Bill Barr Says Trump Should Not Run for President

The United States Department of Justice / Public domain

Former Attorney General Bill Barr says Donald Trump’s time in the White House is done.

In a candid interview with The Washington Examiner, Barr made it clear that he thinks it’s time for the Republican Party to start looking forward to a new candidate in 2024.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“I’m all for restoring America . That’s what I’m all about, is restoring the greatness of this country. And the principle threat is this progressive agenda. The only way to do that is not to speak about some other election and continue this trench warfare but instead a breakthrough election that will create and usher in an era just like Reagan did,” said Barr in an interview with the Washington Examiner.

“I don’t necessarily want to take a shot at Trump, but Trump is not that man,” he said, adding that the former president would be a 78-year-old lame duck the day he walked into office.

“He does not have the capacity to win the kind of transformative election. He may have been, historically, a necessary figure, and I give him all credit for bringing to a screeching halt the progressive march that occurred under the Obama administration and threatened the country going forward with Hillary Clinton,” said Barr.

Barr also acknowledged that many of Trump’s specific traits are what made him the man to do that. The former AG said that Trump’s willingness to fight and his pugnacity helped make him such a successful president.

“However, if you believe in the MAGA agenda, we’ve already punched the other guy in the nose. Now, how do we actually go about methodically restoring the United States?” Barr said. The first thing Republicans need to do, added Barr, is win a decisive, broad victory. “And you don’t do that by starting a civil war in the party and calling everyone who doesn’t believe that the election was stolen a RINO.”

Barr also went on to say he firmly believed Trump could have handily won the 2020 election had he slightly adjusted his behavior heading into the race.

Is Trump the right man for the Republican Party in 2024 or is another Republican darkhorse who will help get this country back on track?

I think Barr shouldn’t run for anything in my mind he is a traitor to all America. Go TRUMP – We had a good life under Trump, now we are being destroyed from within with all the wimpy Republicans standing behind Biden – What fools and betrayers – no fight and no honor.

You are correct. Bill Barr was a Bush plant and stymied President Trump on everything he could. He hates President Trump, and is now trying to be relevant. He needs to shut his pie-hole and go away because no one except other RINOs and Democrats want to hear him.

Whatever the GOP puts up it cannot be a Boehner or Ryan type that folds like cheap paper when confronting the leftists. If no one who is electable in the GOP ranks cannot continue the approach Trump demonstrated successfully then it must be Trump again. We cannot continue to make the mistakes of putting people like Liz Chaney in Washington, especially at the presidential level. If DeSantis is the man then Trump must be involved and part of the effort. We cannot afford conservative a civil war.

Desantis MUST REMAIN TO BE THE GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA. Trump needs to return to the presidency. His policies are pragmatic and will save America. He needed to call attention to the fraud that occurred in ‘2020. It cannot continue or this country is LOST.

I agree with you but I also agree with Barr that “Trump could have handily won in 2020 if he had slightly adjusted his behavior”. Too many white suburban woman couldn’t stand Trump’s personality and he played right into the media’s hand by constantly fighting.
If Trump is the 2024 nominee I will vote for him for the 3rd time but I fear he could lose again because he has ignited the young college aged idiots who will never vote for him.

It doesn’t take Trump to tell me the election was stolen. I saw the fraud when Obama was elected. BUT, stealing from Trump was done on an unblievable massive scale and anyone who doesn’t see it hasn’t bothered to look closer at the testimony available, but ignored by the justice system, including Bill Barr who denied the theft while refusing to look at the sworn testimonies presented.

The GOP first has to revoke the new Democrat election plan proposed and soon to be pushed through before they all get booted out in 4 months. We can’t have the Feds running our elections. Also, the GOP needs to be more “grass roots” local politics and stop letting the local DNC run elections in most states, even red ones. The DNC wins a lot because they run the elections, and they follow Stalin’s edict: “Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.”..that was very clear in the last presidential. It is still happening. Look at Mich. where they are blocking GOP candidates from even being on the ballot. If the Left is not stopped our elections will look like Russia’s. Only one guy on the ballot and you can vote for the democrat of your choice. That is democracy in Russia.

The header is quite misleading as I don’t see this a backstabbing move but a statement of opinion. He gave credit where credit is due and stated the negative where needed. I think Barr was fair in his personal assessment as he sees it, however, I disagree with him as far as Trump running in 2024. I’ve said it to many in 2016 that this country needs to be run like a business and not a charitable organization with corrupt politicians at the helm. I think Trump should run and I think everyone has seen the Democrats agenda and what they’re doing to our country and realize that no one can afford it. I think Trump would undo and fix the Democrats stupidity and quickly. I think he would get a lot more support in congress this time around because they’ve seen the errors of their ways.

Everything out of Bart’s mouth is BS. He wrote a book bashing Trump and sales may not be going as planned. As for Congress supporting Trump, there are still snakes (RINO’s) like Romney, McConnell, Graham and others who support open borders, amnesty for illegals, and repeal of the 2nd Amendment. They are already wheeling and dealing with Schumer’s henchmen to take away guns. I don’t trust any Republican who supports McConnell for senate leader if they win back congress. As for Barr—if he did his job instead of listening to his buddy Bush, President Magoo would not be in the White House. All democrats and RINO’s have to go.

I agree with you and he gave credit where is do. Problem is now he’s starting to sound logical, but where was that logic when he was in position to stop election fraud and crime in the government. Nowhere he was silent and useless. Now he’s trying to make himself look righteous. Give me a break. Then again maybe at that level in government everyone is compromised so who am I to judge.

How can he think he will be taken seriously by any non-rino? He has already proven himself a traitor. He thinks we’re going to have a “breakthrough election”? Not if nothing is done to expose the 2020 election fraud. Logic tells you they will not only do the same, but double their efforts. Too many conservatives no longer believe in the republican party; I am not at all excited to see them back in power. Let the rinos know that we are still angry with them, even if it means a civil war within the party. It’s so dumb to assume that just cuz the repubs take over, they will actually do the things that president trump did; no, we are going to require mr trump to go back in and continue the work he started, accomplishing what he did despite the wall of resistance he got.

The issue is that PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF failed in your duty to arrest and convict those that were intent on overthrowing a legally elected President and ending the policies that the PEOPLE DEMANDED at his election.

No! I don’t care what RINO’s say. Trump was overwhelmingly voted for in last 2 elections. His behavior is designed to wake up the sleepy steeple as he exposed the evil empire deep state tgat by election fraud coup have taken over the government of US and installed their satanic worshipful luciferian Nazi commie puppets.

Trump has been a sting ips from the get go. Whether or not Barr is on board or playing both sides against the middle on the fence, his career is OVER! But not ztrumps Presidency. The people love his brash acting truth telling stand against the enemies of the people. Trump played the lightening rod that grounded the people and shocked the deep state into total chaos and frenzied panic. They will no doubt pull out all the stops as trump foibles down on them.

I could have agreed with Barr right up to the point where he said “he firmly believed Trump could have handily won the 2020 election had he slightly adjusted his behavior heading into the race”. WRONG. Barr and so many others still don’t get it. Trump lost because of Liberal judges in swings states refusing to do their sworn constitutional job and that is to hold up the rule of law. They refused to even listen to the voter fraud testimonies for legal considerations. They were all bought with Zucker and swamp money. Trump didn’t need to change anything. He won the election fairly. Those that represent as being true patriots both Democrats and Republicans need to be frightened as to what just happened during the 2020 election and that needs to be flushed out. I believe it will someday, sooner or later, and the opposing side should be ashamed to have allowed this to happen as the world watched the corruption coming from the leader of the free world. Money, power, greed changes the best of people. We don’t need an attitude change from “45”. We need a fair election without corruption. We run the risk of the same corruption now in Nov. 2022 and beyond if we don’t understand what happened with the Judges and the legal system that was suppose to serve the public, not ANY political persuasion. Don’t “throw the towel in” is so fast Mr. Bill Barr until you can assure the masses that the 2024 nominee would not get the same treatment as 2020.
