Bill Barr Burns Bridge With Trump In New Book: “Donald Trump has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership needed”

Former Attorney General Bill Barr has a new book coming out soon and former President Donald Trump will not be happy with it. Trump has yet to fire back at Barr but you can expect a response after Barr came out against Trump running again and for the GOP finding new, younger leaders.

Barr’s book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” will be released on March 8. Barr writes that Trump “has shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers” of a leader.

“We need leaders not only capable of fighting and ‘punching,’ but also persuading and attracting — leaders who can frame, and advocate for, an uplifting vision of what it means to share in American citizenship,” Barr, wrote.

Barr wrote: “He stopped listening to his advisers, became manic and unreasonable, and was off the rails. He surrounded himself with sycophants, including many whack jobs from outside the government, who fed him a steady diet of comforting but unsupported conspiracy theories.”

“Donald Trump has shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed,” Barr added.

Barr writes, “The election was not ‘stolen. Trump lost it” before saying Trump’s election lies led to the Jan 6 but legally Trump did not ‘incite’ the riot.

Barr wrote, “The absurd lengths to which he took his ‘stolen election’ claim led to the rioting on Capitol Hill. Incitement has a legal definition, and Trump’s statements would not fit that definition in any American court.”

Barr also does not think Trump should run again writing the prospect is “dismaying” before urging the GOP to look to younger GOP leaders in 2024.

Barr says of Dec. 1 Oval Office meeting in which Trump ripped him for publicly saying he the election was clean.

“This is killing me, killing me. This is pulling the rug right out from under me,” Trump yelled at Barr. “You must hate Trump. You would only do this if you hate Trump.”

Barr fired back at Trump reminding him that he “sacrificed a lot personally to come in to help you when I thought you were being wronged,” by the Russia probe.

Barr writes that he offered to resign that day and Trump said:

“Accepted. Leave and don’t go back to your office. You are done right now. Go home!’” Trump changed his mind and Barr stayed on but left the administration soon after.

Of dismissing the charges against Mike Flynn Barr said:

“Predictably our motion to dismiss the charges led to an election-year media onslaught, flogging the old theme that I was doing this as a favor to Trump.

“But I concluded the handling of the Flynn matter by the FBI had been an abuse of power that no responsible AG could let stand,” he wrote.​

“I’m shocked, Bill. I’m disgusted. I’m not happy about this, Bill,” Trump said.

Barr wrote:

“People are worthwhile to Trump only as means to his ends — as utensils. When they don’t help him get what he wants, they are useless.

“In my case, Trump’s disenchantment started — as it was bound to — when he saw I was not willing to bend the law to do his bidding.:
