Former President Donald Trump along with a whole host of other online conservative influencers celebrated the victory of far-right outside Javier Milei in Argentina’s presidential election.
Provisional results on Sunday night showed Milei defeating his rival Sergio Massa with over 55% of the votes, according to CNN. Massa conceded the election later in the evening, congratulating Milei on his victory. He is viewed as a bombastic right-wing outsider in Argentina politics, who campaigned on an anti-establishment platform.
Trump took to Truth Social to congratulate the self-described libertarian with the message, “MAKE ARGENTINA GREAT AGAIN!”
“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,” the president wrote to his followers.
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson shared a photo of himself with Milei after the results were announced, while the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro noted it was “awesome news.”

Just a century ago, Argentina was one of the ten wealthiest countries in the world. Today’s Argentina suffers 124% inflation & loses economic migrants to other countries. Congratulations to Javier Milei. Now the hard part begins. May the spirits of Mises & Hayek be with you. pic.twitter.com/UVZVcZtI1e
