Biden condemns "the unacceptable assault on democracy in Brazil"

Two days after the second anniversary of the assault on the Capitol carried out by thousands of followers of Donald Trump, President Joe Biden condemned this Sunday "the unacceptable assault on democracy" in Brazil.

The US leader, visiting the El Paso border and then slipping into Mexico City, said he hoped to continue working with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who, like him to Trump two months before the insurrection on Capitol Hill, defeated Bolsonaro in the elections last October.

“I condemn the assault on democracy and the peaceful transfer of power in Brazil. The democratic institutions of that country have our full support. The will of the Brazilian people must not be undermined,” Biden said on Twitter. Shortly before, he had described the insurrection in Brasilia as "unacceptable."

According to the US press, the far-right ex-Brazilian president would be in Florida for a few days. "Given the various investigations that he is facing for actions while in office, Bolsonaro flew to Florida at the end of December with plans to stay for at least a month," published The New York Times.

The former leader would have been specifically in Orlando, "living in a rented house owned by a professional mixed martial arts fighter a few miles from Disney World."
