The Trump administration's fight to get a citizenship question on the 2020 census came up during the panel discussion on Sunday's edition of Meet the Press. Host Chuck Todd asked "why does he (President Trump) continue to fight this?" After expressing certainty that President Trump's argument that the purpose of the citizenship question was for "redistricting" sunk his chances to get a citizenship question on the 2020 census, Todd worried that "even though it won't be on the form, many Hispanics may hear that it is on the form and they fear that it's on the form. He has now said it enough and maybe...the damage is done." Los Angeles Times columnist Jonah Goldberg responded to Todd's conspiracy theory by describing it as a "whiff of four-dimensional chess."
