"He was afraid": Mauricio Macri's message after the suspension of Nicolás Maduro's trip to Argentina


The former president also stated that the Venezuelan president "realized that something is changing" in our country.

Mauricio Macri provided a sharp comment on Monday night

about the cancellation of Nicolás Maduro's trip

to Argentina, where he was going to participate in the CELAC summit.

"He was afraid," shot the former Argentine president, while the Venezuelan government attributed the decision to security reasons.


He realized that something is changing

in Argentina," added Macri in a brief post on Twitter.

On Sunday, when it seemed that the Venezuelan was on a flight to Buenos Aires, Macri published an extensive letter on Facebook.


Shame and Hope

" was the title of a critical letter in which he exposed the political ties between the government of Alberto Fernández and that of Maduro, in addition to his long-standing relationship with Kirchnerism.

This Monday afternoon, meanwhile, Venezuela officially reported that Maduro had given up traveling to our country due to

"a plan drawn up within the neo-fascist right

, whose objective is to carry out a series of attacks against our delegation headed by the President of the Republic.

"Venezuela is part of CELAC and Maduro is more than invited," Alberto Fernández had stated a day before, in an attempt to justify the presence of the Venezuelan in our country.


first sign of the suspension

of Maduro's trip was given by the dictator by surprisingly canceling the meeting he had scheduled with Lula.

At that time, the Brazilian government came out to report that it was because the Venezuelan had given up coming to Argentina, while at the Casa Rosada they insisted that the trip was confirmed.

Another indication was that

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Iván Gil arrived

in Buenos Aires this Monday afternoon along with three diplomats.

They arrived alone, on an official flight.

The uncertainty that existed at that point about Maduro's trip was also the subject of the joint press conference given by Alberto Fernández and Lula after 2:00 p.m. "I have no news that President Maduro is not coming," said the Argentine president.

For his part, the Brazilian president said: "I don't know if Maduro is going to come, but I was informed that he might not come."

Over the weekend, dozens of Venezuelan exiles protested in the Retiro neighborhood of Buenos Aires in repudiation of Maduro's visit to Argentina.

After leaving the CELAC summit, Maduro joined a demonstration called by Chavismo "against the blockade and international sanctions" in Caracas.

It was interpreted as an attempt to show strength, since it is not usual for him to march among the people.

From the Miraflores Palace, Maduro addressed the supporters who took to the streets.

In this framework, he sent greetings to the countries that will participate in the CELAC summit this Tuesday in Buenos Aires, but avoided referring to his decision not to attend that meeting.

smiles in privacy

The concrete thing is that, beyond his spicy comment on Twitter, Macri could not hide his smile in private when he found out that Maduro was not coming to Argentina.

The former Argentine president had just finished having lunch with Patricia Bullrich at her house in the country of Cumelén, in Villa La Angostura, along with their respective partners, Juliana Awada and Guillermo Yanco.

Bullrich, who submitted a request to the Argentine office of the DEA to arrest Maduro upon his eventual arrival in Argentina, for a complaint that he has in the United States as a result of an alleged link to a drug cartel, had expressed earlier networking.


Democracy has triumphed

! Dictators who violate human rights and drug traffickers cannot set foot in Argentina! We did what was necessary," said the PRO president.

And he concluded: "I am very happy that Maduro's drug trafficker does not come to our country. Also because the thousands of Venezuelans who had to emigrate to our homeland expelled for socialist delirium, avoided the offense of having to see how the government received them with honors to such a dictator".
