House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Trump's push for a citizenship question in the 2020 census is part of a campaign to "make America white again."
At a press conference Monday in San Francisco, Pelosi accused Republicans of trying to get "just their people [to] vote and not the general population."
"This is about keeping -- you know, make America, you know his hat -- Make America White Again," Pelosi said. "They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted. It's really disgraceful and it's not what our founders had in mind."
"What they want to do is put a chilling effect so certain populations will not answer the form, that they won't respond," she said. "Don't give them that victory. You must respond because otherwise, they win."
