Hey President Trump, Make English the official language

Looking at all the great work President Trump has done, I wonder, why hasn’t he made English the official language of the United States???
Seems like a no-brainier slam dunk to get this done?
I’m not a racist but if your coming to America at least make an attempt to speak English. Seems like if we don’t do this soon that we may be forced to speak Spanish, as that language seems to be taking over America, and i for one won’t stand for it!
I’m so sick of calling my doctor or almost any customer service and getting the Spanish prompts. I’m also sick of going into my bank and being greeted in Spanish and having to correct them and ask them to speak English.
Almost every other country in the world has an official language except America, what gives?
How do we start a petition or get this in front of President Trump?
Its time America….Lets speak English please!

It’s pretty pathetic how bad your English is throughout this rant.

Hello!

Here’s a short history of language in the U.S.

In 1780, John Adam’s proposal to the Continental Congress that English be made the official language of the U.S. was deemed, “undemocratic and a threat to individual liberty.” At the time, not only did the colonists have diverse native languages, but they also commonly spoke multiple languages, so picking just one language of the many spoken wasn’t a popular idea or even particularly necessary. Sadly, the language speaking capabilities of the U.S. have diminished over time, with only 18% of Americans speaking a language other than English. This is compared to 53% of Europeans, who report speaking two or more languages.
While English has come to dominate the U.S., the Government has still never declared an official language, despite the attempts of numerous politicians after John Adams. This is because the U.S. has always been a multilingual nation, though this hasn’t stopped many states from declaring English as their official language. However, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is in place to protect the rights of individual taxpayers who don’t speak fluent English. In order to receive federal funds, states must make sure that vital documents are made available in every language spoken by people receiving benefits subsidized by the Federal Government.
English Is Still the De Facto Language of the U.S.

Other than campaigners for the English Only movement, and a handful of politicians, most Americans continue going about their daily lives blissfully unaware that English isn’t the official language of their government, and who can blame them? After all, other than the changes to official U.S. documents, the fact that English isn’t the official language hasn’t stopped English from being the dominant language of the United States.

Bit Anglo-centric, isn’t it?

the beauty of being able to live in the united states is that it’s a cultural melting pot. assigning an official language to the USA would betray the purpose of the ideals upon which it was founded. besides, do you see how ridiculous it is to say “this is america, speak english!” english originates from… drumroll please… England. not the US. do better next time.
