“Another stage is opening up in Argentina. Not easy, but necessary. Reality check for socialism: You can’t eat words,” said Marcial Padilla, director of ConParticipación, a Mexican pro-life and pro-family platform.
Félix Maradiaga, former presidential candidate in Nicaragua and president of the Foundation for a Free Nicaragua, also congratulated Milei and emphasized that “his victory is a breath of fresh air in the Americas, which heralds better times in the face of the absurdities of socialism that has so impoverished Argentines and other nations on the continent. Our best wishes! Long live freedom!”
“A turn to the right in Argentina. Good for them! This guy’s great!” said Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, a medical doctor and senior policy adviser for The Catholic Association in the United States, wrote on X Nov. 19.
“This guy’s going to drive the Left crazy. It’s going to be fun to see it. Congratulations, Argentina!” she added.

Hours before the polls closed, the Mexican pro-life activist and Catholic filmmaker Eduardo Verástegui expressed his support for the now president-elect of Argentina. “Freedom advances today in Argentina. My support for Javier Milei,” he wrote.
If he can get enough signatures to get on the ballot, Verástegui will run as an independent candidate in Mexico’s 2024 presidential election.
