US President, Donald Trump has ordered governors to open up places of worship saying that is wrong for some state governors to consider ‘liquor stores and abortion clinics’ as ‘essential services’ but keep places of worship closed.
Amid the Coronavirus pandemic that has taken over 95,000 people in the US, Trump on Friday said he is designating all places of worship – including churches, synagogues and mosques – “essential,” and wants them to open immediately.
Reacting to the move by state governors of keeping “liquor stores and abortion centres” open during during the lockdown while keeping places of worship closed, Trump said in the White House briefing room.
“It’s not right. I’m calling houses of worship essential.”
“If there’s any question, they’re going to have to call me, but they’re not going to be successful in that call,” Trump said of state leaders.
“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend,”
“If they don’t do it, I will override the governors.”
“It’s not right,” ”This move is aimed at correcting this injustice.”
“If there’s any question, they’re going to have to call me, But they are not going to be successful in that call.”
“In America, we need more prayer, Not less.” Mr Trump said before leaving the briefing room.
