Trump Administration Deletes Español White House Site

After the Bush and Obama administrations maintained the Spanish language White House website, the Trump administration takes it down and it now displays a returned 404 error.

Pages also notably absent include civil rights history, LGBT issues and climate change.

“We hit the ground running on day one. There was a lot of work to do, and we had done a lot of work on the website to make sure that we were prepared to get as much information up as fast as possible[…]We are continuing to build out the website both in the issue areas and in that area. But we’ve got the IT folks working overtime to continue to get all of that up to speed. Trust me, it’s going to take a little bit more time, but we’re working piece by piece to get that done.” -Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary 

The United States is home to 41 million Spanish speakers, with another 11 ½ million who are bilingual.

According to Donald Trump, “This is a country where we speak English, not Spanish.”
