Convention Bungles ‘Hispanics for Trump’ Sign

The Republican National Convention messed up their Spanish grammar on signs that were meant to say “Hispanics for Trump.”

The Hill reports:

Signs seen being waved at the convention — presumably passed out along with other placards — read “Hispanics para Trump.”

Not only did the text not translate “Hispanics” to “Hispanos,” it also used “para” instead of “por.”

The two words — which both denote various meanings of the word “for” — are easily mixed up and a common point of frustration for those learning the language.

Trump is lagging far behind presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who launched a Spanish language Twitter account Wednesday, with Hispanic voters.
