An aide to President Trump promised Tuesday that the White House will soon restore a Spanish-language website, which went dark after inauguration day.

"We're just building up," said Helen Aguirre Ferre, director of media affairs. "It's just day two on the job.”

Aguirre Ferre, a former bilingual media personality who headed Spanish-language communications for the Republican National Committee before joining Trump's White House, said the new administration is building out more content in both English and Spanish.

Trump criticized opponents in the Republican primary for communicating in Spanish. But Aguirre Ferre said the removal of a link offering Spanish translation on the White House website was not deliberate.
