Barr Says He Would Vote Trump in 2024: 'Democrats Are America's Greatest Threat'
'It’s inconceivable to me that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee'
Former Attorney General William Barr said he would vote for President Donald Trump in 2024, despite recent claims that Trump was “dangerous” before he left office.
Barr said on NBC’s “Today:”
“I believe that the greatest threat to the country is the progressive agenda being pushed by the Democratic Party.
“It’s inconceivable to me that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee.”
Barr told host Savannah Guthrie that he doesn’t believe Trump should be the party’s nominee.
“I’m going to … support somebody else for the nomination,” Barr said.
Barr’s book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” is being released Tuesday.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Barr writes that Trump has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.”
Barr goes on to say that Trump could have won the 2020 election if he had “just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness.”
“He was beyond restraint,” Mr. Barr writes.
Trump blasted Barr in a letter to NBC News anchor Lester Holt over the weekend.
"I made many great appointments during my administration, and we accomplished more than most administrations could even dream of, but Bill Barr was not one of my better picks,” the former president wrote.
"He crumbled under the pressure and bowed to the Radical Left — and that is no[t] acceptable.
"Now he is groveling for the media, hoping to gain acceptance that he doesn’t deserve.”
Trump said in a statement last week that the former attorney general had failed to pursue obvious election fraud.
“Former Attorney General Bill Barr wouldn’t know voter fraud if it was staring him in the face — and it was,” Trump said.
Last week, Barr discussed his interaction with then-President Donald Trump leading up to his 2020 resignation.
“I told him that all this stuff was bullsh*t about election fraud.”
“And, you know, it was wrong to be shoveling it out the way his team was,” Barr said.
“And he started asking me about different theories.”
“And I had the answers.”
“I was able to tell him, ‘This is wrong because of this,’” he added.
