President Donald Trump on Friday urged US state governors to allow places of worship to reopen immediately, as the country moves gradually towards a lifting of COVID-19 lockdown measures.

“Today I am identifying houses of worship — churches, synagogues and mosques — as essential places that provide essential services,” Trump told a news conference at the White House.

“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend,” he said.

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