President Donald Trump wants to "make America white again" by including a U.S. citizenship question on the 2020 census, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

Pelosi made the remark while addressing the media Monday in her home city of San Francisco.

Republicans, Pelosi said, are attempting voter suppression and gerrymandering so "just their people vote and not the general population.

"That's why they're fighting the census," she added.

"But this is about keeping — you know, Make America, you know his hat — Make America White Again. They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted."

CNN reported on Pelosi's comments.

The Supreme Court ruled against the citizenship question effort, saying the White House provided a "contrived" explanation for why it would like the question on census forms. The Trump administration, however, continues to lobby for it — which could result in an executive order mandating that the question be put on the census.

"What they want to do is to put a chilling effect so that certain populations will not answer the form," Pelosi said Monday.
