Attorney General William Barr said on Monday that the Trump administration can add the citizenship question to the census for 2020 and will be proceeding as such, despite the Supreme Court ruling last month.

“I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong,” Barr said in an interview with the Associated Press.

He added that there is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”

Last month’s SCOTUS ruling was primarily centered around the administration’s justification of adding the citizenship to the census, which was to properly enforce the Voting Rights Act. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the liberal court members in saying their rationale “seems to have been contrived.”

Barr will be tasked in coming up with a new reasoning to add citizenship to the census, and the Justice Department has shaken up their legal team to ready themselves for the next battle.

“Since these cases began, the lawyers representing the United States in these cases have given countless hours to defending the Commerce Department and have consistently demonstrated the highest professionalism, integrity and skill inside and outside the courtroom,” department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement.

Although it was widely reported that President Trump would give up on the census question after the SCOTUS ruling, he quickly went onto Twitter to denounce those reports as fake news.

Trump has proven those mainstream reports as fake, and will be moving forward with his efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Recent opinion polls have shown that the public is firmly on his side when it comes to this decision.

Barr refused to give any specific details about his strategy in how the censorship question will be added to the 2020 census in the interview, but is expected to move forward on a new strategy in the upcoming weeks.
