Bolsonaro did not manifest himself on social networks, different from several leaders such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
While several leaders congratulated Democrat Joe Biden on projections of victory in the United States elections, announced in much of the American press on Saturday, 7 others preferred silence. After television stations such as CNN, NBC and CBS announced projections with a Biden triumph in Pennsylvania, which secured 20 more delegates at the Electoral College, which led to a total of 273 – 270 are needed to be declared the winner.
However, the candidate for reelection, Donald Trump, did not recognize the defeat and promised to go to court. Without showing any evidence, the Republicans claimed that there was fraud in the vote count in several American states.
Quite active on social networks, the President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, who sees Trump as a great ally, spoke for the last time about the American elections last Tuesday, the 3rd day of the closing of votes. At the time, he merely reiterated his support for the current American head of government.
There was also no demonstration on Biden’s projections of victory by China, which went on to wage a trade war with the United States during Trump’s term, nor by Russia, accused of interfering with the previous American presidential candidates in 2016.
On the other hand, some Republican allies have already spoken in public about the Democratic candidate’s victory. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who on Twitter uses a photo with Trump as the cover image, said he was looking forward to working with Biden and vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris. Hungary’s prime minister, ultranationalist Viktor Orban, wished Biden “health and success”.
The Hungarian leader has had good contacts with Trump over the past four years and in 2016 was the only national leader to openly support the Republican election campaign. For his part, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that a victory for the candidate for re-election would have been better for the eastern European country, especially about the conflict with the former province of Kosovo, but guaranteed that he would congratulate Biden.
