Milei is fighting against the cancer of communism and Biden needs to ally himself

The influential Republican US senator Marco Rubio, member of important committees of the upper house and expert on relations between the United States and Latin America, said Clarion, which was opposed by President Javier Milei, was “the cancer of communism” and that the government of Joe Biden Argentina should be prioritized as an ally.

The senator from the state of Florida, who is vice president of the Intelligence Committee and senior member of the Foreign Relations Committee, answered some questions from this reporter about his country’s relationship with the new Argentine government.

He noted that “one of the most worrisome challenges we face as a region is the growing threat posed by China, Russia, and Iran. It is depressing that dictatorships such as Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua serve as bastions of evil for Beijing, Moscow, and Tehran.

In that sense, he added, “President Milei emphasized his desire to fight the cancerous threats caused by communism, and it is important for President Biden to choose to put America’s allies first instead of oppressors.

Rubio He was very critical of Kirchnerism and even signed letters addressed to the White House to sanction former president and former vice president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and some of her officials for corruption, as it has done with other former Latin American leaders. So far, their requests, which were also initiated by other legislators, have not been heard.

Milei’s arrival has excited US congressmen, especially Republicans. Regarding the new government of Argentina, Rubio pointed out that “it is important to see the position of President Milei regarding the BRICS,” the group that is made up of, among others, China and in which the libertarian refuses to join.

“Also, “it is important to know that we have an ally in the Southern Cone that is supporting Israel and Ukraine at a crucial moment,he added.

The relationship with the United States is important for Milei; he specifically said that he wants it to be his main ally, along with Israel. Asked about how Argentina can contribute to that alliance and how Washington can help our country, Rubio said “two main issues that the Biden Administration must prioritize in our bilateral relationship with the new government in Argentina are the same development of. security issues such as strengthening our commercial relationship on issues such as lithium.

Rubio announced a few days ago his support for Donald Trump in the Republican race, which is about to be explained. The former American president is a reference for Milei, and the tycoon in turn dedicates admirable tweets to him.

Rubio said that the two may be similar because they are “political outsiders.”. Asked about what the bilateral relationship would be like if Trump wins the White House in November, Rubio said the relationship between the two leaders “will be narrower because, in the previous administration of Trump, Latin America and the Caribbean were a main issue.
