Hard Twitter exchange between Vidal and Santoro due to inflation

A hard crossover through Twitter led the disputed nationals of Together for Change María Eugenia Vidal and the Front of All Leandro Santoro. After the Indec revealed that inflation in December was 3.8% and accumulated 50.9% during 2021, which was close to the 53.8% that was registered in the last year of the presidency of Mauricio Macri, political referents used social networks to analyze the data and ended up in a strong clash.

The former governor of Buenos Aires was the first to write “data kills story”. Then he made an analysis: “Argentina is among the five countries with the highest inflation in the world. This continues to be a chronic problem in our country: since the return to democracy, we have had an average inflation of 48%, not counting hyper. This government not only has an expected inflation of over 50% for this year, but it also borrows at a faster rate than that of the government of Cristina Kirchner and Mauricio Macri”.

In addition, he added that the rise in prices is “the worst of the taxes”, explaining that “it is the one that most harms those who have the least.” He also spoke of foreign debt, calling it the “daughter of the deficit,” and assured that “there is no way to stop borrowing or stop generating more inflation if we don’t have an economic plan that sets us a serious course. It is time for them to put the verse aside and present to Congress a serious economic plan that can be sustained over time. Enough of lies, excuses and always blaming others.

Santoro picked up the glove from Vidal’s tweet thread and responded by mentioning her with a “data kills story”, where he released figures for 2019, when Macri lost the elections. The referent of the ruling party recalled that three years ago inflation was 53.9% and economic activity fell by 2.1%. In that he explained: “Inflation must be lowered. But in a context of a pandemic, renegotiating a debt not contracted by us, with exchange rate pressures resulting from capital flight and rising international inflation, in 2021 Argentina grew 11%”. And he went further by saying that “in 2019 there was more inflation with a recession.”

Of course, the users of the little bird’s social network jumped on the “crack” train and gave their opinions on both Twitter threads.
