Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who received heaps of praise after her last Democratic primary debate performance, which skyrocketed her to a third place finish in the New Hampshire primary, made a rather bold and controversial statement on Thursday night, saying English should no longer be the primary language of the United States.

Interestingly, her new stance is in complete contrast to a bill she voted for in 2007 called the English-language amendment, which undid a Clinton-era executive order that required government papers to be offered in a variety of languages other than English.

The 2020 candidate attempted to defend her reversal and argue why English should no longer be the primary language in the U.S.

“I think that when you look at a state like this state, and a country like ours that is so diverse, you don’t want to have that provision in law because then it would be very difficult to have, say, government documents and other things translated into other languages,” Klobuchar said Friday, according to the AP. “So that is not a position I take. I did vote that way, but way back then, along with many other people.”

Klobuchar’s timing of her new stance on the English language is convenient — as she made the statement during a campaign stop in Las Vegas, Nevada, which will hold its caucuses on Saturday, February 22. It’s also home to a large demographic of Latino voters.


Right now, according to Breibart, Klobuchar has about 10 percent support among Latinos in the area, so taking a jab at English as the official language of the United States, especially given her history of flip-flopping on the matter, is textbook pandering.

The Minnesota senator made headlines over the weekend after she failed to name the president of Mexico after a reporter from Telemundo asked her if she knew his name, to which she replied, “No.”
