Trump calls on governors to open 'essential' places of worship
President Donald Trump said he has deemed churches and other houses of worship โ€œessentialโ€ and called on governors to allow them to reopen this weekend despite the coronavirus threat. โ€œToday Iโ€™m identifying houses of worship โ€” churches, synagogues and mosques โ€” as essential places that provide essential services,โ€ Mr Trump said during a hastily arranged press conference. He said if governors do not abide by his request, he will โ€œoverrideโ€ them, though it is unclear what authority he has to do so.
