On Thursday President Donald Trump officially abandoned his fight to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census, reported CNN. Despite the Supreme Court ruling in June that blocked the inclusion of the question, Trump remained adamant about finding a way to have it printed on the Census questionnaire.

Due to a combination of issues, including a lack of adequate time to find a way to have the question included on the Census without delaying it, Trump announced that he would be issuing an executive order directing the Commerce Department to obtain citizenship data through other means.

The order has been officially signed and released.
