The president defended his economic management after showing that the dictatorial governmentssupported by “liberal and conservative” policies, they were in his opinion the main responsible for the current economic imbalances.
The president responded to Jorge Bergolgio after the harsh statements made during the interview granted to The Associated Press. “In the year 55, when I finished my secondary school, the poverty level was 5%, today poverty is at 52%. What happened? Bad administration, bad policies”, Francisco had questioned.
Faced with this, Fernández clarified in the first place that “while Perón governed, another was the reality of Argentina”.
“When dictatorial governments began to take place, always governed by liberal and conservative logic, they generated what they generated,” Alberto Fernández argued in a dialogue with radio The Red.

“Alberto Fernández is leading this country and the government management and he does it together with his government team and all the ministers. We feel that after having gone through very difficult times, where the foundations had to be laid, we are reaching the time to start reaping what was sown. in the midst of storms such as the pandemic and debt”.

“The four years of macrismo were triggers for a phenomenal multiplication of poverty”Aníbal Fernández specified and added: “From 2019 fines, when he assumes Alberto Fernández, he is not responsible for the pandemicwhich is what slows down the world’s activity and generates a number of inexplicable poor people”.
“This whole situation is what Francisco is marking, he is explaining it,” the security minister demonstrated.
