President Trump on Friday announced that new Centers for Disease Control guidance will classify houses of worship as “essential,” as he called on governors to allow them to open “right now” after being closed during the coronavirus lockdowns.

Trump announced the policy for churches, synagogues and mosques, during a short briefing at the White House.

BALTIMORE PASTOR RIPS UP CEASE-AND-DESIST LETTER MID-SERMON: 'WE'RE GONNA DO IT GOD'S WAY!'

"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 said. "If they don't do it, I will override the governors."

"In America, we need more prayer not less," Trump added.

It's unclear under what authority Trump has to override governors. But Trump took issue with certain businesses being open, while churches are not. Attorney General William Barr already warned last month that coronavirus restrictions by state and local government should be applied evenly and not single out religious organizations.

"Some governors have deemed the liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential," Trump said. "But have left out churches and other houses of worship. It's not right. So I'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential."

That actually will stimulate the economy because people buy clothes to wear to religious services and activities.

The pastor mentioned California as opening things that meant nothing to religious people but still not allowing the free exercise of religion.

Can he make states do that? I don't think he has the power to do that.

I saw the clip I didn't know how to copy it here. He says all governors must abide. If they don't he will override them. "Any governor that has a problem can call me but they won't be successful". His statement was pretty powerful.

NY already allows minyanim of 10 ppl. I guess it's meant for the states that are not allowing that yet.

They think abortion clinics, liquor stores, and pot stores are essential. You can get wasted on your way to murder your baby. And meanwhile blue government will take care of killing your grandma in the nursing home by seeding them with covid.

There’s a joke going around, if trump would say not to reopen, the blue states would of long opened.

Oh well..

Of course he can. The president has the power to override any governor.
