US President Donald Trump has told Fox News that he hopes to have the Coronavirus under control by Easter Sunday so that churches all over the country can be packed for Easter services.
“Easter is a very special day for me,” President Trump said. “And I see it sort of in that timeline that I’m thinking about. And I say, wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full?
“You know, the churches aren’t allowed, essentially, to have much of a congregation there. And most of them, I watched on Sunday, online — and he was terrific, by the way — but online is never going to be like being there.
“So, I think Easter Sunday, and you’ll have packed churches all over our country. I think it’d be a beautiful time. And it’s just about the timeline I think is right.
The President went on to say, “It gives us more chance to work on what we’re doing — and I’m not sure that’s going to be the day, but I would love to aim it right at Easter Sunday so we’re open for church service and services, generally, on Easter Sunday. That would be a beautiful thing.”
