Brasilia: Jair Bolsonaro's campaign to keep people working and the economy going has hit two new hurdles.

Twitter on Sunday, Brasilia time, blocked two posts from the Brazilian President for violating its COVID-19 rules.

The rules require people to remove tweets that include, among others: "denial of global or local health authority recommendations to decrease someone’s likelihood of exposure to [the disease] with the intent to influence people into acting against recommended guidance, such as: 'social distancing is not effective'..."; as well as "description of treatments or protective measures which are not immediately harmful but are known to be ineffective."

Bolsonaro's tweets followed his visit to a street market just outside the national capital on Sunday to push his case for keeping Latin America's largest economy ticking instead of locking down activities to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

1. Today he pointed at the correspondents nearby, and yelled:

"These journalists say I'm wrong - but look at them!"

"What the fuck are they doing there! Why aren't they at home!"

An Evangelist fanatic, a woman in her 60s, then held her hand over his head and offered him a blessing.

They don't call him the Tropical Trump for nothin'.
