Argentine President Javier Milei wrote Sunday on social media about intimidating messages and death threats he had been receiving. He showed drawings of himself, one of them captioned: “The noise will be the tomb of the regime.” Milei also questioned reporters “who joined the wave of violence.”

Another of the threats features a man with Milei's face hanging by his feet: “before it is too late.”

“Let's see where those journalists who joined that wave of violence against me are condemning [this]... I almost have no doubt that after throwing a stone they will hide their hand,” Milei said.

The social media account “Escuela Austríaca de Economía” denounced receiving “messages of this type, where Milei appears dead or with messages like: we are going to kill liberals, we will not rest until we see Milei dead, etc.,” it was explained.

“Although I take this kind of things from those who send them, that is, from imbeciles, sometimes I have to be a bit wary,” Milei insisted as he mentioned those “democrats who always branded me as anti-democratic.”

Commenting in a post on March 24 of some aggressions and intimidating messages she received, Vice President Victoria Villarruel wrote: “Love overcomes hate... women attacking another woman. Threats and violence, scatological and sexual concepts to compensate for the lack of arguments after 40 years of a single narrative. They only have the insult left; arguments and historical truth are on this side.”
