Reply to Mauricio Macri
Gollan dedicated a few words to Mauricio Macri, who two days earlier, in Mendoza, referred to the coronavirus like a “slightly more serious flu.”
Then, the former president asked “sorry for the mistake” on his Twitter account and sent them his “sorry to the people who were affected by this virus and to their families. ”
However, for Gollan, Macri’s mea culpa was just for “marketing”.
“I find it difficult to express my opinion when that person speaks. His role has been very sad. They minimized the situation. He had to go out and retract because they will have told him that from marketing what he said was not right, “he shot.
And he concluded: “But is what you think, because it is what he has always said, what he always thinks “.
