"Congratulations to President [Bolsonaro] who just made a great inauguration speech", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Former congressman Bolsonaro, whose views were once considered to be at the fringe of mainstream politics, has promised to end policies that protect criminals. "Today, criminals are freer to go about armed than good people who respect the law", said Ze Ivan, a businessman from Brazil's northern state of Para who had turned out to see his new president.

In his inauguration speech before Brazil's Congress, Bolsonaro called for "a true national pact between society and the executive, legislative and judicial powers" to restore the lackluster economy - "without ideological bias".

Leftist Presidents Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Miguel Díaz-Canel of Cuba, deemed dictators by Bolsonaro, were uninvited by Bolsonaro's team after the foreign ministry sent them invitations.

On Sunday, the Prime Minister of Iraq, Adil Abdul-Mahdi, told reporters that a security delegation had met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, and hinted at a bigger Iraqi role in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) in Syria as the USA plans to withdraw from the country.

Mr Bolsonaro and his wife, Michelle, stood up in an open-top Rolls-Royce and waved to thousands of onlookers.

The pair were surrounded by dozens of guards on horseback and plain-clothes bodyguards who ran alongside them.

His middle name is Messias, or Messiah in English, and many supporters believe he was chosen by God to lead Brazil, an assertion bolstered after he survived a stabbing during a campaign rally in September.
