Tate Reeves to Newsmax TV: Americans Need to Pray More and Fight Less

By    |   Wednesday, 27 May 2020 12:40 PM EDT

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves told Newsmax TV on Wednesday that Americans “need a lot more prayer… and a lot less fighting” during the coronavirus pandemic.

On “The National Report” Wednesday morning, Reeves was asked about recent hostile incidents over face masks or other measures made in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The governor said that his message to “my fellow Mississippians, my fellow Americans is: be patient, we need a lot more prayer in this country and a lot less fighting in this country, and that’s certainly something we’re encouraging in our state.”

“This is not who we are as people,” he said. “We are Mississippians, we are Americans, we love each other.” 

“I know that people are frustrated,” Reeves added. “Some people are scared, people are upset and I understand that. And there's good reason for that: we are in unchartered, unparalleled territory. We haven't seen a pandemic such as this in the United States in over one hundred years, so basically none of us were alive the last time we dealt with a pandemic that does anything like this. The fact is, when you look at the employment numbers, and we're at Great Depression-type levels, when you look at the frustration that exists amongst folks, I get it, I really do.”
