The United States Should Stand by Argentina’s Milei

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)

December 11, 2023


President Joe Biden should welcome [Javier Milei’s inauguration as president of Argentina] because friends are hard to come by in Latin America right now. The Biden Administration is doing a great job of alienating pro-U.S. leaders through criticism and neglect. Meanwhile, many of the most powerful and influential countries to our south are run by self-described Marxists….

Milei, by comparison, is a breath of fresh air. During his campaign for president, the mainstream media here…paid too little attention to his commitment to align with the United States and its staunchest ally, Israel, as an unequivocal member of the free world. Milei also pledged not to join BRICS, the Beijing-led trade group created to empower China….

These efforts should win Washington’s attention and support. Specifically, President Biden should use the United States’ influence at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to help President Milei restructure Argentina’s debt….

Beyond this, the Biden Administration should partner with Milei’s administration to advance our joint security efforts and mutual prosperity…. [T]he United States stands to benefit from a closer trade relationship with the world’s third largest source of lithium, an essential material for building everything from weapons to cell phones.

President Biden…seems more eager to appease dictators like Maduro than work with conservatives like Milei. However, our duty is to our nation…. [W]e must join hands with Argentina’s new president, and our president needs to lead by example.
