Trump warns governors: let places of worship open this weekend

WASHINGTON, May 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday warned state governors to allow churches, synagogues and mosques in the United States to open for worship this weekend or else he will override them.

At a short appearance in the White House briefing room, Trump said he was declaring places of worship as providing essential services.

He warned governors: “If they don’t do it I will override the governors. In America we need more prayer, not less.”
