The White House and the Hispanic community: a 'zero-communication' policy

 08/16/2018 - 13:23
During Aguirre's administration, the White House deactivated the Spanish version of its website, and communication with the Latino communication platforms was limited.

The government of Donald Trump has tried to maintain appearances with respect to its will to communicate and collaborate with the Hispanic community in the country, but the recent resignation of one of the administration's few Latino officials seems to make clear that there’s no viable communication.

Durante la gestión de Aguirre, la Casa Blanca desactivó la versión en español de su sitio web, y la comunicación con las plataformas de comunicación Latinas fue escasa.

If there are deficiencies with cybersecurity, we consider them separately. We embrace the “internet of things” without admitting that it’s also the “internet of hazards.”

The United States may have escaped most digital damage from the global “ransomware” virus, though cyber experts fear more attacks. One possible explanation is that the malicious software (”malware”) harms older versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which most Americans have replaced. Perhaps many users in other countries haven’t. Whatever the explanation, this is not the end of internet threats.
