Former AG Bill Barr Says He Will Jump Off Bridge If Trump Wins Republican Primary
Former AG Bill Barr made it very clear he’s not supporting Trump for the GOP presidential nomination.
In Barr’s latest interview with NBC the former AG stated “I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump.”
He then went as far as to say he would “jump off a bridge” before seeing Trump face Biden in a general election.
NEW: Former Attorney General Bill Barr says he will ‘jump off’ a bridge if Donald Trump wins 2024 GOP primaries.
“I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump,” Barr said.

Here’s what The Hill reported:
Former Attorney General Bill Barr said that he opposes former President Trump getting the GOP nomination but declined whether to say he would support him in the general election if pitted against President Biden.
“I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump,” Barr told NBC News for a poll. When asked how he would vote if Trump faced Biden in the general election, Barr said, “I’ll jump off that bridge when I get to it.”
The NBC News poll reached out to 44 former members of Trump’s administration to ask whether they would support Trump’s third bid to the White House. Most did not respond, and just four, including his former chief of staff Mark Meadows, said they would support him during the 2024 presidential election.
Barr has been a strong critic of the former president over the past year and has been one of several former Trump administration officials who have broken with the former president over a federal indictment that includes 40 charges of mishandling classified documents and obstruction of justice. Barr said last month that Trump was a “consummate narcissist,” adding that the former president regularly “engages in reckless conduct.”

Check out what the Daily Mail reported:
Only four of the once-Cabinet members for former President Donald Trump publicly said they would support his reelection in 2024, according to a new report.
Several strongly oppose his campaign, some are even working against his bid to become the GOP nominee and many didn’t respond to requests to comment on his efforts.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr has some of those most harsh words for his ex-boss, telling NBC News: ‘I have made clear that I strongly oppose Trump for the nomination and will not endorse Trump.’
‘I’ll jump off that bridge when I get to it,’ he added when asked how he would vote in the general election if it ends up being a 2020 rematch of Trump vs. President Joe Biden.
Former Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said: ‘If anyone can lose to Joe Biden, it would be him.’
