That is something former president trump, months after official departure the White House, has not forgotten and has shown some interest in return the favor.

This summer, according to two people with knowledge of Trump told his confidants he is open to publicly approving Bolsonaro’s re-election, possibly during a mega rally in Brazil where he and Bolsonaro could appear together side-by means of-side, to the track against what they each regard as undesirable election results. bolsonaro, who it is generally expected that the decisive fail in his reelection bid next year, has spread preventively unfounded claims of election fraud, a strategy shockingly reminiscent of of from Trump failed coup d’état in the United States.

Or Trump ends up visiting his Brazilian colleague soon of not (the US government issued a “level four” advisory for the ones die be interested in a visit to Brazil), the links between Bolsonaro-world and Trumpland remain firmly intact.

President Bolsonaro’s son Edward, who serves as a member of the brazilian parliament and is described in the American press as the Donald Trump Jr. of Brazil recently met with Trump, according to a post on the Brazilian legislator Instagram account. Last month, the younger Bolsonaro posted Pictures of standing at Trump Tower next to the former president. Bolsonaro, whose baby daughter posed next to the ex-president in a signed MAGA ball hat, he said”took the possibility to invite [Trump] to come to our country when he sees fit, maybe in An CPAC-Brazil.”

Trump has die from Brazil apparently not made version of the annual US conservative top, although Donald Trump Jr. addressed the conference via video. CPAC Brazil 2021, that was hosted in capital of Brazil city of Brazil begin this month, is one of several foreign spin-offs of the stateside conference, die is being held on by the American Conservative Union. The ACU is led by: Trump-bound lobbyist Matt Schlapp, who is also An friend of the Bolsonaro political dynasty.

The incident came on Brazil’s Independence Day, as Bolsonaro urged his supporters to defend his government by taking to the streets of Brasília, as well as other major cities

A day before he was detained, Miller appeared on former top Trump helps Steve Bannon’s podcast to praise Bolsonaro, die he described it as a “very impressive man”.

“In many of In many ways, President Bolsonaro has the same superpowers as President Trump,” Miller said.

gettrMiller’s Attempt at a Pro-Trump social media platform, has proved particularly popular with conservative Brazilian supporters of According to President Bolsonaro a recent report from Stanford University’s Internet Observatory. As part of in die study, researchers looked at the frequency of highlight emojis in Gettr user profiles: Brazilian flags, affixed to 11,350 profiles, were second only for American flags, found on 20,650 accounts. The flag stat is an inaccurate measurement of the national demographics of Gettr is about 1.5 million followers but nevertheless points to a strikingly large and vocal community of pro-Bolsonaro users on the social media app. their presence in such numbers, Stanford researchers wrote, are likely at least due in participate in the support of Bolsonaros son flavio, who announced he was joining the platform back in July.

The pugnacious Brazilian president has returned the favor and courted Miller with a high-level meeting during the trip to Brazil. Miller met with a barefoot Bolsonaro and his son Eduardo, according to photos posted on Twitter by fellow contestant Matthew Tyrmand, a board member of pro-Trump conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas group. During the meeting, Bolsonaro and his son held up a Project Veritas shirt.

“He wants to be nice” of the South American branch of Trumpism, if you will,” said Gustavo Ribeiro, the founder of Brazilian news website The Brazilian report.

Bolsonaros critics had accused him of using the protests to commit a coup of die Of his own version of a Jan 6 style attack on government institutions. As protesters broke through some police barricades the night before, the pro-Bolsonaro demonstrations were thwarted by low turnout and increased law enforcement presence.

Eduardo Bolsonaro has become an emissary among his father and the American far right. In 2019, the younger Bolsonaro joined a species of international populist movement founded by Bannon, as a representative for South America.

Andre Pagliarini, a collaborator professor at Hampden-Sydney College who studies modern Brazilian politics history, said the Bolsonaros branch itself with Trump employees like bannon in an attempt to get closer to Trump.

“It’s that lingering Trump dust that still is” on bannon die appeals to them,” said Pagliarini.

Eduardo Bolsonaro has courted even less internationally known Trump allies in the United States like CEO of MyPillow and loyal ally of Trump Mike Lindell. In August, Bolsonaro spoke on Lindell’s ill-fated “cyber symposium” event, a clumsy attempt to prove the false conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.

Before his speech, Bolsonaro handed Lindell a red “MAGA” hat that he claimed came from the twice-dropped off former American president.

“Bolsonaro will” win unless it is stolen by – guess what? – the machines’ Bannon said as the younger Bolsonaro was… on-phase.

The machines!” Lindell agreed.

For his part, the Trumpist pillow tycoon isn’t quite gone in on Bolsonaro just yet. Lindell told The Daily Beast on Thursday night he is currently not planning to on sink money of resources in anything met Brazil is dealing – because he is busy met the launch new fronts in his audit crusade in “Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Alabama, Colorado.”

Bolsonaro is expected to be reelected in 2022 losses campaign until left-wing former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. forward of die expected defeat die Bolsonaro brings Trump and the GOP is unfounded accusations of massive voter fraud to Brazil, part of an attempt to claim victory even if he loses.

“Here’s a network of denial in the United States die were founded after Trump loses that they can be nice of plug itself in’ said Pagliarini.

Bolsonaro has already custom american culture war battles for Brazil, according to Ribeiro, embraces fighting over gun control and presumed COVID-19 cure hydroxychloroquine.

Bolsonaro was also An early promoter of ivermectin, the anti-parasitic drug that has been embraced by anti-vaccination groups as an unproven COVID-19 treatment in the United States.

“We don’t have a second amendment here, but still use arguments die very similar to what the Republicans would do? use in the United States over the freedom to bear arms,” Ribeiro said.

Some pro-Trump media outlets have embraced Bolsonaro as a figure die Bannon has called the ‘Trump’ of the tropics.” QAnon social media channels eagerly followed the Brazilian protests and dismissed them as ordinary Brazilians die reclaim their freedom from the liberal elites. Right-wing blog The Gateway Pundit argued that pro-Bolsonaro protesters and Trump supporters were all part of An global battle against so-called ‘corruption’.

This is not the first time to have meetings between Bolsonaro and Trumpworld made headlines. March 2020 meeting between Trump and Bolsonaro in Mar-a-Lago became a prominent coronavirus hotspot in the United States after several Bolsonaro assistants tested positive for the virus.
