As seems to be becoming a trend, yet another of the Trump administration’s former members is cashing in on a book deal detailing their time with the 45th President of the United States. And, once again, it appears as though the trash-talking will be front and center in the tome.
This time around it’s Bill Barr, the former Attorney General, who’s looking to make a name for himself by bashing the former Commander in Chief.
In his upcoming 600-page book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” Barr says he thinks Trump could’ve beaten Joe Biden in 2020 if he had “just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness,” according to the Wall Street Journal.Advertisement - story continues below
The conservative lawyer encouraged members of his party to consider “an impressive array of younger candidates” that he did not identify by name — who he believes shares Trump’s agenda but not his “erratic personal behavior,” the book says.
The former attorney general, who served from February 2019 to December 2020, wrote that the former president has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.”
Barr goes on to suggest that the GOP move away from Trump in the coming months, and particularly before the 2024 election.
Over the weekend, the former President won the CPAC 2024 straw poll in a landslide, suggesting that Barr’s suggestion will likely fall on deaf ears.
