“Some states may want to draw districts based on voter eligible population,” Trump says
There you have it. The goal of citizenship question all along was to draw districts to shift power to white GOP areas

Just as we knew already, Comrade Stupid admits what was driving him: sheer racism.
And in case you missed it, Hair Füror has allegedly admitted defeat on his 2020 Census Citizenship Question.
But he’s not giving up the fight, entirely:
Trump says he is pursuing a “new option” over the citizenship question because litigation would take too long: he’s ordering federal departments to “provide the Department of Commerce with all requested records regarding the number of citizens and non-citizens in our country.”

It’s not clear to me what the plan is, except to try to discredit the census later by showing it does not agree with his own internal numbers.
But in the meanwhile, the Commerce Department has had the data Stupid said was needed on the census the entire time. So Comrade Prznint was just dickin’ with them, is that right?
No wonder he had strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr with him as he made this announcement, otherwise the DOJ lawyers might have gotten up, thrown their shoes at Prznint Stupid, and walked out.
