The far-right Jair Bolsonaro, who today took office as the new president of Brazil, told social networks to the US president, Donald Trump, that "together" and under the protection of God, "will bring" prosperity "and" progress "to the peoples of both countries.
"Dear, Mr. President @ RealDonalTrump, I really appreciate your words of encouragement, together, under the protection of God, we will bring prosperity and progress to our peoples!" Bolsonaro said in his first tweet after being invested as Brazilian head of state before The congress.
Bolsonaro, a captain of the Army reserve who won the elections last October with 55% of the votes, bets on "direct communication" through social networks, the main means he has used both during the campaign, and during the transition process.
Bolsonaro responded to another Trump tweet, admired by the new Brazilian ruler, in which he congratulated him for the "inaugural address" he offered in Congress after swearing in the post.
"Congratulations to President @JairBolsonaro, who made a great inaugural speech – the US is with you!" The US president wrote.
