Bolsonaro Will Have Dinner With Conservative Luminaries During US Visit

When president Bolsonaro arrives in Washington DC on March 17th, he will be received at a sort of conservative "Last Supper" arranged by the Brazilian ambassador Sérgio Amaral. Philosophers, journalists and investors, all aligned with conservatism, were invited for the welcome dinner and are expected to influence Bolsonaro's decisions during his visit to US president Donald Trump.

The VIP guest list proposed by Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo and diplomat Nestor Forsters includes Gerald Brant, one of Bolsonaro's first supporters among American investors and entrepreneurs and Mary Anastasia O'Grady, member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board. Writer Olavo de Carvalho and former Trump strategist Steve Bannon, both longtime Bolsonaro supporters, are also confirmed.

The guests share Bolsonaro's worldview and ideology, which is something the president and his aides have been looking for since the beginning of his term. The president doesn't appreciate opposing points of view, and his team tends to dismiss anyone who doesn't agree with him.

President Bolsonaro will also sit down for an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network and meet investors and businesspeople. He is scheduled to visit the White House on the 19th, where he will have a working meeting and lunch with Donald Trump.


(I can't imagine anyone would expect to have a "working meeting" with Trump. That probably means more Big Macs and Filets of Fish while watching Fox News.)

1. Fascists of the world unite

I suspect they would have invited Macri as well; but what with the economy imploding under his debt bubble, and his 27% approval, he's now damaged goods.

Plus Bolsonazi doesn't like him very much (probably heard the way Macri refers to Brazilians in private).

Thanks for porting this, Judi. U.S. voters need to know who their congresscritters cavort with.

2. Simply remarkable...

How much clearer could this possibly get?

That there are individuals who believe that this is how it’s done; is astounding.
