During an event at the White House, Trump ignored a shouted question about whether Sessions should step down.
On July 19, Trump asserted that he would not have appointed Sessions had he known that the attorney general would recuse himself from the federal probe into his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation.
Sanders, who's previously said that Trump retains full confidence in Sessions, said on Tuesday that firing the attorney-general was a decision Trump could still make.
"Loyalty is a two-way street", he said.
But, what Trump is doing to Sessions is more embarrassing for the former than the latter.

If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, 'Thanks, Jeff, but I can't, you know, I'm not going to take you.' It's extremely unfair, and that's a mild word, to the president.
But now, at its most critical moment, the Republican senators - most notably McConnell - haven't been willing to spend any political capital in Sessions's defense. He believes Session's actions led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller - a development with potentially dire implications for him, his family, and their vast businesses.
The president is still angry with Sessions, a long-time political supporter, for recusing himself from the federal investigation into whether Trump associates colluded with Russians who sought to interfere in last year's election.
What is clear is that McConnell, and the attorney general's fellow former Senate colleagues, have not come to Sessions's defense.
Still, it appears Trump's treatment of his attorney general may not be enough to lose him support in the Senate. "It's beyond insane. It's cruel and it's insane and it's stupid".
Mr Trump has reportedly seethed about that decision for months, viewing it as disloyal and resenting that the Attorney-General did not give the White House a proper heads-up before making the announcement.
