Argentina's president apologizes for saying "Brazilians came from the jungle, but we Argentines came from the ships"

He made the comments to impress Spain's prime minister, and later said they came from a song he liked:

“The Mexicans came from the Indians, the Brazilians came from the jungle, but we Argentines came from the ships. And they were ships that came from Europe,” Fern├índez said, referring to the many European migrants who arrived in the country. He later apologized for the comments and said his country’s diversity was something to be proud of.
