Bill Barr says Trump should not run for re-election in 2024: Ex-AG says Republicans can’t keep talking about last election and calls for ‘civil war’ for party to achieve ‘new era just like Reagan did’
- The former attorney general said the presidential election in 2024 requires a Republican who can usher in a new era as Ronald Reagan did in 1980.
- He said focusing on the 2020 elections is not a winning strategy
- If you believe in the MAGA agenda, we’ve already punched the other guy in the nose. Now, how can we actually take back the United States systematically?

Donald Trump’s attorney general, Bill Barr, has said his former boss is not up to the task of winning the ‘transformative’ 2024 election and should not run for president again.
The former attorney general said the 2024 presidential election requires a Republican who can usher in a new era as Ronald Reagan did in 1980, and said focusing on the 2020 election is not a winning strategy.
I’m all for a new era. That’s all I mean, is restore the greatness of this country. The main danger is this progressive agenda. The only way to do that is not to talk about another election and continue this trench warfare, but instead, elections that make progress will create and usher in an era just like Reagan did. Washington Examiner.
He added, “I don’t necessarily want to stand up to Trump, but Trump is not that guy.”
If you believe in the MAGA agenda, we’ve already punched the other guy in the nose. Now, how can we actually take back the United States systematically? Barr wondered.
Donald Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr says his former boss is not up to the task of winning the ‘transformative’ 2024 election and should not run for president again
Barr, a longtime Trump aide, said his former boss fired him on the spot when he objected to Trump’s allegations of election fraud.
Barr said the Republicans need a broad and decisive victory. “And you don’t do it by starting a civil war within the party and naming everyone who doesn’t think the election was stolen a RINO.”
The interview did not address who Barr felt was best suited to run as a challenger to the Republican Party.
Recent polls show that Republicans would prefer to see Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over Trump at the top of the list.
A recent poll of Wisconsin Republican convention goers shows that more Republicans want DeSantis to be the nominee than Trump.
Looking at a potential field for 2024, 38 percent of convention goers wanted DeSantis, 32 percent favored Trump and 7 percent wanted former UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
Unwilling to commit to challenging a former president, potential 2024 contenders have so far been stuck in limbo waiting for Trump to become publicly committed one way or the other on whether he will run. Trump has been testing his status as “kingmaker” within the party during a series of spring primary races that pitted Trump-backed candidates against a number of his incumbent opponents who refused to deny the results of the 2020 election.
The country’s former top law enforcement official also said he believed Trump could easily win the 2020 election with “only a slight modification of his behavior.”
Barr, a longtime Trump aide, said his former boss promptly fired him when he objected to Trump’s allegations of election fraud.
Barr has been promoting his recently released memoir, One Thing After Another: Memoirs of a Prosecutor, for months.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Barr touched on such wide-ranging topics as how he found society through sack bags and being forced by his parents to drink a glass of Guinness every day when he was a child.
I was a scrawny, picky eater who was walking to kindergarten one day, collapsed, and passed out. And so they transferred me to St. Luke’s Hospital, which is on New York’s Upper West Side,” Barr said.
However, Barr this week called the Russia investigation a “dirty hoax” and said there was “seditious activity” in explosive new comments while promoting a memoir in which he wrote that Trump “cared about only one thing: himself” during efforts to overturn the 2016 election. 2020. .
