The interim president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, thanked on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 to her American counterpart, Donald Trump, for the support she expressed towards the Bolivian transitional government.
"We appreciate the support of the President of the United States, @realDonaldTrump. Our job is to pacify our homeland and call elections, as citizenship has expressed," Áñez wrote on Twitter, in response to a message that Trump previously published in The same social network.
Trump, in a short text, expressed his support for Áñez in the process of developing a "peaceful democratic transition through free elections."
In a second part, Trump denounced what he considered "an ongoing violence" that is encouraged "both in Bolivia and from afar", although without specifying who these actors would be.
We support @JeanineAnez in Bolivia as she works to ensure a peaceful democratic transition through free elections. We denounce the ongoing violence and those that provoke it both in Bolivia and from afar. The U.S. stands with the people of the region for peace and democracy!

Áñez's thanks were added by the former Bolivian president and current delegate of the interim government to the international community, Jorge Tuto Quiroga.
"In #Bolivia we stopped a slow-motion coup with a grotesquely fraudulent end. Evo (Morales) violated the constitution and the 21F referendum for a third and then fourth term; in October he tried blatantly to steal the elections. Bolivia will not be a new Cuba "Quiroga wrote in a message in English.
Thank you President @realDonaldTrump. In #Bolivia we stopped a slow motion coup with a grotesquely fraudulent finale. Evo violated the constitution and 21F referendum for a 3rd and then 4th term; in October he blatantly tried to steal the election. Bolivia will not be a new Cuba pic.twitter.com/Rs44r8crXv
