Trump said he was asking “the governors to authorize the opening of our churches and places of worship now.”
The president said he wanted religious leaders to ensure that “congregations are safe when they meet and pray.”

Governors must do the right thing and allow these important, essential places of faith to open now, because this weekend. If they don’t, I will reverse (the governors’) decision, “added the president.
