Donald Trump Makes Huge Endorsement In Brazilian Election

( Brazil is now in the midst of its general election season. The current president of the country, the conservative Jair Bolsonaro, has a slight lead in the polls over his opponent, the former socialist President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Voting will take place today in Brazil for the positions of president, state and federal representatives, senator, and governor of the state.

According to a poll conducted by the Veritá Institute, which was the organization that came the closest to correctly predicting the outcome of the elections in 2018, President Jair Bolsonaro is currently ahead of Lula by a small percentage.

Bolsonaro is a conservative who opposes globalism, battles against abortion and gender ideology, and supports market economics and civilian armament. He is also against civilian armament. Recent months have been notable for his administration’s accomplishment in bringing inflation and fuel costs down to more manageable levels.

President Donald Trump sent a video to Bolsonaro yesterday. The 45th president thanked the people of Brazil and appealed for their votes for the next president of Brazil. He also conveyed his admiration for Brazilians.

Between 2003 and 2010, Lula da Silva served as President of Brazil. Charges of widespread corruption characterized his administration, plans to launder money, and an economic catastrophe, all of which were left behind by his successor, Dilma Rousseff, who belonged to the same party as Lula but was removed from office in 2016.

In 2018, the socialist was taken into custody for bribery, money laundering, and failing to disclose assets. In November 2019, judges on the Supreme Court issued an order that called for Lula’s release and the restoration of his political rights, making it possible for him to participate again in elections.

In previous elections, Geraldo Alckmin posed as Lula da Silva’s rival and ran against the leftist for president in 2006, and he is running as Lula’s vice-presidential candidate. In these previous elections, Alckmin posed as da Silva’s opponent.

If re-elected, Bolsonaro has pledged to further his administration’s economic reforms and broaden people’s access to firearms if he wins the election. Every legislation restricting gun access is a step closer to establishing a dictatorship. When defending the right of the populace to possess firearms, the president stated, “I’m not a tyrant, and I’m not frightened of the people.”
