In recent days, the chief executive’s re-election has been endorsed by José Antonio Cast, who ran in Chile’s runoff last year, and Colombian senator Maria Fernanda Cabal, representatives of the world’s far right.
“My Brazilian friends, you are preparing for an important election. I have served my country in Europe for more than thirty years and I have met many leaders, but I have seen few leaders as exceptional as your president, President Bolsonaro. The opportunity to work with him, how he lowered taxes, stabilized the economy , it was a great honor to see and learn that he reduced crime rates,” Orban said in a video posted today on Bolsonaro’s social media. “I hope he can continue his work,” the Hungarian prime minister amended.

In July, the chief executive received Hungary’s president Katalin Nowak at Plano Bolsonaro’s palace.
In another video shared yesterday on Bolsonaro’s social networks, Chile’s current president Gabriel Boric, in the second round of the 2021 election, is receiving support from the Chilean caste, who have clashed with the left. “This Sunday, Brazil plays. For freedom, these have been years of great progress and security. From Chile, we wish President Jair Bolsonaro every success in defeating the extreme left again,” said the Chilean far-right leader.
“This Sunday, October 2, Brazilians decide whether they want to be free or slaves, if they want to continue to enjoy prosperity, to be the only country in the world without inflation, the only country without a trade balance. A deficit with China, because they import more than they import from China. Exporting. Well, let’s follow Jair Bolsonaro with effort, with heart, with determination,” said Colombian Senator Maria Fernanda Cabal.
Bolsonaro already had the support of former US President Donald Trump, who lost the election to Joe Biden in 2020 and contested the results, which culminated in the January 2021 invasion of the US Congress by Trump militants. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, affectionately known as ‘Tropical Trump,’ has done a great job for the wonderful people of Brazil,” Trump wrote on social media on September 8.
