On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced that he was working on some form of executive action to defy the Supreme Court and move forward with his plan to rig the 2020 Census with a response-suppressing citizenship question.


It remains unclear what exact form this executive action will take and whether it can pass muster in federal court. But as Noah Rothman, the conservative associate editor of Commentary Magazine, explained, the mere fact Trump is trying to nullify judicial decisions by executive fiat is horrifying:

The Supreme Court sustained lower courts' injunctions against the citizenship question amid clear evidence the Trump administration lied about its purpose. The matter is currently under review by district judges.
