Journalists across a range of news outlets all pushed a version of the same story on Monday and Tuesday: the Trump administration purged the Spanish-language pages from the White House website.
Headlines like “Spanish version of WhiteHouse.gov goes dark in Trump’s America” gave readers the impression that the lack of a Spanish webpage was tied to Trump’s positions on immigration. The New York Daily News ran a story claiming the website changes “show a radical overhaul of the website to align with some of President Trump’s most controversial policy priorities.”
Spain’s foreign minister even weighed in on the apparent purge, saying it was “not a good idea.”
But the actual story is far different from the one being portrayed in the media: the Trump White House is in the process of building a new website with the same domain as the Obama White House. The Obama White House website has been preserved online and is still accessible — at a different domain.
