Faced with the questioning he received on social networks, the recent official said: “I had to get vaccinated because I do not live from politics or the State. To bill I need to give lectures throughout the country and abroad”.

He also argued that “These are the costs that I have to pay to continue defending the ideas of freedom beyond Argentina.” And he reiterated a campaign promise: “And as I promised, I will not charge my diet either, since I will raffle the same among the citizens”.
“This will be with an absolute process of transparency and within the framework of the public ethics law. I will not get a peso to the Argentines“Said the leader of Libertad Avanza.
The vaccines were received at the King Fahd mosque in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo and the second at the Vélez Sarsfield club. Milei plans to give conferences in Miami, New York and Washington DC, as well as give talks in Uruguay, Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and Spain.
