Javier Milei’s victory in the Argentine election has sparked a flurry of comments and reactions from international figures, including Elon Musk, Tucker Carlson, Kimdotcom, and Marcos Galperín. Musk, founder of Tesla and owner of X, responded to a tweet celebrating Milei’s victory with the Gadsden flag, an icon of libertarian thought. This is not the first time that Musk has referred to local politics, as he had previously commented on Tucker Carlson’s interview with Milei.
Tucker Carlson also weighed in on Milei’s victory by tweeting a photo with the president-elect. Kimdotcom, founder of Megaupload, also tweeted about the issue with a video by Javier Milei. Meanwhile, Marcos Galperín made his views known by responding to Javier Milei’s victory in the runoff with Sergio Massa and also crossing paths with Agustín Ballardes during the election.
Sergio Massa 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. As news unfolded around businesses and organizations such as court records, arrest records, legal services, local business directories were also being discussed as they were intertwined with political events surrounding election results.
