NYC Mayor Eric Adams (D): "I don't want to do the [Bill] de Blasio version that butchers the Spanish language."

REPORTER: “I wonder if you speak, Spanish, if you're learning Spanish, you claim to use it in news conferences. I’m interested, however poorly, to reach Spanish language speakers.”

MAYOR ADAMS: “Hola, Me casa, su casa. Yes, I do. Every day, I practice and I love this Spanish language and lot of my staff who are Spanish speakers, like Gladys who has been with me all these years, they teach me the phrases over and over again. But I don't want to do the De Blasio versions that butchers the Spanish language. I want you to give it to respect that it deserves and I'm going to pop out one day and give you all of the practice that I had and this this way I can give it to justice that it deserves.”
