IgbereTV reports that President Donald Trump on Friday asked the US state governors allow places of worship to reopen immediately, as things seem to be returning to normal after the fight against COVID-19.
“Today I am identifying houses of worship — churches, synagogues and mosques — as essential places that provide essential services,” Trump told a news conference at the White House.
“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend,” he said.
“If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. In America, we need more prayer, not less.”
“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.
