South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Thursday lambasted President Trump's reversal on previous plans to push for a citizenship question on the 2020 census, calling the move a "face-saving way to recognize that he's been on the wrong side."

Buttigieg, a Democratic presidential hopeful, said in an interview with CNN that Trump's decision earlier Thursday to drop his administration's effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census shows that the president is "recognizing reality and backing down."

"It sounds like a face-saving way to recognize that he's been on the wrong side of the law throughout," he said. "There are any number of ways to do research on issues like immigration, but tinkering with the census was clearly racially and politically motivated."

"It's why it was held to be unlawful by the courts," Buttigieg added. "And it sounds - although he changes his mind from day to day, so you don't really know for sure but - it sounds like he was at least at last recognizing reality and backing down."

Pete Buttigieg: Trump's July 4th event 'makes America look smaller'

Pete Buttigieg: Trump's July 4th event 'makes America look smaller' Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday slammed President Donald Trump's upcoming July Fourth "Salute to America" parade, saying that the event -- which will feature military tanks and flyovers in Washington -- only "makes America look smaller." "One of the reasons I joined the military was that in a small way I wanted to be part of seeing to it that my country was not the kind of place where a leader feels the need to boost his own ego by rolling tanks down the streets of our capital," the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead." "We've always been bigger than that.

He ' s reluctant to call Trump a Christian. Buttigieg didn’t explicitly apply this passage to the religious right. Because people who are on what I would call the wrong side of this issue and of history probably don't think of themselves as hateful. So we've got to make sure that they feel good about

Trump said Thursday that he would issue an executive order requiring federal agencies to provide the Commerce Department information on citizens and noncitizens in the United States. The move came after the Supreme Court ruled late last month that a citizenship question could not be added to the 2020 census because the administration's reasoning - that the question was necessary to help enforce the Voting Rights Act - was "contrived."

It has also been reported that a lawyer who works for the Trump Organization has worked on the case. Buttigieg found a cautious ally in Joni Ernst, a Republican senator from Iowa who served in the national guard, deploying to Kuwait, and is a member of the armed services committee.

Trump's plan had faced intense scrutiny from those who warned that the question could lead to an undercount by discouraging participation among immigrants and citizens who fear they could expose undocumented family members. Possible undercounts, critics warned, may cause certain areas to lose out on federal funding and have their congressional districts unfavorably redrawn.

The proposal faced further scrutiny after evidence showed that a Republican redistricting strategist played a significant role in the Trump administration's efforts to add a citizenship question to the census, undercutting the administration's argument that the question is needed to enforce the Voting Rights Act.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a fellow 2020 contender, also took aim at Trump's reversal on Thursday, quipping, "Wow, he's going to follow the law?"

"This is not about trying to find out real information about citizenship and non-citizenship in America. This is just about trying to stir up more hate. To try to get some more people excited," she added.
