Through social networks, citizens called to protest against the situation of people confined in containment centers, the arrests of those who do not respect quarantine, the management of the economy during the crisis, and the abandonment of Salvadoreans stranded abroad.
In one of his first reactions to these complaints, the Salvadoran president commented negatively on a video of an upper-class protest in Santa Tecla city.
"When I saw this video, I was outraged. Then I remembered that many parents of those who are whistling killed priests, raped nuns, financed death squads, and plundered our country. Compared to that, what their children are doing means nothing," Bukele tweeted.
Previously, he announced the extension of the emergency state and absolute quarantine, which are policies that the Salvadoran Congress must discuss in the coming days.
