Trump win would stall diplomatic moves
David Delacruz votes as his dog Bozco waits at City Hall in San Francisco yesterday. ARGENTINE FOREIGN Minister Susana Malcorra says a win by Republican Donald Trump in the US election would stall recent moves to improve relations between the countries.
Malcorra told Argentine television channel Todo Noticias that the conservative government of President Maurico Macri had opened a new phase of cooperation and trade with Washington after years of strained relations under former President Cristina Fernandez.
But she said Monday night that there might be a “big stop” in this process if Trump wins, and “depending on the results, there might be big changes” in US-Argentine relations.
The Argentine foreign minister said the “more closed, isolationist and xenophobic” model represented by the Republican candidate would have a major impact on the world and relations with Latin America.
