William Barr, Trump’s Representative for the latter part of his first term, turned on Trump, the man who put him in the position of greatest power he could possibly have.
News of that came from the Wall Street Journal, report that Barr, in his new book, criticizes Trump and claims he lacks the necessary leadership qualities. In the words of the WSJ:
Attorney General William Barr writes in a new book that former President Donald Trump has “shown he neither has the temperament nor the persuasive power to provide the kind of positive leadership needed” and that the time has come. Republicans focus on emerging leaders. in the party.
The release of the former attorney general’s 600-page book, “One damn thing after another,” comes as Mr. Trump, who remains the dominant figure of the GOP, is contemplating another presidential run. . Mr. Barr wrote that he was confident that Mr. Trump could win re-election in 2020 if he “exercises only self-restraint, tempering even the slightest bit of his pettiness”.
More, WSJ reports Barr contradicted Trump’s claims about voter fraud in 2022, saying the real issue was Trump’s character and behavior, not cheating:
“The election was not stolen,” Barr wrote. “Trump lost it.” Mr Barr urged conservatives to look to “an impressive array of young candidates” who share Mr. Trump’s agenda, not his “erratic personal behaviour”. He did not mention any of those candidates by name.
Trump, who did not comment on Barr’s analysis of his leadership skills, strong suggestion at CPAC 2022 which he will run again in 2024, saying:
“We’ve done it twice, and we’ll do it again. They will find the hard way, starting on November 8 and then again, even more in November 2024. They will find out more than ever. We have done it twice and we will do it again. We will do it again. Third time.”
That could be welcome news for the crowd, which, when polled, indicated they wanted him to run more than any other challenger, with 59% of CPAC 2022 attendees already being poll. speech They want Trump’s ticket to 2024, and 97% say they approve of the job he’s done as president.
So try as Barr can to keep conservatives away from Trump, it seems unlikely; he can still muster enthusiasm like no other and is one of the few proven enemies of the Deep State.
Furthermore, it is unclear how much sobering political analysis Barr’s book is and how much of it was motivated by his controversial final weeks in the White House.
Like the New York Post reportTrump, in one of his last meetings with Barr “highlighted a number of grievances he had against Barr, including his refusal to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey.”‘Has been approved! Leave and do not return to your office. You are done now. Go home!‘”
In the end, the feud between the two, one that revolves around voter fraud, could mean that Barr is mad at Trump and doesn’t want to see him win again.
