Milei’s Win Signals Globalism Backlash: The Resurgence Of Anti-Globalism

According to former Gov. Mike Huckabee, the election of conservative leader Javier Milei as Argentina’s president-elect signifies a growing acknowledgment that “common sense needs to get a lot more common than it has been in government.”

Huckabee identifies a trend of anti-globalist candidates regaining power in the United States following the upcoming election.

Speaking to Newsmax, Huckabee stated on Tuesday, “We have people who think that government spending is the way to prosperity. Wake Up America. It’s proven to be a disaster. You can’t have open borders. You can’t destroy your own culture, language, and everything about your country and somehow expect to survive and prosper. People are sick of it.”

Javier Milei secured victory in the recent presidential runoff, capturing 56% of the vote, surpassing Peronist Economy Minister Sergio Massa, who garnered 44%. Milei’s inauguration is scheduled for December 10, and he has committed to implementing measures such as closing the central bank, abandoning the peso, and implementing spending cuts.

Huckabee dismissed the media’s characterization of Milei as a far-right extremist, asserting that such labeling is baseless.

“He’s not far-right or an extremist. He’s simply a person who believes in personal liberty, and he believes that government ought to be more limited than the Argentine government has been. That’s a government that has bankrupted the people of that wonderful country,” Huckabee explained.

Meanwhile, Milei announced that former President Donald Trump plans to visit Buenos Aires for a meeting with him, a development that Huckabee believes could provide a boost for both individuals.

Huckabee expressed his excitement, stating that he is “thrilled to see this kind of alliance across the globe.”

He added, “I think with both Donald Trump and with Milei, it’s a great reminder that the press and the establishment and the deep state get it wrong over and over again, and they underestimate the power of the people.”
