  • Trump says he is 'absolutely moving forward' with census question, contradicting his own administration's officials

    Contradicting both his Department of Justice and his secretary of Commerce, President Donald Trump vowed on Wednesday to keep fighting to have a citizenship question added to the 2020 census.

    "We are absolutely moving forward, as we must," Trump said in a tweet.
    The President's message suggested that he was either reacting to criticism from the right that the government had unnecessarily caved on the issue, or perhaps speaking past the parties involved in two lawsuits in an effort to energize his base on the issue. One example of the criticism Trump faced Tuesday: conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt sent out a tweet that he was "very surprised" that the President had "surrendered without a battle on this issue."
    Trump disputed that characterization in his tweet Wednesday."The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect, or, to state it differently, FAKE!" the President wrote.

    Trump expected to announce executive action on census

    President Donald Trump is expected to announce an executive action on the census Thursday, multiple White House officials said.

    One official said the action is expected to address the citizenship question that's captured his attention. Trump tweeted Thursday morning he would be holding a press conference in the Rose Garden in the afternoon about "the census and citizenship."
    The Supreme Court late last month blocked a citizenship question from being added to the 2020 census. The bitter controversy centers around whether the administration can ask all recipients a citizenship question on the 2020 census for the first time since 1950 -- a move that could impact the balance of power in states and the House of Representatives, which are based on total population. Adding the question, critics say, could result in minorities being undercounted.

      ... sounds like he gave up the census fight while declaring victory, as usual.

        And saying he's going to ask the question anyway, even though he knows he's not going to.
