an important voice in the senate.

Persons like you are the reasons politics are so polarized in the US. It is extreme to say that you hate another candidate.

By that logic you should have been embarrased by Rob Ford.

He was embarrassing, and I never liked. Fortunately, he was a mayor of a city I don't and never have lived in, and not the Canadian Prime Minister, so it wasn't as bad. But I did cringe when I heard him talk - as any SENSIBLE American when Trump talks (unfortunately, less do than really should). So, I anted up there, @NYrepublican. But I bet you didn't expect any accession there, but some contrived excuse of how Rob Ford was more good and virtuous, and less embarrassing, than Donald Trump, eh? :P

I was at Trump's inaugauration and not even the protesters did.

Inaugurations are rarely the hardcore firebrand, incendiary, worst, and most over-the-top public appearances of a controversial political figure, because they're much more scripted, ceremonial, and formal at heart. As extreme examples, even Hitler's inauguration as Chancellor in 1933, Mugabe's first inauguration as Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia (before he changed the position to President of Zimbabwe), George Wallace's inauguration as Governor of Alabama, and Hugo Chavez' original inauguration as President of Venezuela in 1999 (DISCLAIMER: These examples are all used as charismatic, fiery, incendiary charismatic populist politicians whose first inaugural ceremony was still bound by some aspects of their country's protocols and traditions and not to say the four examples and Donald Trump are being compared ideologically, in actual style of regime, or in actions in office directly). This means that, unlike being on the campaign trail, and seemingly after settling in the White House (after a transitional stay in the DC Trump Tower, if I recall), he can be expected to be on the closest thing to his 'best behaviour' we likely see him at during said inauguration ceremony.

Also, I want to make very clear another difference in this statement. I would not have voted for Rob Ford for Mayor if I lived in Toronto, and, if he had run for and achieved the Conservative Party of Canada leadership after Stephen Harper retired, as he had speculated about doing, instead of retiring from politics after his cancer diagnosis, I CERTAINLY would not have voted for him in 2019. Looking at your avatar, I'd say your opinion of voting for Trump had you been older would be very different, at a guess, unless your avatar is ironic..
