Trump: We speak English here, not Spanish


PEDITED. THEY WILL COME BACK LEGALLY. >>ON THAT NOTE, YOU HAVE CRITICIZED GOVERNOR BUSH FOR SPEAKING SPANISH ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. YOU SAID QUOTE, HE SHOULD REALLY SET AN EXAMPLE BY SPEAKING ENGLISH IN THE UNITED STATES. WHAT’S WRONG WITH SPEAKING SPANISH?>>I THINK IT’S WONDERFUL AND ALL, BUT I DID IT A LITTLE BIT HALF-H HALF-HEARTILY. WE HAVE A COUNTRY YOU HAVE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND WHERE HE WAS AND THE WAY IT CAME OUT DIDN’T SOUND RIGHT TO ME. WE HAVE TO HAVE A SIMULATION TO HAVE A COUNTRY. I’M NOT THE FIRST ONE TO SAY THIS, DANA, WE’VE HAD MANY PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS FOR MANY, MANY YEARS SAYING THIS IS A COUNTRY WHERE WE SPEAK ENGLISH, NOT SPANISH.

MY GRANDFATHER INSTILLED IN ME THE BELIEF I WAS BLESSED TO LIVE IN ONE SOCIETY WHERE EVEN I, THE SON OF A BARTENDER AND MADE COULD ASPIRE TO HAVE ANYTHING AND BE ANYTHING I WAS WILLING TO WORK HARD TO ACHIEVE BUT TAUGHT ME THAT IN SPANISH BECAUSE IT WAS THE LANGUAGE HE WAS MOST COMFORTABLE IN AND HE BECAME A CONSERVATIVE EVEN THOUGH HE GOT NEWS IN SPANISH. I BELIEVE THAT FREE ENTERPRISE AND LIMITED GOVERNMENT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE UPWARD MOBILITY AND IF THEY GET NEWS IN
