President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would hold a news conference in the afternoon related to “the Census and Citizenship” and a senior administration official told ABC News the president was expected to announce an executive action to move forward with adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The announcement comes as the president has been weighing options for how to add the controversial citizenship question, even after the Supreme Court rejected the administration’s stated rationale for doing so as “contrived.”

While the Justice Department had initially accepted the Supreme Court’s ruling and signaled the administration would no longer pursue the citizenship question for the 2020 census, the administration abruptly changed course after the president said that the administration was “absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.”
