Don Jr. congratulated Nayib Bukele on his second term in office and took a swipe at Joe Biden

Donald Trump Jr. was in El Salvador for the inauguration of President Nayib Bukele, who won a landslide victory in February, securing 85% of the vote.

In a video posted to Twitter, Don Jr. congratulated Bukele behind the scenes and took a big swipe at Joe Biden.

“An amazing accomplishment,” Don Jr. said.

“And you do it all without having to jail your political opponents, which I like.”

“We don’t jail the opposition,” Bukele replied.

I congratulated President @nayibbukele this morning for winning a second term and not even having to try to imprison his political opponents!

Bukele said “we don’t jail political opponents here.”

Bukele was sworn into office for a second time on Saturday night, taking the oath at the National Palace in San Salvador, in front of a huge crowd.

In attendance with Don Jr. was Argentina’s President Javier Milei, who had been visiting the US.

Bukele owes his tremendous popularity to his war on El Salvador’s gangs, which has seen violent crime almost disappear since he was elected in 2019. He has boasted of turning “the murder capital of the world, the world’s most dangerous country, into the safest country in the Western hemisphere.”

It’s reckoned that 120,000 people have been murdered in El Salvador over the last three decades, more than 75,000 who died in the country’s bloody civil war between 1980 and 1992.

Bukele has built the largest prison in Latin America to hold many of the 80,000 gang members he has arrested since he declared a state of emergency in the country in March 2022.

Despite his success, Bukele acknowledges that there are still tough times ahead.

The country still has “important problems,” he said from the Palace balcony at his inauguration, referring in particular to the country’s economy.

“In this new treatment to heal the economy perhaps we will also have to take bitter medicine… to be cured of the bad economy.”
