The Argentine government has been reacting today to the news that Donald Trump was elected to become the 45th US President of the United States after defeating favourite Hillary Clinton. According to a survey carried out by Poliarquia Consultores before the election, few Argentines support Trump. In the survey carried out among 1170 people across 40 localities in the country, 72% of the country wanted Clinton to win, and only 6% wanted Trump. The survey also asked which participant they thought would have a more positive impact for Argentina, and whilst an overwhelming 62% said Clinton would, for Trump it was a mere 5%. Before the elections took place, Malcorra gave an interview describing Trump as “worrying”.
