U.S.'s Bolton says will meet Brazil's Bolsonaro in Rio

NOVEMBER 21, 2018 / 1:27 PM / UPDATED 14 HOURS AGO

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton on Wednesday said he would meet with Brazil’s far-right President-elect Jair Bolsonaro this month in Rio de Janeiro.

“Look forward to seeing Brazil’s next President @JairBolsonaro in Rio on November 29th. We share many bilateral interests and will work closely on expanding freedom and prosperity throughout the Western Hemisphere,” Bolton wrote on Twitter.

. . .

Bolsonaro’s election cheered investors, but alarmed critics around the globe given his defense of Brazil’s 1964-1985 military dictatorship, vows to sweep away leftist political opponents, and a track record of denigrating comments about gay people, women and minorities.
