And he said to me, «Lula, I have no problem with what the right will say. I came to be in solidarity with you because I think he’s falling victim to the biggest political lie ever in Latin America,» he added.
Dear @LulaOficial, your thanks please and comfort me, but the defence of democracy should not be an exception or an attitude with which to speculate politically or electorally. I hug you in the distance and hopefully I can do it soon in person. pic.twitter.com/JrulQk5Ja8 — Alberto Fernández (@alferdez)
