“We want our churches open,”

“We want our churches open,” he said. “We want our places of faith, synagogues, we want them open. And that’s going to start happening. I consider them essential.”

Trump said that he expects a “very strong recommendation” to come later Friday.

Oh, he considers them "essential."  When do we suppose was the last time Trump entered a church?  If it's so essential, why are there no photo-ops of Trump in the pews, or Melania for that matter?  He's obviously just pandering to his red state evangelical base. It's so transparent, and he's willing to sacrifice lives and safety of his base for his reelection effort. They are suckers.  But of course, we all knew that.   ::)

Perhaps Trump actually is the genius his acolytes claim him to be; perhaps he want as many churches razed to the ground as possible.  8)

People are wanting to go to their place of worship, knowing the possible consequences.
