(USA Features) President Donald Trump said Tuesday he thinks it would be a “beautiful thing” to see American churches ‘packed’ again by Easter Sunday despite the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic.

He also said it would be a “beautiful time” for people to resume their routines by Easter Sunday, April 12, during a Tuesday interview with Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer.

“Look: Easter’s a very special day for me. 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 the churches full?'” Trump said.




“The churches aren’t allowed, essentially, to have much of a congregation there,” he continued, later noting that Christians have been unable to worship in person.

“You’ll have packed churches all over our country. I think it would be a beautiful time, and it’s just about the timeline that I think is right,” he concluded, though he did say he wasn’t sure yet that public health concerns would be met.
