What is Trump afraid of?

I find it more interesting that everything that happens with Trump's Inner Circle is conducted in secret, including phone calls to Putin.

His son goes to China and conducts a secret meeting with the Kushners to promise HB5 Visas in exchange for half a million US. His Attorney General Sessions goes to California and holds a secret meeting with White Supremacists and never clears up the incident with the American public.

Sessions did the right thing. He recused himself. Now, Trump wishes he never put Sessions in the job? Why? It is sounding more and more they are blood brothers in their belief systems and biases and the only conclusion that can be drawn is that he expects Sessions to at the very least bend the law in regard to Russia if not break it. Of course, Trump is above such things.

I think all this is a distraction from the facts.
