Trump says he's for Brazil's OECD membership bid

United States President Donald Trump said in a tweet that he is in favor of Brazil starting the application process for membership in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Trump wrote: "The joint statement released with President Bolsonaro in March makes absolutely clear that I support Brazil beginning the process for full OECD membership. The United States stands by that statement and stands by @jairbolsonaro. This article is FAKE NEWS!"

In his tweet, the US president linked an article by Bloomberg which has since been amended to say that Trump backs Brazil's bid "despite a State Department letter in August that showed the US withholding support" for Brazil's application.
