WASHINGTON (AP) — Five months into his administration, President Donald Trump has yet to offer a Spanish White House website.

Other signs that the Trump administration is ignoring speakers include the elimination of the position of director of Hispanic media outreach. And the White House's Spanish-language Twitter account is heavy with English text and features sloppy translations.

The White House director of media affairs, Helen Aguirre Ferre, says she expects a Spanish website to launch later this year. She notes that the Obama administration took nine months to launch its version.

President George W. Bush began the tradition of a Spanish-language website. President Barack Obama followed suit.
