Wilbur Ross in Trump's cross hairs

Business | 15 Jul 2019 6:14 pm

U.S. President Donald Trump has told aides and allies that he is considering removing Commerce 
Secretary Wilbur Ross after a Supreme Court defeat on adding a citizenship question to the census, NBC News reported https://nbcnews.to/2XPQJ4B on Monday, Reuters reports. 
Trump retreated on Thursday from adding a contentious question on citizenship to the 2020 census, but insisted he was not giving up his fight to count how many non-citizens are in the country and ordered government agencies to mine their databases. 
Although Trump has previously been frustrated with Ross, in particular over some failed trade negotiations, the 81-year-old commerce secretary has so far kept his job. 
However, the network reported early Monday, that Trump has 
been making calls to "allies outside the White House about 
replacing Ross."
