Don­ald Trump

The Guardian Weekly - - International News -

has scrapped his ad­vi­sory com­mis­sion on “elec­tion in­tegrity”, end­ing an ini­tia­tive that was widely de­nounced by civil rights groups as a thinly veiled at­tempt to sup­press the votes of poor peo­ple and mi­nori­ties. A White House state­ment re­leased last Wed­nes­day said that Trump had signed an ex­ec­u­tive order dis­solv­ing the com­mis­sion. The pres­i­dent put the blame on the many states that re­fused to co­op­er­ate with it by hand­ing over vot­ers’ sen­si­tive per­sonal data.
