6am – D         INTERVIEW – J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS – President and General Counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation. He served from 2005 to 2010 in the Voting Section at the United States Department of Justice.

  • The Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration’s official explanations for the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census were implausible and legally inadequate
  • In a surprising decision, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberals and the high court returned the case to lower courts for further action
    1. Trump seeks 2020 census delay after Supreme Court blocks citizenship question. (Fox News) — President Trump vowed Thursday to try delaying the 2020 census after the Supreme Court blocked, for now, his administration’s plan to include a question that inquires about citizenship status. The court had said that the administration’s explanation for adding the question was insufficient and sent it back to the lower courts for further consideration. The ruling marked a major setback for the administration. While more lower-court litigation is possible, it would be difficult for the government to get the question on the census in time for the forms to be printed by their original self-declared summer deadline. But Trump raised the possibility of a delay until a final resolution by the courts. In a fiery Twitter response to the narrow ruling, Trump said it “seems totally ridiculous” for the government not to ask such a “basic question.”

  • G20 Summit Live Updates: Meeting With Putin, Trump Makes Light of Election Meddling. “Don’t meddle in the election,” a smiling President Trump told the Russian leader, after a reporter asked if he would raise the issue. (USAToday) — Trump said he expected “productive” talks on Saturday with China’s leader, Xi Jinping. Trump says he’s optimistic about a China deal. President Trump voiced optimism on Friday afternoon about upcoming trade talks with China, saying that his planned meeting on Saturday morning with China’s top leader, Xi Jinping, would be productive. Taking questions during a joint news conference with President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, Mr. Trump talked repeatedly about the Xi meeting, while avoiding specific predictions. “At a minimum, it will be productive — we’ll see what happens and what comes out of it,” Mr. Trump said. He denied recent news reports that he had promised not to impose any new tariffs on China in order to arrange his meeting with Mr. Xi on Saturday. “No, I didn’t promise,” he said. Mr. Trump’s senior aides have just gone through the necessary legal steps for him to impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on $300 billion a year worth of American imports from China. But they have not given any timetable for when he might actually do so.
