During a recent interview with NBC News, former Attorney General Bill Barr voiced his fervent opposition to former President Trump running for re-election in 2024. Barr served as AG under the Trump administration, following the resignation of then-AG Jeff Sessions in 2018.
Should Trump end up receiving the nomination for the Republican Party in 2024, Barr promised to jump off a bridge.
NBC also tried contacting 44 individuals who previously served in Trump’s Cabinet. Only four of these individuals publicly supported and endorsed Trump’s re-election.
The individuals who supported Trump’s re-election bid include former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, former budget chief Russell Vought, former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Curiously, two former officials in the Trump administration are challenging him in the Republican primary. These include former Vice President Mike Pence and former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
Dan Coats, the former director of National Intelligence under the Trump administration, revealed he is supporting Pence’s presidential bid.
Trump has a firm lead over his rivals in the Republican Party primary. He is polling above 52%. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is in a distant second place with 15.5%.
Other former Trump administration officials who have not supported Trump’s 2024 presidential bid include former Secretary of State and CIA Director Mike Pompeo, former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and former Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Thus far, in the Republican primary race for the presidency, there are 14 GOP candidates running against Trump. However, none of these candidates seem to have a credible chance of defeating him at the moment.
It perhaps will take Trump being sent to prison.
At this time, it remains to be seen how the GOP primary continues going forward and whether or not any candidates in this election see their poll numbers rise or fall.This article appeared in TheDailyBeat and has been published here with permission.
