Sebastián Piñera (born December 1, 1949) is a Chilean politician and businessman who currently serving as President. He previously served from March 11, 2010,[1] to March 11, 2014, and then again starting on March 11, 2018.

Some observers have compared Piñera to U.S. President Donald Trump.[2] On the other hand, Piñera has sided with the Left on certain issues, such as discussing with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about "gender" policies and how to advance the homosexual agenda.[3] Pinera supports Chile's abortion laws, which outlaw the practice in all circumstances. In 2013,he praised as "brave and mature" a pregnant 11-year-old rape victim who said she was happy to have the child.[1] In 2018, Piñera promised to oppose efforts to expand abortion in the country, saying he will do “everything that is necessary to defend life.”.[2]

He studied economy in the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and in Harvard.

Second Government

Piñera leads the center-right coalition called Chile Vamos. He advocated the homosexual agenda by supporting Gender Identity laws,[4][5][3] a "deep cultural change",[6] increase the number of ministries,[7] a "gender equality" agenda,[8][9] the legalization of 300.000 illegal immigrants,[10] the increase of digital taxes,[11] and maintain the 27% of corporate taxes.[12]

He also promoted the "Safe Classroom" law which regulates the expulsion of violent students from public schools,[13] a law which privileges the meritocracy in the admission to Chilean Schools[14] and he refused to sign the UN Global Migration Pact[15] however he signed the UN Refugee Pact.[16]

In his first year of government, around 200,000 immigrants entered Chile, with a total of 1,251,225 new immigrants since 2014.[17] Piñera continued an open border policy similar to what his predecessor did, but under Piñera, it was a bit more regulated and the main new immigrants were Venezuelans instead of Haitians.

The 2019 Chilean State of Emergency occurred during Piñera's presidency.
