Like Trump, Brazil’s Bolsonaro threatens ‘lying media’

Presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro grimaces right after being stabbed in the stomach during a campaign rally in Juiz de Fora Brazil Thursday Sept. 6 2018

Far-right Brazilian lawmaker Jair Bolsonaro, the so-called Trump of the Tropics, was elected president of the world's fourth-largest democracy on Sunday.

Bolsonaro, with a proudly authoritarian approach that attracted Brazilian voters tired of crime and corruption, will have to find a way to fit into the groupings of developing countries.

Several young people even came in their school uniforms and warned that the elected president "is very bad for the country because of the history and the dictatorship" that the country has already experienced.

President-elect Jair Bolsonaro made a decision to create a turbocharged Ministry of Economy. They say it's because they're more afraid of his opposition.

Bolsonaro, who has expressed admiration for dictators including Chile's Augusto Pinochet, claimed many Brazilians now believed Brazil's military regime "wasn't a dictatorship as the left has always preached".

"They follow the wave that looks like salvation, but really it's the brink of collapse", she said, claiming Bolsonaro's plans will likely worsen crime, violence and inequality. A belief that the media, congress and judiciary system will keep him in place was a sentiment that was also echoed and carried by voters who may not personally like him but prefer him to Fernando Haddad, the Workers' Party candidate.

Bolsonaro supporters carried out physical attacks and organized campaigns of online harassment in the run-up to Sunday's vote, targeting journalists in particular, according to a tally kept by Abraji, an investigative journalism group. New rules will boost investment in infrastructure, he told reporters. Globo said on Tuesday that federal government advertising represented less than 4 percent of the revenue for its flagship channel, TV Globo, without providing more detailed figures.

"The exact details of how his administration plans to achieve (its) objectives are limited", wrote Fitch analysts led by Shelly Shetty.

The goal is to reduce by half some 29 ministries by combining others, such as Agriculture and Environment, said Deputy Onyx Lorenzoni, who may become Bolsonaro's next chief of staff.

Yet the University of Chicago-trained economist, who is getting his first taste of public service, met with skepticism from more seasoned politicians. "We are going to save Brazilian industry", Guedes said.

Paulo Guedes, whom Bolsonaro selected as a "super minister" with a portfolio combining the current ministries of finance, planning and development, has urged Congress to pass an initial version of pension reform before the January 1 inauguration.

"(Bolsonaro) is a soldier", Mariscal said. He said the Temer government may approve the deal before leaving.
