Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has denounced alleged persecution against him this Thursday, calling on the media to spread the hate messages that ensure that he and his advisors start social media a day later. Facebook has removed some of these accounts and profiles for counterfeiting .
“The fashion is now to be said that the pages of Bolsonaro’s family and consultants who deserve public money promote hatred. I ask the press to show a text of my hatred or those who work with me.” the Brazilian President launched during his daily speech on social networks.
On this occasion, Bolsonaro was alone and on other occasions used to being surrounded by one of his advisors or government officials, but always with an interpreter who, this time, was not quarantined this week. Test positive for COVID-19. What accompanied him on this occasion was a box of chloroquine, the controversial antimalarial drug that the Brazilian president has always defended against COVID-19 despite the lack of a solid scientific foundation for its benefits.
The far-right leader has denounced that the opposition and the media are constantly trying to “shoot down” the duo that is forming with his deputy minister, General Hamilton Mourão, or “disqualify and waste his government,” without any evidence to submit them.
