Republican presidential candidate and former technology executive Carly Fiorina said English is the official language of the United States during an interview with CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday.

In case anyone forgot, there is no federal official language.

The topic of America’s official language resurfaced because former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been using his fluent Spanish on the campaign trail in order to woo Hispanic voters.

“I admire the fact that Jeb Bush is multilingual. I admire the fact that so many people are multilingual, and I also think English is the official language of the United States,” Fiorina told CNN.

Then she pivoted into talking about how “the border” has been unsecured for 25 years.
