Bolsonaro Is Latest Authoritarian To Endorse Trump

NBC News reports:

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro endorsed President Trump for a second term on Tuesday, becoming the latest international leader to lend their support for the president.

“God willing I will be able to attend” Trump’s second inauguration, Bolsonaro said. He added that he won’t “interfere” in the election but “it is from the heart.” First elected in 2018, Bolsonaro has often been referred to as Brazil’s version of Trump.
