WASHINGTON ó President Donald Trump has told aides and allies that he is considering removing Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross after a stinging Supreme Court defeat on adding a citizenship question to the census, according to multiple people familiar with the conversations.

While Trump has previously expressed frustration with the 81-year-old Ross, in particular over failed trade negotiations, Ross's long personal relationship with the president has allowed him to keep his job. And after the departure of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, the Cabinetís only Hispanic who resigned on Friday amid questions about his role in a controversial 2008 plea agreement with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Ross may yet receive another reprieve.

But some White House officials expect Ross to be the next Cabinet secretary to depart, possibly as soon as this summer, according to advisers and officials.

Frustrated by Ross' leadership of the Census Bureau, which is within the Commerce Department, Trump has been making calls to allies outside the White House musing about replacing Ross.

I wonder if something else damaging about Ross may be forthcoming?

2. Wilbur is a crook,

 

he laundered money at the Bank of Cyprus.

He fits in well with Trump/Barr, why would Trump fire another crook?

3. tRump needs to

look in the mirror before deciding who needs replacing. Many people say, believe me that the one to replace is the orange blob of lard in the WH. Get him out, let the rest of the crooks get out and we can start to make this country NORMAL again. We need an ADULT in the WH once again, with intelligent people around them. The gop is so corrupt, they are terrified that all their secrets will come out if they tell the truth about their orange ass "leader"
