Former US president Donald Trump gets endorsement from his opponent

The indictment-plagued former US president Donald Trump took a jibe at a person whom the Republican continuously criticised for being weak, and slow-moving.

The former Attorney General Bill Barr endorsed Donald Trump despite their disagreement, however, he believed that Joe Biden and Democrats are far greater than the former president.

“The Biden administration is in fact the greater threat to democracy,” the 72-year-old former AG told Fox News Saturday, calling them a “heavy-handed bunch of thugs”.

Last year, he told NBC News that “I had made clear that he strongly opposed Trump for the nomination and would not endorse him.”

The 77-year-old Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social Thursday: “Wow! Former AG Bill Barr, who let a lot of great people down by not investigating Voter Fraud in our Country, has just Endorsed me for President despite the fact that I called him ‘Weak, Slow Moving, Lethargic, Gutless, and Lazy’ [New York Post!].”

“Based on the fact that I greatly appreciate his wholehearted Endorsement, I am removing the word ‘Lethargic’ from my statement. Thank you Bill,” the Republican presumptive nominee said.

Barr worked as AG for the final two years of Trump. He was criticised when he did not support Trump’s claims of 2020 election fraud.
