Axel Kicillof, Governor of the Province of Buenos Aires
The governor of the province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, joined in the criticism with which Kirchnerism reacted to the announcement that Mauricio Macri will teach in the United States. “I’m a little atonic, I didn’t have it teaching economics,” he ironized.
This Wednesday the former president reported that he accepted an invitation to participate in an academic leadership program in an economics chair. The news transcends in the midst of the controversy over his judicial situation since this Thursday he was expected in an investigation to which he will not appear.
Macri accepted the proposal of “The Adam Smith Center for Economic Freedom” (Florida International University) to participate in a chair in his capacity as former President. It will be in the United States for a large part of the first half of 2022, particularly in the State of Florida.
In this context, Kicillof pointed ironically against the former president. “I’m a bit stunned, I didn’t have Macri teaching economics,” he said in dialogue with C5N. The Buenos Aires governor recalled that in his book, the PRO’s reference “said that during the time he governed, the economy outsourced it to area officials, he said that they even ignored him and now he seems to have become a specialist.”
Meanwhile, he expressed his suspicions since the proposal “coincides with judicial issues.” Finally, he returned to chicanery and assured that “if I had the opportunity, I would not take the classes” dictated by the former president.

In this way, Kicillof responded in tune with his political boss, Cristina Kirchner. The vice president gave her opinion on the matter this Wednesday, minutes before entering the session that took place in the Senate. “The truth is, I don’t know whether to laugh at Macri giving classes or cry for his mockery of Justice,” he posted on his Twitter account.
The current Vice President referred to the fact that last Friday the Justice of Dolores had summoned Macri to an investigatory statement. They accuse him of having spied on relatives of the crew of the ARA San Juan. They expect him this Thursday, October 7, but he will not attend. In his environment they say that he was never notified of the summons. “Everyone knows that Macri moves between his home in Acassuso and the family farm Los Abrojos. However, the judge never sent the notification to these addresses ”, they assured.
Carlos Díaz-Rosillo, director of the think tank and former adviser to Donald Trump, was the one who formally invited the PRO leader to give classes through a letter: “His experience as president of Argentina and his leadership in the implementation of free markets offer the perfect combination of the type of leader that we are looking for to participate in this scholarship ”.
Macri himself referred to the call on his social networks: “It will be an honor to join the Adam Smith Center in 2022 to interact and be a mentor for future leaders in the field of public policy design, with a special focus on progress. from Latin America”.
On the other hand, Axel Kicillof charged against the opposition for hardening his speech after the victory in the PASO. “Macri said that if we lose the elections we are going to have to go, then Vidal appeared – who until recently was supposed to be one of the doves of Together for Change – and hardened his speech saying that they could the president of the Chamber of Deputies if they win in November. They say that if they win, they have decided to generate modifications that will greatly complicate basic issues of government action, ”warned Cristina Kirchner’s former Minister of Economy.
“We do not have to respond to the provocations of the opposition,” added Kicillof, who stated that “the threats” from Together for Change may be part of “an electoral strategy”, since “they may lose votes to the right.” In that sense, he made it a priority to continue focused on the health issue and thinking about the reactivation of the economy. “There are almost 9 million vaccinated with second doses, it allows us to dedicate ourselves to recovering what was lost, what the pandemic took away,” he declared but pointed out that “it is not yet a resolved issue.” “It takes time to come out of the pandemic and recover economically,” he concluded.
