On May 19, Milei became the star of the ultra event that Vox organized in Madrid with far-right organizations from around the world.

“Global elites do not realize how destructive it is to implement the ideas of socialism. They do not know what kind of people are screwed to power or what abuses it can generate. Like when he has a corrupt woman, she gets dirty and takes five days to think about it,” she stated.

The Government called its ambassador in Buenos Aires for consultations and, subsequently, summoned the Argentine ambassador in Madrid, Roberto Bosch, and repeatedly demanded that the Argentine president apologize. “It is not acceptable for a head of state to go to the capital of another country to insult its institutions and interfere in its internal affairs,” said the Spanish Foreign Minister, José Manuel Albares, who recalled that the Government made available of Milei both the Torrejón air base and the necessary security for his trip, in which he did not meet with either the king or any representative of the Executive. “It is a unique case in the history of international relations,” he added.

Days later, the Government officially announced its decision to permanently withdraw the ambassador in Buenos Aires, María Jesús Alonso, due to the attitude of the Argentine president, Javier Milei, who not only did not apologize for his insults to Pedro Sánchez and his wife. , but he influenced them by calling Pedro Sánchez a “coward.”
