Sri Lanka, July 12 -- US President Donald Trump, speaking at the White House yesterday, announced that he would "immediately" issue an executive order to get an accurate count of non-citizens and citizens in the United States.

A measure President Trump said would be "far more accurate" than relying on a citizenship question in the 2020 census.

The president said that the move would make use of "vast" federal databases and free up information sharing among all federal agencies concerning who they know is living in the country.
