Former Attorney General William Barr said Monday he would vote for Donald Trump if he is the 2024 Republican presidential nominee despite harshly criticizing him in his upcoming memoir.
Barr, appearing on NBC’s Today, said he will vote for the Republican nominee in 2024, even if it is Trump, even though admitting the former president “went off the rails” following his 2020 election loss.
“I certainly have made it clear I don’t think [Trump] should be our nominee, and I’m going to support somebody else for the nomination,” Barr said in the interview.
But, he added, “because 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.”
I think this quote perfectly summarizes why all effort to persuade so many evangelicals and conservatives of Donald Trump’s corruption and unfitness is, in the end, a complete waste of time. No one better understands what a total horror show Trump was as president than Bill Barr. And yet he admits that if Trump somehow gets the nomination in 2024, he would vote for him again.
Well put, Jay.
