Line break in blockquote widget

How can I do linebreaks inside a blockquote?

<br> should work if not please let us know

Does not.

In the frontend, blockquote widget seems to strip all html whether I try <br /> or <p>

Yeap, that is true, the blockquote widget doesn’t allow HTML.

So how do I get linebreaks?

Carriage returns are stored in database and shown in backend but not respected in frontend.
