Losing census fight, how Trump will seek citizenship data

Clip: 07/11/2019 | 10m 37s

President Trump announced Thursday that he’s backing down from his legal fight to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Instead, he'll use an executive order to demand citizenship information from other government agencies. Yamiche Alcindor, Lisa Desjardins and Amna Nawaz join Judy Woodruff to discuss that development as well as news on Trump’s immigration policy and social media summit.
