Former US President Donald Trump on Thursday gave his “fullest support” to the re-election campaign of Brazilian leader Jair Bolsonaro, whom he called a “great man”.
“Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, the ‘Trump of the Tropics’ as he is nicknamed, has done a great job for the wonderful people of Brazil,” praised Donald Trump on his network, Truth Social.
The far-right Brazilian leader is a great admirer of Donald Trump, known like him for his inopportune use of social networks, his provocative style and numerous slippages.
“He’s a great guy who has my fullest support,” assured the Republican billionaire.
The October 2 presidential election is the most polarized in Brazil’s recent history. Polls show Jair Bolsonaro losing to former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
