During an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham of the Ingraham Angle, Attorney General Bill Barr said Americans have been “patient,” with the coronavirus restrictions, and that he’d like to see an end to the “draconian measures that have been adopted” in America over the coronavirus pandemic. AG Barr told Ingraham that he’d like to see the restrictions lifted by the end of the month.
Barr said Americans will need to deal with our new reality adding, “We have to be very careful to make sure this, that the draconian measures that are being adopted are fully justified, and there are not alternative ways of protecting people.”
Barr added, “When this period of time, at the end of April, expires, I think we have to allow people to adapt more than we have.” Barr added that he’s not comfortable with telling Americans to “go home and hide under their bed,” and allow them the freedom to make their own decisions, including social distancing, to protect themselves.
