Can Trump make English the official language of the United States?

But if he did that, he'd have to learn English himself.

No, not unilaterally. He can suggest it, and could even draft legislation to make it happen, but like with everyone else, who can also write a bill, it has to be sponsored by someone in Congress, and go through all the same channels that every other bill goes through.

Your question is in the wrong forum because this is not a language question but a question about government. I do not know enough about the US government to know if this is a federal or state matter. If it is a federal one I do not know if it is within the executive or legislative fold.

That would be a violation if the first amendment. Everyone in america has the right to freedom of speech, which includes the right to speak in whatever language best suits them.

There's no reason for him or anybody else to do that .. Most who have a need for English
speak it at least conversely, plus would encourage monolinguals to act entitled / stuck-up.Source(s): I'm fluent in three languages including English, conversant in a forth and know phrases/words in others. Among those wanting to make English the official language, good luck finding any with such qualifications / ability.

But many US States already have English as the Official Language.
