Johnnie Moore receives "medal of valor" from the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Johnnie Moore, an evangelical communications executive and Commissioner with the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, explained to The Atlantic that Sessions was unpopular among many Trump-supporting evangelicals. 

"[There was] widespread dissatisfaction across the board from the conservative, evangelical elements of Trump's base who believed Sessions to be weak and ineffective," Moore told the Atlantic. 

Moore added that he believed Sessions offended the "more moderate end of [Trump's] evangelical base, who were dissatisfied with some of his enforcement actions, his visceral opposition to criminal-justice reform, and the tactics he supported for handling illegal immigration."
