Trump Ally Rises to Power in Brazil

Brazil’s new president, former captain Bolsonaro, has been sworn in to the Presidency. The Daily Caller reports:

Former Brazilian Army captain Jair Bolsonaro was sworn in Tuesday as the president of Brazil and received a prompt congratulations from U.S. President Donald Trump, with whom Bolosonaro is often compared.

“I will work tirelessly so that Brazil reaches its destiny,” the new president said at his swearing-in ceremony in front of Brazil’s Congress. “My vow is to strengthen Brazil’s democracy.”

Bolsonaro, 63, is often referred to by the media as the “Trump of the Tropics,” not only for his provocative statements on issues ranging from gun laws to abortion and immigration, but also for his ability to reach a similar base of Brazilians as Trump did Americans.

“Congratulations to President [Bolsonaro] who just made a great inauguration speech,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “[…] the U.S.A. is with you!”

Bolsonaro is already working on destroying Marxism in education in Brazil, and closer ties between Brazil and the US is already in the works.
