Then, addressing Chancellor Ernesto Araújo during an event at the Planalto Palace, he said: “We have just seen a great candidate for head of state saying that if I do not put out the fire in the Amazon he will raise trade barriers against Brazil . How are we going to deal with all this? ”
Bolsonaro then repeated a phrase already used for him in the past to say that diplomacy is not enough to defend the country’s sovereignty over the Amazon: “It is not enough for diplomacy alone. After you run out of saliva, you have to have gunpowder. to use gunpowder, you have to know you have it. ”
The president also affirmed that “nobody has what we have”, in reference to the natural resources of the Amazon, which he has repeatedly said is the target of international greed.
“We have to strengthen ourselves. And how can we strengthen ourselves? Liberating the economy, free market. Giving freedom to those who want to work, not pissing off those who want to produce,” he said.
Bolsonaro has yet to greet Biden for the victory, which is contested by President Donald Trump, an ally of the Brazilian.
Defeated, Trump points to “fraud” in elections in states where he lost the vote, but without presenting evidence or any evidence to support his claims. In the Brazilian government, the stance is not to recognize Biden’s victory and to act as if the electoral situation in the USA was undefined.
Following Trump’s example and five days before the municipal elections in Brazil, Bolsonaro again said, also without evidence, that Brazil’s electoral system is susceptible to fraud: “We don’t have a solid voting system in Brazil, susceptible to fraud. And everything can change in the future, with fraud. I understand that I was only elected because I had a lot of votes ”.
