The new president stated that in terms of security, “Argentina has become a bloodbath”that one of the most important cities in the country – in an implicit allusion to Rosário – was “hijacked” by drug trafficking and violence, that citizens were “abandoned” by the political class and that only 3% of crimes carry some type of sentence.
“The ‘go, go’ of criminals is over,” he promised as the crowd shouted “Po-li-cia, poli-cia!”
In social matters, Milei described that “half of the population is poor, with the social fabric completely broken”Therefore, around twenty million Argentines “cannot live a decent life” and six million children and young people go to bed hungry, walk barefoot in the streets or have fallen into drugs.

In terms of healththe president said that the “system is completely collapsed”why there are “destroyed” hospitalsdoctors who charge “a pittance” and lack basic health services, a situation that, in his opinion, caused during the coronavirus pandemic Argentina 130 thousand dead, when there could have been only 30 thousand.
