In remarks that perfectly encapsulates America’s slide into Banana Republic, the President of El Salvador noted that unlike in the US, the government in his country doesn’t try to jail the political opposition.

President Nayib Bukele made the comment during an exchange with Donald Trump Jr. who was congratulating Bukele on his “amazing accomplishment” of being reelected in a landslide victory earlier this year, receiving 85 percent of the vote.

After Bukele was inaugurated for a second term Saturday, Trump Jr. told him “And you do it all without having to jail your political opponents. Which, I liked in the speech.”

Trump Jr. also noted that people in El Salvador were “able to video because there’s no more crime” and no one is being thrown “in jail” for doing so.

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


Following the Manhattan jury’s verdict on Friday, Joe Biden was asked to comment on Trump’s remarks that he is now a “political prisoner.” Biden responded with a smirk after earlier declaring that it is “dangerous” to suggest the trial was ‘rigged’ against Trump.
