Newsmax White House correspondent John Gizzi recently asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at a White House press briefing about making English the official language of government. Sanders responded: “That is the position of the White House.”
ProEnglish continues to engage White House aides about having President Trump sign an Executive Order as quickly as possible to repeal former President Clinton’s Executive Order 13166 which requires multiple languages, interpretations, and translations of all federally-funded agencies and contractors.
ProEnglish also has prepared a draft Executive Order and has sent it to the White House for review.
President Trump frequently has stated: “We have a country where to assimilate, you have to speak English.”
Vice President Pence co-sponsored the English Language Unity Act 5 times as a member of Congress from Indiana.
A new White House Executive Order, signed by President Trump to repeal and replace President Clinton’s onerous Executive Order 13166, is the next and most crucial step toward making English the official language of U.S. governmental operations, and ProEnglish strongly encourages President Trump to sign a new Executive Order as soon as possible.
