States refuse to hand over voter data to Trump (Federalism)

President Trump has assembled the dubious-sounding Presidential Commission on Electoral Integrity, which called for states to handover details of voters. However, most states, including those run by Republican governors, have refused. Mississippi's Secretary of State, Delbert Hosemann, said "they can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi is a great state to launch from".

 Use this example to demonstrate the ongoing tension between the federal government and the states, and the fact that states are still willing to push back against what they perceive as White House overreach. You can also use it to criticise the conduct of elections in America, and to view Trump's latest initiative as another attempt at voter suppression.
