Trump endorses Bolsonaro as Brazil's Senate calls for charges

Former United States President Donald Trump issued a statement in support of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's reelection after actions were taken against Bolonsaro over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"President Jair Bolsonaro and I have become great friends over the past few years. He fights hard for, and loves, the people of Brazil — Just like I do for the people of the United States," Trump said. "Brazil is lucky to have a man such as Jair Bolsonaro working for them. He is a great President and will never let the people of his great country down!"

The statement came soon after the Brazilian Senate committee voted to recommend for the head of state to face a series of criminal indictments for his actions amid the pandemic.
