The recent election in Argentina has attracted the attention of various global figures, including Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and owner of X. In response to a tweet celebrating Javier Milei’s victory with the Gadsden flag, an icon of libertarian thought, Musk expressed his support for the new president. This is not the first time that Musk has commented on local politics, as he had previously found Tucker Carlson’s interview with Milei “interesting.”
Other international figures also weighed in on Milei’s victory in the Argentine election. Tucker Carlson tweeted a photo with the president-elect, and Kimdotcom, founder of Megaupload, tweeted about the issue with a video by Javier Milei. Additionally, Marcos Galperín, founder of Mercado Libre, made his views known by tweeting after Javier Milei’s victory in the runoff with Sergio Massa and responding to a Peronist councilor from Lanús.
Sergio Massa, the presidential candidate of Unión por la Patria (UxP), recognized his defeat in the runoff against Javier Milei and called for a transition underway for the change of Government on December 10. He expressed hope that Argentina would abandon the climate of tension and emphasized the responsibility of the elected president to provide certainty and guarantees about the political, social, and economic functioning of Argentina.
