affirms, house of Worship is essential
President Donald Trump on Friday demanded that governors reopen churches, synagogues, and Mosques “right now,” He made it clear that the house of worship is an essential place to allow citizens to congregate thereby threatened to override state leaders’ restrictions if they do not do so by the weekend.
The United States of America President who has witnessed a lot of death amidst the pandemic in which all measures are in place to curb the spread of the virus admitted that the leaders of religious centers love their members and would do everything to protect them.
“I know them well, they love their congregation, they love their people and they will do everything to protect them” he assured.
He however appreciates the efforts of the agency, CDC in control of the spread of the deadly virus Covid-19 adding that they have done great work since its breakout.
The surprise announcement marked the President’s latest attempt to ramp up the political stakes surrounding the country’s coronavirus recovery efforts. He is facing a tough re-election fight against apparent Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Trump said it was an injustice that some state leaders have allowed liquor stores and abortion clinics to stay open amid the Covid-19 pandemic while closing houses of worship.
“It’s not right,” Trump said. “I’m calling houses of worship essential.”
Although he said if there is any question over the instruction, he would be available to answer them through calls.
“If there’s any question, they’re going to have to call me, but they’re not going to be successful in that call,” Trump said to State leaders.
“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important and essential places of faith to open right now,” Trump said.
Recall that the deadly virus, Covid-19 has killed several thousands of Americans as well as scores in other parts of the world including Nigeria hence the lockdown of the worship centers.
