NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Next year, you may have to write MMXVII, instead of 2017 when dating your checks and documents. That is, if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.
The Republican presidential candidate has unveiled yet another of his plans to make America great again.
He has repeatedly advocated to ban all Muslims from entering the United States as his way of making Americans safe from the dangers of terrorism. Today, he went further by proposing that Americans convert from using Arabic numerals to Roman numbers.
“We need to rid our country of every single vintage of the Muslim world,” Trump said, “and what better way to do that than by shifting how we write numbers to the way the more friendly Romans do.”
