Does the captioned phrase mean 'he is angry' or 'he is suppressing his anger'?

But while the president is deeply suspicious of Mr. Mueller, his anger is reserved for Mr. Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia inquiry, and especially for Mr. Comey. Mr. Trump was especially outraged by Mr. Comey’s admission last week that he had leaked a memo with details of his interactions with the president in hopes of spurring the appointment of a special counsel.

It means he is saving his anger for Mr. Sessions because he recused himseslf, and also for Mr. Comey, but not for Mr. Mueller. For him, he is just suspicious.
