Churches and mosques in the United States of America are expected to open this weekend following a directive by President Donald Trump to Governors to open houses of worship.

President Trump on May 22 declared house of worship “essential” and directed the country’s governors “to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, this weekend.”

“The people are demanding to go to church and their synagogue, to go to their mosque. Many, many millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life. The ministers, pastors, imams and other faith leaders will make sure their congregations are safe as they gather and pray. They love their congregations, they love their people,” he said.

He added that “If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. What America needs now is more prayer, not less.”

President Trump argues that several governors “have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right.”

The US currently has a total of 1,601,434 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, 96,007 deaths as well as 350,135 recoveries.
