Why am I writing this post? Because Peru's pro-China Pedro Castillo won the election. Another country fell to leftism. Xi Jinping is laughing.
This happens. In 1990, as South Americans overthrew their dictatorships, a right-wing wave came. Left-wing waves came again in 2000, but just liberalism, like Clinton or Obama, not dictatorships. In 2010, right-wing waves came. By the beginning of the 2020s, China was desperate to become solid in Latin America. Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela fell to left-wingers trying to stop and even ban U.S. from coming into Latin America, as China extends its influence. Unfortunately, Brazil, Chile, and Colombia are next in line, as their right-wing presidents are losing to left-wing radicals threatening to recognize Maduro and bring Jinping into their economies.
