'The god of under par': Trump critics wonder why he went golfing instead of going to church after deeming them 'essential'

President Donald Trump proclaimed that all houses of worship were "essential" and must open whether they wanted to or not. While Americans had a choice of whether to attend services at their church, Trump maintained that "it's not right" to have churches be closed.


"So I'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential," he said during a statement at the White House. "I call upon governors to allow our 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. The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend. If they don't do it, I will override the governors. In America we need more prayer, not less."

He then left without taking any questions.

While Trump explained that churches were so important, they weren't important enough for him to attend services on Sunday. Instead, he went to worship on the links, praying to the god of "under par" at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

"In America we need more prayer, not less," Trump said on Friday. It's unclear if the golf course is the place where he prays the most

It was something that didn't go unnoticed from those asking where Trump would worship on Sunday.
