President Biden recently communicated with Argentina’s newly elected president, Javier Milei, to extend his congratulations on Milei’s electoral victory, as announced by the White House.

During the conversation, Biden praised the execution of the Argentinian election, highlighting it as a testament to the country’s robust democratic institutions. The two leaders discussed mutual priorities and the importance of strengthening the relationship between the United States and Argentina. A White House readout of the call also mentioned discussions on economic collaboration, regional cooperation, and shared concerns such as human rights, food security, and clean energy investments.

Milei, a right-wing populist and self-proclaimed “anarcho-capitalist,” secured a decisive win in the election, capturing 55.7% of the vote against Economy Minister Sergio Massa’s 44.3%. His victory represents a notable shift to the right in Argentine politics.

Former President Trump also congratulated Milei, expressing pride in the Argentinian leader’s triumph and drawing parallels between Milei and himself. Trump encouraged Milei to transform Argentina, echoing his own campaign slogan.

Milei, known for his television background, has been vocal about voter fraud and has expressed admiration for Trump. In his victory speech, Milei pledged the beginning of Argentina’s reconstruction.
