Brazil’s Bolsonaro is being treated in the United States

Brazil’s Bolsonaro is being treated in the United States while his supporters in his own country riot.
According to media sources, Jair Bolsonaro was hospitalised to AdventHealth Celebration acute care hospital in Orlando, Florida, where he flew two days before the end of his term on December 31.
Brasilia: Brazilian far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro was hospitalised on Monday with stomach pain, according to his wife, following claims he was seeking treatment in a Florida hospital a day after his supporters stormed the presidential palace in Brasilia.
According to Brazil’s O Globo newspaper, Bolsonaro, 67, was taken to AdventHealth Celebration acute care hospital near Orlando, Florida, where he flew two days before his term expired on December 31.
Michelle Bolsonaro posted on Instagram that Bolsonaro “is under observation in the hospital, due to stomach discomfort coming from the stabbing incident he received in 2018” during his winning presidential campaign.
An AFP enquiry was not immediately returned by the Orlando hospital. In breathtaking sights reminiscent of the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol insurgency, hundreds of Bolsonaro supporters stormed the nation’s Congress, Supreme Court, and presidential office on Sunday, leaving a path of destruction.
According to a joint statement, President Biden called Brazilian President Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva on Monday and “condemned the violence and attack on democratic institutions and the peaceful transfer of power” in Brasilia. Lula also accepted an offer to visit Washington for “in-depth talks” in early February, according to the statement.
When the man who defeated him in the polls, veteran leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, took office on January 1, the former leader skipped the traditional handover of the presidential sash.
He has been residing at the Orlando house of Brazilian former MMA champion Jose Aldo, which is close to Disney World.
His hospitalisation was announced the day after far-right protestors trashed the presidential palace, Congress, and Supreme Court in the Brazilian capital, eerily similar to the January 6, 2021 assaults on the US Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump, a Bolsonaro buddy.
Bolsonaro condemned the “pillaging” in Brasilia on Twitter Sunday night, but dismissed Lula’s assertion that he incited the violence, upholding the freedom to “peaceful protests.”
Bolsonaro has had a string of health issues since the knife assault that almost killed him during the 2018 campaign that propelled him to the president.
He’s had six operations since the stabbing, which was carried out by an attacker who was judged mentally incompetent to face trial.
