Former US President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to congratulate Javier Milei on his victory in the second round of the Argentine presidential elections. Milei emerged victorious in a race against leftist candidate Sergio Massa, amidst Argentina's ongoing struggles with high inflation and a surge in crime rates.

Trump's Words of Support

In his congratulatory message, Trump praised Milei's performance, stating, "Congratulations to Javier Milei on a great race for President of Argentina. The whole world was watching! I am very proud of you. You will turn your Country around and truly Make Argentina Great Again!"

Inauguration Date Set

Javier Milei's inauguration as the new President of Argentina is scheduled to take place on December 10. This comes after Milei managed to reverse his position in the second round, having initially come in second place in the first round. A second-round turnaround of this magnitude has only been achieved once before in 2015 by Mauricio Macri.

Milei's Pledge

In his first speech as the elected president, Milei made three key pledges. He emphasized his commitment to democracy, free trade, and peace, stating, "Our commitment is to democracy, free trade, and peace. We will work with all nations of the free world to help everyone build a better world."
