Trump is a global phenomenon.
Corrupt left-wing politicians have destroyed Brazil’s economy and made Brazilian cities unsafe. In 2017 alone, Brazil recorded close to 60,000 homicides. As a result, conservative politician Jair Bolsonaro is riding a wave of popularity similar to what the United States experienced with President Trump. Bolsonaro has been called “Brazil’s Trump” due to his nationalistic policies and his tough stance on crime. The slanderers in the media have naturally referred to him as a “far-right” politician. Like President Trump, the media (both inside and outside Brazil) despise Bolsonaro. Fortunately, the media and cultural elites do not decide who wins elections. It is the voters who decide who wins elections.
The Guardian. October 28, 2018:
Jair Bolsonaro, a 63-year-old former paratrooper who built his campaign around pledges to crush corruption, crime and a supposed communist threat, secured 55.5% of the votes after more than 94% were counted and was therefore elected Brazil’s next president, electoral authorities said on Sunday.
Bolsonaro’s leftist rival, Fernando Haddad, secured 44.5% of votes.
In a video broadcast from his home in Rio de Janeiro, Bolsonaro thanked God, and vowed to stamp out corruption in the country.
“We cannot continue flirting with communism … We are going to change the destiny of Brazil,’ he said.
News of those results sent Bolsonaro devotees outside his beachfront home in western Rio de Janeiro into ecstasy.
“This is phenomenal. It’s a unique feeling,” said Rafael Gomes, a 34-year-old salesman who was among the crowds. “I can see a better future for my son, better health, education and security, something we haven’t had for years.”
Hordes of jubilant Bolsonaro supporters flocked onto Avenida Paulista, one of São Paulo’s most important boulevards, where they sang Brazil’s national anthem and set off fireworks.
Many fans wore the green and yellow colours of Brazil’s national flag which has become the trademark of Bolsonaro’s push for power.
“I feel so happy. Brazil is waking up. We are coming out of a trance,” said Jordan Requena, a 20-year-old student who was among the crowds.
Pietro Sambugaro, a 28-year-old Bolsonaro activist, broke down into tears as he described his joy. “I feel so proud to have been part of this change. He is our hope!”
