Former Attorney General Bill Barr described it as a "horror show" when former President Donald Trump is "left to his own devices."
Barr — who served as attorney general during a portion of Trump's tenure after previously holding the post during a portion of George H.W. Bush's presidency — made the comment at an event in Cleveland, Ohio, after Geraldo Rivera asked whether Trump is fit to serve as president.
Barr responded by saying that for those who believe in the policies Trump espouses, the former president is "the last person who could actually execute them and achieve them." Barr claimed that Trump lacks the "discipline," the capacity for "linear thinking or setting priorities, ah, or how to get things done in the system. It is a horror show ... when he's left to his own devices," Barr asserted.
Barr continued, "You may want his policies. But Trump will not deliver Trump policies. He will deliver chaos, and, if anything lead to a backlash that will set his policies much further back than they otherwise would be."
Trump is running for president again, but Barr noted that he is "adamantly against Trump." Barr said that he thinks it would be a "tragedy" for the former president to become the GOP nominee.

Several Republican figures have already launched presidential bids, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has not announced a bid, is widely viewed as someone who may soon throw his hat into the ring.
"The problem with Ron DeSanctimonious is that he needs a Personality Transplant, and those are not yet available," Trump wrote in a Truth Social post, referring to DeSantis. "I would say that, when it comes to lack of Personality, Ron would be in a class with Asa Hutchinson, and that’s not good," Trump wrote, referring to former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is also running for president.
