These two are more divided than ever before.

Former Attorney General Bill Barr has revealed that in the last conversation he had with former President Donald Trump before the 2020 election, the two men had a heated exchange causing them not to speak again for weeks.

The omission is written in “One Damn Thing After Another” Barr’s upcoming book.

In the book, Barr details the event in October 2020, when Trump called him after a Newsmax segment about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The report centered around emails that could prove that Joe Biden was connected to his son’s business dealings while Joe Biden was Vice President.

According to the book’s retelling, on the call, Trump asked Barr, “You know this stuff from Hunter Biden’s laptop?”

To which Barr says he replied “sharply,” saying, “Mr. President, I can’t talk about that, and I am not going to.”

At the time of the call, Hunter Biden was under investigation, and the former Attorney General wasn’t going to discuss the case with Trump. In the book, Barr alleges Trump wasn’t pleased with his tone.

According to the book, Trump stated, “You know, if that was one of my kids,” before being cut off by Barr, who responded in a raised voice, “Dammit, Mr. President, I am not going to talk to you about Hunter Biden. Period!”

Barr writes that after a brief silence, Trump ends the phone call, and Will Levi, Barr’s chief of staff at the time, who was also in the room when the call took place, looked on alarmed.

Levi asked, “You yelled at the President?” Barr confirms with a nod.

Barr notes later in the book that he heard the former President was upset with him because he did not refute a claim made by current President Joe Biden that stated the emails on the laptop were potentially part of a disinformation campaign by Russia.

Barr also claims the statement by Biden was a “bogus statement” and “deception” from Biden that the media ran with.

Barr would also reveal in the book that despite having attended a “watch party” at the White House on election night, he and the former President had no direct communication until almost three weeks after the election.
