President Donald Trump on Friday commanded America’s governors to immediately reopen churches and other places of worship closed by the coronavirus pandemic, threatening to “override” the state leaders if they refused to follow his directive.
“If they don’t do it I will override the governors. America, we need more prayer, not less,” he said.
“Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right,” Trump said Friday.
“It’s not right. So, I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential.”
