Trump Orders Churches & Mosques To Open Declares Them “Essential” (VIDEO)

Post by Factboyz »

President Donald J. Trump announced on Friday that new Centers for Disease Control guidance will classify houses of worship as “essential,” these houses of worship include churches, mosques and synagogues.

He ordered governors in the US to open them up “right now” as they have been closed following the widespread coronavirus lockdowns.

Trump said,

“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,”

It must be noted that his announcement comes just after he heard concerns of faith leaders who are unable to hold Sunday services due to coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions. Fox News reported saying,

“I consider them essential,”

Trump said earlier Friday of houses of worship of all faiths.

On Thursday, the previous day, Trump had a conference call which had 1,600 pastors and faith leaders from around the country, including Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council participating. He reassured them he wants to get churches reopened.

Trump’s announcement comes even as he gears for the upcoming 2020 November US elections which could see former Vice President Joe Biden, battle with him at the polls.

Recall that Earlier in the pandemic, Trump had expressed optimism that churches would be opened by Easter Sunday, April 12. However, April turned out to be an extremely deadly month for the pandemic, and parishioners had to celebrate Easter from home.
