United States leader, President Trump, has, on Friday, demanded that states allow places of worship to reopen and threatened to overrule any that defy him.
Marching into the White House briefing room for a hastily called announcement, President Trump declared places of worship “essential” operations that should hold services this weekend regardless of state quarantine orders, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic that has killed nearly 96,000 people in the United States.

“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. In America, we need more prayer, not less.”
