Trump’s announcement came Friday, after he declared a national emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, in addition to partnerships with several large companies to expand testing for the illness.

“In America we celebrate faith. We cherish religion,” the president said during his State of the Union address last month. “We lift our voices in prayer and we raise our sights to the glory of God.”

Trump has large support from white evangelical Christians and Catholic voters. As president, he’s championed religious liberty and called for greater religious freedoms, such as strengthening prayer in public schools, according to Fox News.

In addition to the updated guidance on prayer in schools, the Trump administration also took action across nine federal agencies, releasing proposed rules to ensure religious organizations are not discriminated against by the federal government.
