Ep. 132 - President Jair BolsonaroThe Sunday Special•Oct 22, 2022
Our guest, Jair Bolsonaro, is the current president of Brazil and is up for reelection at the end of October. President Bolsonaro has taken militantly conservative positions and targeted the country's corruption in allegedly controversial ways: killing government programs, opening up gun availability for law-abiding citizens, harsher treatment of criminals, and opening up more economic development in areas prized by environmentalists. He has been slandered as a facist, a dictator, and an authoritarian; but, his agenda of more assertive force to cut crime and promote traditional family values has made him hugely popular with Brazilians.
In today's episode, we discuss if Brazil’s momentum away from big government could lead a way forward for other countries of South America. Plus, we discuss Bolsonaro’s experience dealing with the Trump administration compared with the Biden administration, his Covid policies, his political opponent – Lula Da Silva, and the significance of the upcoming Brazilian election.
