Barr Endorses Trump

Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr announced this week that he would be supporting former President Donald Trump for the White House just months after sharp criticism of his former boss. During Barr’s comments he also significantly criticized President Joe Biden, whose tenure Barr cited in making his decision of who to support.

Barr said that it was his “duty to pick the person who I think would do the least damage to the country. And I think Trump would do less damage than Biden.”

“I think all this stuff about a threat to democracy, I think the real threat to democracy is the progressive movement and the Biden administration,” he said.

The former attorney general said that Americans’ freedoms were “being constrained by the progressive government.”

He also said that the “threat to freedom and democracy has always been on the Left. It’s the collectivist, socialist agenda. And that is where we’re losing our freedom.”

Trump reacted to Barr’s endorsement writing that Barr, who he said “who let a lot of great people down” had “just Endorsed me for President despite the fact that I called him “Weak, Slow Moving, Lethargic, Gutless and Lazy” (New York Post!).”

“Based on the fact that I greatly appreciate his wholehearted Endorsement, I am removing the word “Lethargic” from my statement. Thank you Bill. MAGA2024!” wrote Trump.

Following Trumps’ comments, Barr was asked about his impression. The former attorney general said that neither Trump nor Biden should be president but if he had to choose between the two, he would select Trump.

Barr previously criticized the ongoing criminal case against the former president, calling it a “real threat” to the country’s democratic system.

Barr said that the New York case against Trump stemming from an alleged brief relationship with former adult actress Stormy Daniels was an “abomination.”

“It’s obviously political. Seven years after he pays hush money to try to come up with this case. It’s also, as you say, it’s not only far-fetched… they’re trying to predicate it on a federal crime which wasn’t prosecuted,” said Barr.
