Pres. Trump Declares Houses of Worship ‘Essential Places that Provide Essential Services’

‘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: “Today I am identifying houses of worship, churches, synagogues and mosques as essential places that provide essential services. Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential but it left out churches and houses of worship. It's not right. So I am correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential.”
