Bolsonaro is a problem for Biden in Latin America, says analyst

Published

São Paulo – With the beginning of Joe Biden’s government in the United States, the isolation of President Jair Bolsonaro in the international scenario should increase even more. This week, the American president received a document recommending the suspension of political agreements, negotiations and alliances with Brazil, while Bolsonaro is in power.

The report produced by the Network in the United States for Democracy in Brazil points out serious damage done by the Bolsonaro government on issues such as human rights and the environment. In addition, the Brazilian government is also considered the worst in the world in combating the pandemic.

According to the website’s editorial director Opera Mundi, Breno Altman, Biden seeks to expand US relations with neoliberals and center-right forces in Latin America. Unlike his predecessor, Donald Trump, who favored contacts with far-right groups. “Biden knows that Bolsonaro is a problem in Latin America,” said Altman, in an interview with Current Brazil Newspaper, this Friday (4).

For Americans, Bolsonaro is seen as someone who can promote situations that get out of control, which would facilitate an eventual return of leftist forces to the government. Last week, asked when he would be in touch with the president of Brazil, Biden just smiled, avoiding replying. “He shows no signs of maintaining a privileged alliance with Bolsonaro. Instead. It will try to pressure you, in order to moderate your political-ideological interventions and, mainly, with regard to the environmental issue ”.

Barbarian Chancellor

For the journalist, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ernesto Araújo, makes up the “pathological” area of ​​the Bolsonaro government. “From a scientific-philosophical point of view, he is a terraplanist. From an ideological point of view, he is a citizen whose ideas are planted in the Middle Ages. A mad anti-communist. It is the expression of these most barbaric aspects of the government. ”

However, in addition to these folkloric aspects, the minister’s performance is damaging to Brazil’s relations with important allies, such as China. Ernesto has already called the new coronavirus a “Chinese virus”. More recently, during the World Economic Forum in Davos, he highlighted the importance of the supposed alliance between Brazil and the United States as a way to stop the advance of “technototalitarian” regimes, in reference to the Asian giant. This type of declaration has been causing discomfort, even among sectors of Brazilian agribusiness, since the Chinese are Brazil’s main trading partners.
