President Trump said he will move to designate churches and other houses of worship as essential services in a Friday announcement at the White House.
Trump claimed he would "override" governors who did not open up their houses of worship for in-person services, although he likely does not have the authority to do so.
"I call upon governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. 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.

US President Donald Trump has declared that churches, synagogues and mosques are ‘essential' establishments. He ordered governors to allow them to reopen immediately, and threatened to override them if they refuse.
