THE PRESIDENT TWEETED today at 11:06 a.m.: “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! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.”

UH … The Trump administration itself announced the question wouldn’t be on the census Tuesday! From the WSJ: “‘We can confirm that the decision has been made to print the 2020 decennial census questionnaire without a citizenship question, and that the printer has been instructed to begin the printing process,’ a Justice Department attorney told lawyers for New York state and the American Civil Liberties Union by email Tuesday afternoon.”
