Trump added: "The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now".

"Our people want to go back to church on Sundays", Trump said during an appearance in Michigan Thursday.

He went on to say that "These are places that hold our society together and keep our people united. The ministers, pastors, rabbis, imams and other faiths leaders will make sure that their congregations are safe as they gather and pray".
