BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday said he had begun the process of reaching out formally to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, making the far-right South American leader one of the last world leaders to do so.
In an interview with Brazil’s TV Band, Bolsonaro said that with the vote now confirmed by the U.S. Electoral College, he would no longer discuss the election. A fervent ideological ally of U.S. President Donald Trump, the Brazilian leader had voiced concerns about widespread fraud in the November vote.
