“What is America?” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked in a rhetorical question she, then, proceeded to opine on at a press event on Monday.
America was given by God to Americans, Pelosi said – warning that President Donald Trump and his administration are degrading and denigrating it on a daily basis:
“Who is America? America is our Constitution.
“What is America? It is this beautiful land that God gave us from sea to shining sea and beyond that they are degrading on every single day that they serve in office.
“What is America? America is our people – the beautiful diversity of America and they denigrate newcomers to our country.
“They dishonor the Constitution. They degrade the environment from land. They denigrate the diversity that is the beauty of the mix of America and they undermine our values as a country, who we are as a country.”
Pelosi made the comments while criticizing Pres. Trump’s efforts to include a citizenship question on the next U.S. Census.
