Trump makes unenforceable threat to governors over churches

Trump makes unenforceable threat to governors over churches 1


President Donald Trump announced that his administration is issuing guidance deeming places of worship "essential" during the coronavirus pandemic, calling on governors to reopen religious institutions for services.
Trump threatened to "override" governors if their states did not follow the new federal recommendations, but it was unclear what authority the President was referring to. The recommendations are voluntary.
"Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics essential, but have left out churches and houses of worship. It's not right. So I'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential," Trump said during his announcement at the White House.
Trump said he was calling upon governors to "allow 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 added.
"The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, this weekend. If they don't do it, I will override the governors," he continued.

    Churches have never been closed. The BUILDINGS were closed. A church is more than its building. Stay healthy. Pray at home. 🙏🏽🙏🏿

    • @Brenda Higgins The Bible says, where there are 2 or 3 gathered in my name. I will be in the midst of them.

    • @The Tool Man Exactly ans amen!

    • The people are not expendable

    • People have not stop attending church. We are attending church online.
      Praising, worshipping, praying and giving offerings and tithes.
      When it’s scientifically reasonable we will congregate in the physical church building.

    He is just pacifying his evangelical voters-they vote for him in droves

  4. Where do I even start with this one:
    Mocking a physically disabled reporter? Bragging about groping women by their private parts? Calling an entire nationality of people “£apists”? Rating women on a scale from 1–10 of how 5exy they are? Saying that women who get 5exually assaulted or harassed in the workplace are the ones who need to find a new job? Calling for the imprisonment of his political opponents?

    Trump has cheated thousands of people whom he hired in the past for jobs, then simply told them, “I’m not paying you. Sue me.” He ran a fake charity foundation, and a fake University, to which he had to pay a $25,000,000 settlement to the people he scammed (G.reed). He has cheated on all his wives, (L.ust); spends the vast majority of his time locked in his room watching TV and trolling twitter, instead of actually working (S.loth); binges on nothing but fast-food and soda (G.luttony); publicly belittles his own staff and former associates, and tries to destroy anyone who criticizes him (Wrath); hates how great patriots like John McCain and Obama are beloved by America and tries to tear them down out of jealousy (Envy); He is a raging narcissist who speaks of himself in the third person, boasts about his minor achievements with lavish parties and press opportunities, holds rallies only for the purpose of feeding his own ego, and repeatedly claims, “Nobody can do it but me! Nobody knows more than me! No one can solve our problems but me!”  Trump said he’s never asked God for forgiveness, because he’s never done anything wrong (Pride).

      Oh so if Trump vouches to open churches it’s a crime, but you libtards have no problems with liquor stores remaining open. Clearly those are a necessity.

      I’ve been repeating this verse for three years……He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the TRUTH.

      @MusicStudent1 Why the shock? We’ve been under crazy since 2016.

  6. “When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men.
    – Matthew 6.5
    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray.
    – Matthew 6.6

    Hypocrites !

      @Craig806 the verse makes sense if there is no pandemic. Remember, God cannot stand in the way of ignorance and naïveté.

      @Craig806 yes its true. We never wanna forsake our meetings. But Paul never mentioned WHERE they should take place. Why? Because it doesnt matter. Decades earlier, Jesus said “For where there are 2 or 3 gathered in my name, there i am in their midst” (Mat.18:20). Where we meet for our meetings doesnt matter. Could be Churches, homes, rented facilities, and even fields and forests. The most popular one is online. And that works fine because Its the ACT of meeting together that we never wanna forsake.

      Some may be asymptomatic, have it, no symptoms and spread it unknowingly because they don’t know they have it because they feel fine..

    • Houston Welch | May 22, 2020 at 10:12 PM | Reply

      If you have it, you’ll know it. Asymptomatic or not.

    • @Houston Welch – No – you’re wrong – what do you base that assertion on?

  11. I’m pretty sure Jesus would be okay with you praying from home.

  12. Can we just all agree on that even god doesn’t want his children to go to church now. Let god protect you at your house and show gratitude later in the church.

      Amen. The weak fail to see. If a person stands in the garage, that doesn’t make them a car. If you go to church, doesn’t make you a Christian..

      Yeah we’re all going to hell for not going to church. Back in the day people would pray in their homes.

  13. The way he talks seems like the drug he’s been taking is kickin in lol

    • @Russel Moran Poor Russell. He can’t successfully impersonate an adult or make an intelligent remark due to his MORONa Virus, creating delusions of cleverness and importance and credibility. Keep taking your meds and perhaps the hallucinations will stop. If you keep trying we know soon you will suck seed.

      He always talked this way.

    • @jones so you have not seen Joe Biden give a speech. News flash Jonesy Boy. Biden just told black people they are not black if they vote for Trump. What a dumbass ! And let me guess that’s who you are supporting ? Could you imagine Biden trying to speak to the world ? America will be the laughing stock of the world.

    • VOTE BIDEN !
