Fernández picks fight with Trump in IADB election
In diplomatic affairs, unwritten rules aren’t really rules at all. Traditions are respected until they are not respected anymore.
Such is the case of the IABD, the Inter-American Development Bank. Since 1959, its presidency has been held by Latin Americans. But for the election of new authorities, scheduled for the weekend after September 11, Donald Trump decided to back Cuban American Mauricio Claver-Carone as his presidential candidate.
