A year into the Trump administration, the White House website still has no Spanish-language content, unlike during the two previous administrations and even though nearly 1 in 5 people in the United States speaks Spanish.In July, the White House director of media affairs, Helen Aguirre Ferre, said she expected a Spanish website to launch at the end of 2017 .As Latinos became the largest minority in the U.S., President George W. Bush's administration added Spanish-language content to the White House website for the first time.The U.S. does provide news in Spanish and 40 other languages through the government-funded news outlet Voice of America.In North Korea, the government's Korea Central News Agency, the only news agency in the communist country, offers content not only in Korean but also in English, Russian and Spanish.
