Is Melania Trump really fluent in five languages?
Melania Trump claims to be fluent in English, French, Italian, German and Slovenian. But is she really?
I speak five languages (Spanish, French, Italian, Greek and English), looked into the issue, and what I found raises questions about just how well Melania Trump truly speaks French and Italian.
Why does this matter? Because just this week, Donald Trump announced a new immigration policy whereby potential immigrants with skills, and fluency in English, will get favored treatment. So the issue of whether Melania Trump, America’s most famous immigrant, even spoke English when she got here, and whether she’s telling the truth about her overall language abilities, matters. Because her husband made it matter.
And finally, this goes to the larger issue of this administration being one continuous ongoing lie. If they lie about the little stuff, imagine what they’re doing with issues that really matter.
