Tough Question About Trump That Made Spokesman go Silent, Completely Refusing to Respond

by Jessica

Former President Donald Trump, throughout his political career, has consistently emphasized the perils of illegal immigration at the southern border.

Initially, he focused on issues such as crime and drug trafficking, reports NBC News on Sunday, March 3.

But he has now shifted attention to what he perceives as a new problem, which is the arrival of migrants bringing unfamiliar languages into the country.

Addressing thousands of supporters at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump voiced concern about the influx of languages, claiming that there is not a single instructor in the entire nation capable of speaking those languages.

“We have languages coming into our country. We don’t have one instructor in our entire nation that can speak that language,” Trump said.

He reiterated this sentiment during an appearance at the southern border alongside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, stating that migrants are entering the country with “truly foreign languages” that nobody in the United States speaks.

“These are languages — it’s the craziest thing — they have languages that nobody in this country has ever heard of. It’s a very horrible thing,” he added.

During a rally in Virginia, Trump painted a picture of overwhelmed New York classrooms filled with students from foreign countries speaking unknown languages.

However, the specifics of what he really means with the language talk remain unclear.

Asked to elaborate, campaign spokesman Steven Cheung, emphasized that what Trump means is that migrants are invading from countries about which the United States knows nothing.

“There are migrants invading from countries that we know nothing about, which is the point,” he told NBC News on Monday, before going silent when asked which counties they are.

It’s worth noting that the United States does not have an official language, adding complexity to Trump’s assertion about languages being a threat.

Despite lacking clarity on the specific languages he refers to, Trump consistently advocates for stringent immigration measures at his campaign rallies.

He has pledged to execute the largest domestic deportation operation if re-elected, expressing intentions to reinstate the controversial Muslim travel ban and expand it to include Gazan refugees.

Additionally, Trump has proposed incorporating “ideological screenings” for all immigrants, a stance that has sparked controversy and comparisons to historical figures such as Adolf Hitler.

The language-related concerns raised by Trump underscore a broader narrative of perceived threats posed by immigrants, touching on cultural and linguistic aspects.

The lack of specificity regarding these languages, however, leaves room for interpretation and raises questions about the basis for such assertions.
