Donald Trump attempts other languages

Sorry Trump — maybe just stick to English. (sound on)

Trump's comments about those who speak other languages have raised some eyebrows

It seems President Donald Trump only speaks English, despite the fact that members of his family are multilingual. America has yet to hear him speak full sentences in any other language, and English-centric campaigning appears to be a point of pride for his administration. In 2015, he even said that, “We’re a nation that speaks English, and I think while we’re in this nation we should be speaking English,” per Reuters. In an analysis of his 2016 presidential race, Politico reported that Trump spent zero dollars on Spanish ads — compared to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s combined $23 million in 2012.

His ability to spin language mishap narratives to his talking point

“Prime Minister Modi, you are not just the pride of “goo-yart.” “As the great religious teacher Swami Vive-kamun-nund once said. They were silent. Silencio!” “They’re going loco! Loco. That’s alright.” “These people have lost their way. They’ve gone loco!” “These people are loco, I’m telling you.” “I used the term last night, “loco.” “They got worse! They’re worse now than ever. They’re loco, but that’s okay.” “They have gone loco. They have gone loco.” “They’re bad hombres, you better believe it.” “As I would sometimes say, “rough hombres.” These are rough, rough, tough people.” “As I said the other day, “bad hombres.” There’s some bad hombres in that group.” “Adios, America. You think she’s kidding? She’s not kidding.” “Adios, Amigo! Is that right?”

Linguistic prowess has become one small tactic to appeal to potential voters

There’s nothing abnormal about not being able to speak another language. Aside from campaigning to potential voters, it’s not like recent presidents George W. Bush or Barack Obama masterfully switched between other languages while in office. Franklin D. Roosevelt, who served all the way back in the 1930s and spoke German and French, is sometimes cited to have been the last multilingual president.
