The Trump Presidency...

The state of Michigan seems to the most likely one for that then (I think that has a high amount of Somali's as well as Arabic speakers)

Hasn't happened yet though has it?

It is important to remember that not all areas showing other languages have those languages in use to immigration.
Substantial parts of the three northeast states marked "French" (Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine) were at one point part of the French colony of New France. The British drove the French out bit by bit in King Williams War, Queen Anne's War, King Georges War and the Seven Years War, eventually all was lost by France after the battle of the Plains of Abraham. Some of the area was ceded by France to Britain by the Treaty of Utrecht. Maine, by the way, was then part of Massachusetts. The French speaking people of Northern Maine get offended if described as French-Canadian and will point out that where they are from went from French to what is now the US without ever being Canadian.
Some of the French in what is now part of Canada continued to cause problems because they considered themselves French and also were Catholic. The colonists moved to Louisiana which was then French. I think the British arranged to transport them as they were considered troublesome and Catholic. There already were French in the French Louisiana Colony. In the early 1800s Napolean agreed to sell the Louisiana territory to the US for $15,000,000 dollars. The area comprised a large chunk of the American midwest. There is still a strong French influence in Louisiana today. 49 states have a legal system based on English Common Law, Louisiana has a legal system based on the Napoleonic Code.

Since the map only shows languages other than English and Spanish it does not show Spanish in the southwestern states. Again, the area had native speakers of Spanish before it became part of the US. The area was large including California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado Texas and Oklahoma. Until 18?? this was part of New Spain, a Spanish colony. I seem to recall that the Royal Governor ruled from a base in Santa Fe (now in New Mexico). After a series of disputes the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo ceded the areas to the US with the US paying $15,000,000 to Mexico. (Mexico had become independent of Spain) The US was required that the right to speak and do business in Spanish, keep their rights as Catholics and required that all persons owning property would retain title to their property. In 185? the Gadsden Purchase transferred additional land from Spain comprising the southern bits of Arizona and New Mexico.

And you forget to mention Detroit....that's why so many streets there are French-ish named...

Interesting post, thanks.
To save anyone else the trouble of looking it up -
Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo 1848
Gadsden Purchace 1854
 
Given another Trump ally (George Nader) has been charged with child sex offences is there a low that Trumpettes have before they get what is going on? Really, your POTUS looks like he's a baby fucke r and you have no morals.

But of course, perhaps that's why the GOP is so fascinated and adamant about the anti abortion thing. More girlfriends.

As far as Nader goes, I think you'll find that Trump:

1) Thinks he's a very, very fine person then
2) Never even knew the guy,
3) Never spoke to him,
4) Never met him and finally
5) Thinks he's a loser.

All of those statements being made by Trump in the space of less than 24 hours and probably even in the same speech.

That's basically what he says of everyone who leaves his administration..

thanks. I should have checked those but was tired and went by memory.

Really? You're - and you may not know this but it's true, believe me - probably the only person on the entire planet to have noticed that. But we'll see, we'll see.
 
It's bad when the Germans label you a Nazi.



EDIT: removed an errant apostrophe (that was hacked in there by a Q agent obviously).

But there were fine people on both sides?

I wonder if he has the historical awareness of fascist Germany? Genuinely, not point scoring. He doesn't seem to like books.

While I doubt very much Trump is a Nazi, he certainly is a Right Wing American Nationalist, but above that he is a fanatical capitalist who has been brought up on the myth that the USA is the best country in the world and superior to all others and that any form of socialism is an evil communist plot. He is the bastard child of 100 years of Capitalist propaganda. ;)

The only thing dumber than a Trump is a Trump supporter.

Trying to prove he's not a racist by saving a rapper most people haven't heard of from a medieval prison in the well known third world shithole Sweden. I wonder if Trump thinks they are going to make him sweep the forest floor while he's there.

ASAP Rocky’s ”inhumane” jail conditions in Sweden: Turkey and rhubarb pie

The rappers lawyer in Sweden has declined to comment on the prison conditions, I can't imagine why.
 
His desperate idiotic lies are going to get someone killed.

After spending much of the week defending his racist assertion that four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” to the countries “from which they came,” President Donald Trump on Friday falsely stated that they had used the anti-Semitic slur “evil Jews” and have “call[ed] the people of our country and our country ‘garbage.’ ”
None of the congresswomen in question—Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib—have ever been reported to say either of those things.

“[It’s] horrible what they’ve said about our country, these congresswomen,” Trump told reporters outside of the White House. “They can’t call our country and our people ‘garbage.’ They can’t be anti-Semitic. They can’t talk about ‘evil Jews,’ which is what they say. ‘Evil Jews.’ ”

As noted, both of these accusations are completely false. The president seems to be attempting to reference a 2012 tweet from Omar that was surfaced by RNC spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington earlier this week. Prior to arriving in Congress and in the midst of the November 2012 conflict between Israel and Gaza, in which between 57 and 105 Palestinian civilians were killed and four Israeli civilians were killed, Omar tweeted she wanted people to “see the evil doings of Israel.” Harrington seems to have conflated this statement with calling all Jews “evil,” and the president has apparently conflated that with using the anti-Semitic slur “evil Jews.”

While neither Omar nor any of the three other members in question have been reported to use that phrase, Trump has generalized that lawful migrants who arrive here on family visas “can be truly evil.”
Trump repeated a version of his other false claim, that the four congresswomen had called “our country and our people ‘garbage,’ ” at least six times during his talk with reporters on Friday. He had already used that line at a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday, the same rally at which his crowd started chanting “send her back” after a reference to Omar.

The Raleigh News & Observer helpfully published a fact-check of Trump’s claim in Wednesday’s speech that Ocasio-Cortez “described contemporary America, that’s you, that’s me, that’s all of us, as ‘garbage.’ ” As the News & Observer noted on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez said something else entirely:
We’ve strayed so far away from what has really made us powerful, and just, and good, and equitable, and productive. All of these [progressive economic policies] sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. This idea of 10 percent better from garbage shouldn’t be what we settle for.​

So, Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t calling America and its people “garbage,” or even the president “garbage.” She was saying economic conditions for too many are “garbage,” due to what she sees as overly business-friendly policies from both political parties.

Trump himself has used the word “garbage” to criticize aspects of the U.S.—in 2014, he tweeted, of President Barack Obama, “Everything he touches turns to garbage!” When a reporter on Friday afternoon noted that Trump himself has been very critical of the United States in the past—for instance, he once also defended Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin by saying, “There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent?—Trump gave a rambling, non-responsive answer.

“I believe all people are great people. I believe everyone is great. But I love our country and I’m representing our country,” he said. The president then concluded with more inaccurate ranting: “You can’t speak about our country the way [of] those four congresswomen. They said ‘garbage.’ They say things about Israel that’s so bad, I’m not even going to repeat them right now. They can’t get away with that act.”
