In Brazil's hard-right leader, Trump finds kindred spirit

  • US President Donald Trump speaks from the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington DC

Brazil is already the deadliest country in the world in which to defend your land, with at least 57 people murdered previous year, 25 of them in three massacres. He stunned many observers in August by pledging to follow U.S. President Donald Trump's lead and pull Brazil out of the 2015 Paris treaty on climate change.

In the run-up to the election, Bolsonaro, whose first foreign visits would be to Chile, Israel and the USA - that according to him "share our worldview" - has said: "The future ministry will come from the productive sector".

The Brazilian judge at the center of a sprawling investigation into kickbacks to politicians is considering joining the government of President-elect Jair Bolsonaro. Dubbed "the Trump of the Tropics", Bolsonaro is a hard-line politician who campaigned against crime and corruption.

Bolsonaro, who will be sworn in on January 1, defeated former Sao Paulo Mayor Fernando Haddad in a runoff election held Sunday.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams. She praised Abrams as a leader who "will serve the underserved of the state of Georgia".

The Bovespa index welcomed the election of a market-driven president, but it remains to be seen if Bolsonaro's election will have long-term effects on Brazil's economy.

The protesters marched in the evening with a banner reading "Dictatorship, never again" - a reference to Bolsonaro's outspoken admiration for the brutal military regime that ruled Brazil from 1964 to 1985. "People want the PT out, they can´t take any more corruption", said Tatiana Cunha, a 39-year-old systems analyst in the midst of the noisy celebrations.

Will the Brazil rally last?

Investors also cheered Bolsonaro´s ascent, relieved that he could keep the PT out of power and hopeful that he would carry out fiscal reforms proposed by his orthodox economic guru.

Hundreds of regime opponents were killed or disappeared during Brazil's 21-year dictatorship while thousands more were tortured.

This, along with his disdain for the Paris climate change accord, could mark a disturbing departure from Brazil's historical sensitivity to keeping its precious environmental resources intact.

The goal is to reduce by half some 29 ministries by combining others, such as Agriculture and Environment, said Deputy Onyx Lorenzoni, who may become Bolsonaro's next chief of staff.

It said the biggest risks facing Brazil are abandoning the budget-cutting reforms launched by outgoing President Michel Temer, or a downturn in external conditions for emerging markets. We urge you to make it one that leaves Brazil - and the world - a more just, more sustainable and more equal place than you found it.

Peever and the new chief executive, Kevin Roberts, were also firm on CA's stance not to consider reducing the trio's lengthy bans. Although, it cannot be denied that the three players had made a mistake.

But Bolsonaro and Trump face fundamentally different backdrops, with the Brazilian leader elected in the wake of economic crisis.
