- Experts: His translation and grammar is not exact
Baldwin’s translation is imprecise, CNN Russian experts said.
The first word means “Make,” the second is “America,” in Russian, the third word is “Fantastic” or “Great” and the last word is “Again,” they said. But the phrase contains improper grammar.
Former CNN Moscow bureau chief and CNN Contributor Jill Dougherty said this is not at all how Russians would say it or write it and wouldn’t be surprised if Baldwin came up with the phrase by plugging it into Google Translate.
“In fact, we just Google translated it, and it’s translated exactly like on the cap,” Dougherty said.
