Dictator trump expected to announce executive action on census

Washington (CNN)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.

Some type of direct action by Trump has been one of several avenues explored by the administration to place the question on the decennial population survey following the late June Supreme Court ruling. But any action by the President is likely to be challenged in court.

1. Will this finally be a constitutional crisis?

Denying a supreme court ruling.

5. This wouldn't defy the SCOTUS ruling

It goes around it and likely causes an entirely new constitutional question.

4. I did a thought provoking post on FB....

On my timeline. It will anger some people, but perhaps get them to think.

What Trump is doing here is pitting American against American in order to maintain power and perhaps even go so far as calling off the 2020 Elections. The mere fact that there are no opposition to Trump, even Congressional Republicans dare not defy him, but he can say "FUCK YOU" to the USSC.

What we are witnessing is a hostile takeover of our American Democracy by a man who thumbs his nose to the US Constitution and to the rule of law. Had this been a Democrat in the White House acting like this, cries of "IMPEACHMENT" would be heard from coast to coast.

Think about that for a moment.

7. all the more reason

the Impeachment inquiry must go ahead. He takes more and more each day, chipping away at that foundation. I noticed that to avoid these continuous acts of total arrogance towards the rule of law and everything we stand for must be confronted or it will be too late.

Putin would have successfully dismantled the US something he has wanted for a very long time. Getting his revenge on us through a puppet.
