Trump Calls On Governors To Open Houses Of Worship, Declares Them Essential (VIDEO)

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, religious freedom has been an ongoing issue.

In many states, governors have kept liquor stores open while shutting down churches and declaring religious services non-essential.

This week, Trump called on governors across the country to open houses of worship. He even said that if they don’t, he will override them.

Trump announces that houses of worship are ‘essential,’ calls on governors to open them up

President Trump on Friday announced that new Centers for Disease Control guidance will classify houses of worship as “essential,” as he called on governors to allow them to open “right now” after being closed during the coronavirus lockdowns.

Trump announced the policy for churches, synagogues and mosques, during a short briefing 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,” Trump said. “If they don’t do it, I will override the governors.”

“In America, we need more prayer not less,” Trump added…

“Some governors have deemed the liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential,” Trump said. “But have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right. So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential.”

This is the right thing to do.
