Economist Javier Milei, a cable news fixture who was elected to the Argentine Congress riding a wave of anti-socialist sentiment in 2021, was elected the nation’s president on Sunday.

Milei will take office on December 10.

Milei campaigned as a libertarian, capitalist anti-socialist, leading his young political movement, Liberty Advances, against the long-standing Peronist socialist establishment. As a Latin American libertarian, he also took socially conservative positions that do not align with the common understanding of mainstream libertarianism in the United States, such as opposing the legalization of abortion and discouraging business dealings with communist countries, including one of Argentina’s top trade partners, China.

As of Sunday evening, with over 94% of the votes counted, Milei had received over 55% of the vote, compared to just over 44% for his socialist rival, Sergio Massa, the current Minister of Economics. Mass has already conceded the election Sunday evening, before the official results were even announced.

The landslide victory was especially stunning for Milei, since Massa had defeated Milei in the first round of voting on October 22.

Breitbart explained:

Milei will succeed Massa’s boss, current President Alberto Fernández, under whose leadership the country has experienced an unprecedented economic crisis, fueling skyrocketing inflation, joblessness, and social anxiety. Fernández chose not to run for reelection and the presumed candidate expected to replace him, current Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, also chose not to run after being convicted of corruption crimes in late 2022.

Liberal media headlines are all echoing the same theme, criticizing Milei as a “far-right outsider,” and comparing him to Donald Trump.

CNN wrote:

Javier Milei has won Argentina’s presidential elections in provisional results, wrenching his country to the right with a bombastic anti-establishment campaign that drew comparisons to former US President Donald Trump – all against the backdrop of one of the world’s highest inflation rates.

Milei has reportedly stated that his two main allies will be Israel and the United States, and has run on an anti-woke, anti-socialist, pro-nationalist agenda.

He has also promised to make the U.S. dollar an official Argentine currency, and eliminate the Argentine Central Bank, calling it a scam.

In one video posted on social media, Milei declares while campaigning that he will get rid of all the leftist departments in the government, including the “Ministry of Culture,” the “Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development,” “Ministry of Gender and Diversity,” and more.

“OUT!” he declares, yanking each label off a presentation board and throwing them on the ground, one by one.

After winning his election, Milei celebrated his victory in a post on X by predicting that former U.S. President Donald Trump will win in 2024, and former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will re-take his seat again in 2026.

Bolsonaro offered his congratulations, writing in a post on X:

– Congratulations to the Argentine people for the victory with @JMilei. Hope shines again in South America.

– May these good winds reach the United States and Brazil so that honesty, progress and freedom return to all of us.

– Jair Bolsonaro.

Trump also congratulated Milei in a post on Truth Social. He wrote: “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!”

Argentines are celebrating in the streets:

Below is interesting commentary from X user Pavol Lupták:

From the center of Buenos Aires, I warmly congratulate all Argentines on the result of their democratic elections (although I am not a fan).

The voter turnout here was really high (76%).

Before you start reading the European media’s bullshit about Milei being an ultra-right-wing fascist who wants to establish a dictatorship, study his electoral program (especially the economic one).

To vote for his opposition (Massa) was to vote for a continuation of the dramatic economic decline and hyperinflation that Argentina has been facing for decades (Massa was directly responsible for this as Minister of Economy).

Yes, many Argentines voted for Milei out of desperation because they had nothing left to lose – socialists like Massa have ruined their lives with hyperinflation and made Argentina the country with the worst economic decline in Latin America (worse than Venezuela’s at the moment).

European politicians, as forged socialists, supported Massa, of course, because it is inconceivable to them that Argentina could become a model of a minimal, lean, and better-functioning state – Milei plans to abolish most of the state, fire most civil servants, abolish most ministries, and abolish most taxes and stop inflation by dollarisation.

When the European media tell you that Milei is a populist, know that populism in Argentina at the moment means abolishing all social packages, abolishing the dysfunctional public health service, and introducing market prices without state subsidies.

Populism in Milei’s case means that he wants to abolish all social benefits because Argentines have understood that state social benefits are the most expensive and have been paying for them for years through hyperinflation.

The populism of Milei means that he wants to end relations with socialist countries like Venezuela or China (for which European politicians, who only prattle on about the rights of the Uighurs, have no balls).

Yes, Milei is an emotionally unstable person and has many dark sides (he is in favor of banning abortion because he considers a person’s life from the moment of conception, and he is against drugs because he thinks their legalization would burden the public health service, which he plans to abolish). Therefore, he has no clear support among libertarians.

It is not at all certain that he will be able to get his radical agenda through. Many people think not.

Unless he succeeds in dollarising Argentina and greatly curtailing collapsing socialism, the ideas of the minimal state may be transferred to other Latin American socialist states.

The election of Milei is a demonstration that most people in Argentina understand that the state is not the solution, but the main problem. That socialism does not work and has failed completely in Argentina.

It should also be a clear signal to the economically stagnant EU that continuing with tax increases, inflation, new regulations and other encroachments on the freedom of Europeans is a road to hell.

The Argentinians have already figured that out.
