Former U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed his intent to visit Argentina and talk to the country’s new President-elect Javier Milei.
Milei’s office confirmed in a statement that Trump had reached out via a phone call. “The president-elect received a call … from Trump, who congratulated him and pointed out [that] his triumph by a wide margin … had a great impact on a global scale,” it said.
Trump himself celebrated Milei’s victory over outgoing Argentinian Economy Minister Sergio Massa through a video posted on Truth Social. “A very special congratulations to Milei on a great race for president of Argentina,” said the real estate mogul-turned-former chief executive. “I am very proud of you; you will turn your country around and truly Make Argentina Great Again.”
Eduardo Bolsonaro – the son of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro – facilitated the conversation between Milei and Trump. A Buenos Aires-based journalist reported this development through a post on the X platform.
“This meeting signifies an important moment for both leaders as they discuss their perspectives and policies on a global stage,” YourNews wrote. “Trump’s visit to Argentina is seen as part of the growing international interest in Milei’s administration and its potential impact on global politics.”
Trump’s conversation with Milei happened just hours after incumbent U.S. President Joe Biden congratulated the Argentinian president-elect on his victory. According to the White House, the two leaders discussed how to build a strong relationship between their countries.
Milei is set to be inaugurated on Dec. 10, but Trump isn’t expected to attend. This development was confirmed by a source close to the former U.S. president’s campaign. According to the source, a tight campaign schedule means Trump won’t be able to fly to Argentina.
“There’s nothing that’s currently planned,” they said. “With the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire and the rest of the primaries approaching so quickly, it is something that would be difficult in the short term.”
According to the Washington Times, Milei “has expressed his admiration of Trump in the past.”
“During a Fox News interview, Milei called on the former [U.S.] president to ‘continue with his fight against socialism, because he’s one of the few who fully understood that the battle is against socialism, that the battle is against the statists,'” the outlet remarked.
“Milei is a self-described ‘anarcho-capitalist’ and libertarian. Some of his social positions align him with conservative Republicans in the United States.”
Aside from Trump, he has also praised the erstwhile Brazilian president dubbed “the Trump of the Tropics” in an August interview with Bloomberg. He told the outlet that his relationship with Eduardo’s father, who served as president from 2019 to 2022, was “excellent.”
In contrast, Milei had nothing but sharp rebukes for Jair’s successor, current Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. This disdain also extended to Mexico’s Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Chile’s Gabriel Boric and Colombia’s Gustavo Petro. Despite being the three biggest economies in Latin America, the newly elected Argentinian president said he doesn’t have “socialist partners.” (Related: Frontrunner in Argentina’s presidential elections calls China an “assassin,” points to the country’s LACK OF FREEDOM.)
In the same interview, Milei admitted that he isn’t especially keen on being compared to Trump. Nevertheless, he left this statement when asked whether he would like Trump to return to the White House: “That’s up for Americans to decide.”
