Trump is trying to ‘Make America White Again’…
Nancy Pelosi says president Donald Trump wants to add a citizenship question to next year’s census because he wants to ‘make America white again.’ The California democrat says the administration is battling in federal court to insert the question because it would have a chilling effect on who responds.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday blasted President Trump’s push for a citizenship question on the 2020 census as an effort to “Make America White Again” — claiming, “it’s not what our founders had in mind.”
“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted,” Pelosi said at a press conference in San Francisco that focused on election security. “Just their people vote and not the general population,” said the Democratic lawmaker. “That’s why they’re fighting the census.”
Pelosi, who was visiting her home district Monday, repeatedly called the idea of adding a citizenship question to next year’s survey “disgraceful.”
“This is about keeping — you know … his hat — Make America White Again,” she said.
