“This is a country where we speak English, not Spanish.”

“Este es un país donde hablamos inglés, no español”

— Presidente Donald Trump —

WhiteHouse.gov/espanol no existe. Eso no es aceptable. Las administraciones de Barack Obama y George W. Bush ofrecieron traducciones al español en sus sitios de la Casa Blanca, pero todavía no existe para la administración de Donald Trump. Sean Spicer, el secretario de Prensa, dijo que el sitio va a volver. Esperamos que sí, pero hasta entonces, vamos a traducir whitehouse.gov aquí.

WhiteHouse.gov/espanol no longer exists. This is not a partisan fight: Republican President George W. Bush offered a Spanish version of his White House website, and during the past election, candidates Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush reached out to voters in Spanish. While Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters the administration was working on updating Trump’s White House website, he did not indicate how soon or if ever a Spanish version of the site would return. Given Trump’s attitude toward Spanish, it seems unlikely that he will prioritize making executive orders, speeches, and information available to the 37+ million Americans who speak Spanish. In an effort to make this information available, we are translating the content of WhiteHouse.gov here.
