Bill Barr’s grim prediction about what will happen if Donald Trump wins

Bill Barr, who served as U.S. attorney general under former President Donald Trump, shared his dire predictions Thursday if his former boss takes over the White House.

Trump is currently among a large field of candidates for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, as part of his bid to win a second term in the Oval Office. He has consistently led the pack by a substantial margin, with national polling averages consistently giving him around 50% support from likely Republican voters, while his closest competitors, like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have struggled. struggling to maintain double-digit support.

Although many in the Republican Party pledged their support for the former president, others continued to speak out against him, including a notable number of his former White House staff, such as Barr. Once considered by some to be one of Trump’s staunchest allies, Barr has been an outspoken critic of the former president in recent months, frequently ridiculing him for his legal perils and re-election ambitions. In a May interview, the former attorney general said another Trump term would amount to a “horror show” and that Trump would “sow chaos” instead of policy.

Barr spoke at an event Thursday hosted by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, where he reiterated his concerns and dire predictions about a second Trump administration, saying Trump would be more interested in pursuing “reprisals”.

“He’s already saying it’s going to be about retaliation, and he’s a very petty man, and it’s all about him,” Barr said. “And he has a very fragile ego… Every time he meets, he has to show the other guy that he’s better, it’s all about asserting his ego. And I think he’ll be lenient in a new administration. It won’t be as effective as it otherwise would be, and things would likely start to move toward chaos.”

News week contacted Trump’s office via email for comment.

In the past, Trump representatives have dismissed Barr’s comments, with a spokesperson saying News week in response to May’s “horror show”, he simply comments: “Who?”

Trump himself, last May, chastised his former attorney general for, as he put it, “crumbling under pressure and bowing to the radical left.” This came in response to Barr calling Trump’s false claims about 2020 election fraud “bulls***.”

“Now he’s groveling in front of the media, hoping to get acceptance he doesn’t deserve,” Trump said at the time.
