Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr suggested during a speech late last week that in a rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, he’ll back his former boss.

Barr, who has been critical of Trump since Trump left office in January 2021, made the remarks while speaking at a Forum Club of Southwest Florida lunch in Naples.

Barr has in the past held off on saying who he would support should Trump win the Republican Party presidential primary.

However, now that Trump is on the verge of officially wrapping up the primary, Barr said that even though Trump presents a risk to the country, Biden is far worse.

“Voting for Trump is playing Russian roulette with the country,” Barr said, according to a report from Axios. “Voting for Biden is outright national suicide.”

The former president faces numerous legal hurdles in between now and election day this November as he’s been indicted in four separate criminal cases and has experienced recent setbacks in civil courts that have cost him hundreds of millions of dollars — rulings that are being appealed.

Despite the challenges that he faces and the chaos that seemingly follows him, Trump maintains an advantage over Biden in the polls as voters overwhelming disapprove of how the president is handling many top issues facing the country, including the economy/inflation and the border/immigration.


Barr has been clear that he believes Trump is solely responsible for some of the trouble that he finds himself in, like in the federal case about his handling of classified material, while he has defended him in other criminal cases, like the hush money case from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the two election cases.

“I don’t like the idea of us putting former presidents in prison,” Barr said. “I hope this doesn’t end up with him in prison even if he is convicted.”
