Javier Milei: the 15 most shocking phrases of the new president of Argentina

Javier Milei was sworn in this Sunday, December 10, as president of Argentina and he broke with the tradition of giving the inauguration speech before the Legislative Assembly, so he decided to do it outside the building in front of his supporters.

The new head of state described his message as “the inheritance” he received regarding the current economic situation from his predecessor Alberto Fernández (2019-2023).

In that line, Milei started his speech: “Today a new era begins in Argentina. “We end a long and sad history of decadence and decline, and begin the path of rebuilding our country.”

Below are the most important phrases from his message.

The most impressive phrases from Javier Milei’s speech

  • No government has received a worse inheritance than what we are receiving. Kirchnerism, which in its beginnings boasted of having twin surpluses, today leaves us with twin deficits of 17% of GDP.”
  • “That is the legacy they leave us, an inflation of 15,000% annually, which we are going to fight tooth and nail to eradicate.”

  • Today begins an era of peace and prosperity, an era of freedom and progress. A new era begins in Argentina; Today a long era of decline ends and we begin the reconstruction of the country.”
  • “There’s no money. The conclusion is that there is no alternative to adjustment, there is no alternative to shock. Naturally, this will have a negative impact on the level of activity, employment, real wages, and the number of poor and indigent people.”
