On Tuesday the Donald announced new voluntary federal guidelines for places of worship to open their doors during the coronavirus pandemic. The president claims he has the authority to override governors who refused to comply but did not cite any presidential authority.
I can absolutely do it if I want to, and I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need people that are going to be leading us in faith. And we're opening 'em up, and if I have to, I will override any governor that wants to play games.

was published at OpEdNews on April 24, 2020. The OpEd pointed out that while we are in a war with the Covid-19 virus, the Donald has access to emergency powers contained in 123 statutory provisions that address a broad range of matters, from military composition to agricultural exports to public contracts.
Congress, concerned about the ramifications of the president's access to emergency power, passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976. Under this law, the president has complete discretion to issue an emergency declaration but he is required to specify in the declaration which powers he intends to use, issue public updates if he decides to invoke additional powers, and report to Congress on the government's emergency-related expenditures every six months.

April 13 + 6 months = October 13, 2020. Trump needs to wait until May 13, the 2020 Election is November 3, 2020.
Trump won't be backing down this time around
May 23, 2020 Trump attempted to declare church services "essential. The federal guidance issued last week by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers leeway to organizations to decide what they should do to limit the spread of the virus, and the CDC describes the guidelines as "general considerations," "suggestions" and "non-binding public health guidance for consideration only."
