The day after he stepped aside in the electoral fight, Mauricio Macri expressed his
concern about the economic crisis
that the country is going through and issued a worrying warning regarding the government of the Frente de Todos.
During an interview on Miter radio, when asked if the Government reaches December, he replied
: "Nobody knows
. The level of deterioration is so deep, much worse than in 2015."
The former president stated that the Executive will leave a
"deficit that no one can finish calculating,"
which he estimated to be more than 10 points.
"It is a disaster that has never been seen," he said.
Then, he asked the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, for a favor.
"Even if for once think of something that is good for the future of Argentines, not this juggling to achieve one more patch, one more fan, that buries us further into the future," he said.
The former head of state once again appealed to the metaphor of the "time bomb" that the administration of President Alberto Fernández will leave for the next government, as was titled months ago in a statement from Together for Change that warned of the economic future .

"It's a bomb or a minefield. Getting out of the stocks is going to be very expensive and the truth is that there are no more dollars in the Central Bank, we are entering negative dollars, which means using people's dollar deposits," he said. .
In addition, he predicted that the next administration will have an "enormous" initial cost, because it will require high levels of explanation regarding the measures that will have to be taken in the first moments of government.
In this sense, he remarked that the next President of the Nation must have "courage", after the warning of some union leaders such as Hugo and Pablo Moyano, or Pablo Biró, "because they have already announced the bad guys who are coming back with the stones."
The reference is to the incidents that occurred on the outskirts of Congress on December 18, 2017, when it was in the Retirement Mobility facility proposed by the Cambiemos government and that since then the ruling party denounced that "14 tons" had been thrown of stones" against the security forces.
However, he warned that there is currently another conviction regarding Argentine society about the "consequences of populist waste."
"I feel that there is a different strength in Argentines and it gives us a real and great opportunity to change history and start a cycle of development, growth, a shared effort, recovering the culture of work, which -again- are not ideas macristas The culture of work, merit, personal effort, the value of the word, transparency, are values that are in humanity and that have been applied to all the countries that have done well when we have done badly ", he sentenced.
Macri maintained that it will take a lot of work to restore the path that he left in 2019, when he lost power, of a country without a deficit, better in the transparency ranking, which exported and with a single exchange rate.
