Renowned US political commentator and TV personality, Tucker Carlson, has dropped a significant hint about the potential rise of Bitcoin-friendly political leadership in South America. With the announcement of his upcoming interview with Javier Milei, a presidential candidate from Argentina, it is Carlson’s pro-Bitcoin stance that has caught the attention of the crypto community.
Javier Milei: The Next Bitcoin-Friendly Leader?
Javier Milei is considered the frontrunner for Argentina’s next presidency. As a Bitcoin-friendly candidate, his recent victory in a primary election coincided with a surge in Bitcoin’s price, piquing the interest of the crypto community. Milei is known for his strong opposition to central bank control over economies. Prior to the interview’s broadcast, Carlson referred to Milei as “probably the next president of Argentina.”
This development could be a significant boost for Bitcoin holders, as Milei’s potential election as Argentina’s president may bring another leader supportive of digital assets, following the footsteps of Nayib Bukele, the President of El Salvador, who made history by adopting Bitcoin as legal tender.
Bitcoin as Legal Tender in Argentina?
In response to Carlson’s statement, a Bitcoin supporter suggested that he should inquire whether Milei would consider making Bitcoin legal tender in Argentina.
The exact date and time of the interview broadcast have yet to be disclosed. It is anticipated that the interview will be aired on social media platforms such as Twitter or X, similar to the Carlson-Donald Trump interview broadcast.
