June 8, 2020

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has described the protests against him that took place in twelve cities on Sunday as “the big problem of this moment”, although the country is the second largest in the world with the most infections and has already confirmed 37,312 died.

“They are starting to take off their masks,” said Bolsonaro on Monday during an act with followers in the Alborada Palace. “I want to fix things slowly (…). How did I heal the country? There are voices that are correct in what they denounce and not in what they say. I have cured cancer as much as possible A doctor cannot completely solve this problem in an hour, “he argued. In particular, he pointed out that there were “many interests” and “indoctrinations” among the participants in the demonstrations.

“Nothing hidden, supported by the media, whips the President of the Republic in various ways to delegitimize him or hinder his government,” Bolsonaro himself later reported on Twitter.

At his meeting with supporters, Bolsonaro also pointed out the corona virus, but once again clarified the responsibility of the governors and prefects. “The Supreme Court has transferred all power (to the governors). I only injected billions into their hands. And some continue to distract. Some,” he said.
