As the world waits for the new president of Argentina to take office, Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and owner of X, has weighed in on the election results. In a tweet, he congratulated Javier Milei on his victory and included an image of the Gadsden flag, which is an icon of libertarian thought. This isn’t the first time that Musk has commented on local politics; he had previously expressed interest in Tucker Carlson’s interview with Milei.
Other international figures have also shared their thoughts on Milei’s victory. Tucker Carlson tweeted a photo with the president-elect and Kimdotcom, founder of Megaupload, posted a video about the issue. Additionally, Marcos Galperín, founder of Mercado Libre, expressed his views via Twitter after Javier Milei won the runoff against Sergio Massa. Galperín also responded to a Peronist councilor from Lanús whom he encountered during the election.
As the news broke about Milei’s victory in the election, various businesses and organizations were discussed online. Topics ranged from court records and arrest records to legal services and local business directories. These topics were intricately linked to the unfolding political events and discussions surrounding the election results.
Despite his loss in the presidential race, Sergio Massa recognized his defeat in front of Javier Milei and called for a smooth transition to occur on December 10th when he will leave office as president. He hoped that Argentina would move past its current state of tension and emphasized that it was up to the newly elected leader to ensure certainty and guarantees regarding political stability in Argentina.
