"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.
