I like Sessions a lot; I think he's a dedicated public servant with a true moral compass. I think he's a good person who does what he thinks is right.

But the recusal thing just put him at odds with Trump from the beginning and there was never a good way for him to work his way back into Trump's good graces. And while I think Trump bullied the guy, generally unfairly, Trump does have the right to work with an AG he wants to work with.

I really wish they'd have found a way to make that relationship work better. It would've required more emotional maturity than Trump has demonstrated to this point and perhaps a little more political savvy or willingness to just play the game than Sessions showed, but it could've been done.
I don't get why you put any of this on Trump.

"RUSSIA!!!" started before Sessions took his spot. He should have never accepted the post without being certain that he wouldn't do something as stupid as recusing himself from the first probe on the list. And, once he did put the president in the position of having an impotent AG to start his term, he should have immediately apologized and resigned. By staying on, he completely screwed Trump, who was not in a strong enough position at the start to just jettison Sessions without there being an internal Republican uprising.

If we're looking to blame Trump for personnel isues, we've got plenty of ammo. Blame him for bringing Amarosa into the White House, for example. That was always a disaster waiting to happen.
