A source familiar with the meeting described it as “intense”.
On Tuesday, Bar spent about two and a half hours at the White House on what White House and Justice Department officials had previously said was a pre-planned meeting with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
However, sources told ABC News that after Bar was in the meeting building, Trump wanted to see him.

White House spokeswoman Kaylee McEnnany declined to say at a press briefing Wednesday afternoon whether the two spoke after Bar’s interview, and also declined to say directly whether Trump still trusted Bar.
In an interview with the AP, Bar directly directly undermines allegations made by Trump and his legal team, as well as by the president’s allies, that Trump would have won the election had it not been for the widespread fraud.
“To date, we have not seen any fraud on a scale that could have led to a different election result,” Bar told the AP.
Shortly after Bar left the White House on Tuesday, a DOJ spokesman sent a statement to reporters in response to what the official described as inaccurate characteristics of some of the media about Barr’s comments.
“Some media outlets have reported incorrectly that the ministry has completed its investigation into election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no election fraud,” the spokesman said. “This is not what the Associated Press reports, nor what the Attorney General said. The ministry will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as soon as possible.”
Sources claim that the president has privately expressed his anger at Bar and even released the opportunity to remove it. These allegations were first reported by the Washington Post.
The White House did not immediately respond to ABC News’s request for comment. A spokesman for the Ministry of Justice declined to comment further.
