In a Q&A session on Twitter Friday, Attorney General William Barr said "It is time to start rolling back some of these restrictions in an orderly and sensible way and the president has provided his Opening the United States Again plan that provides a sensible approach, framework, to that."

Replying to a question about constitutional rights, Barr said:

"When this crisis first emerged, I think it was appropriate to have, initially, broad restrictions, because we didn't know much about the disease, except it was very contagious and we didn't want it to overwhelm our healthcare system. But now that the curve has been flattened, the rate of spread has been slowed, our system has not been overwhelmed — it's time to adjust to the situation. It's time to start rolling back some of these restrictions, in an orderly and sensible way."
