Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and owner of X, took to Twitter to express his support for the new president of Argentina. Musk is not only one of the richest men in the world, with a fortune of 241 billion dollars, but also an influential figure in global politics. He responded to a tweet celebrating Javier Milei’s victory with the Gadsden flag, an icon of libertarian thought. This is not the first time that Musk has weighed in on local politics; he had previously commented on Tucker Carlson’s interview with Milei, which he found “interesting”.
Other international figures also shared their opinions on Milei’s victory in the Argentine election. Tucker Carlson tweeted a photo with the president-elect, and Kimdotcom, founder of Megaupload, posted a video about the issue.
The founder of Mercado Libre, Marcos Galperín, also expressed his views on Milei’s win and even crossed paths with Peronist councilor Agustín Ballardes during the election. Meanwhile, Sergio Massa conceded defeat in the runoff against Javier Milei and called for a peaceful transition to power on December 10th. He emphasized the importance of certainty and guarantees for political stability in Argentina.
As news of the election unfolded, various businesses and organizations were discussed alongside court records and arrest records. These topics were closely linked to the political developments surrounding Milei’s victory and discussions around his policies as he begins his presidency.
