Bolsonaro says his divine “mission” to be president “is not over”

Bolsonaro alluded to his “divine mission” to be President in a speech before an evangelical congregation in Florida, United States, a country to which he left a few days before the end of his term.

The former president of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro warned from his retirement in the United States that the “mission” of taking charge of the country that God entrusted to him “has not finished yet”in what is his first statement in this sense since he was defeated at the polls on October 30.

“It was an experience that I understand as a mission and if He understands it that way, I think that mission is not over yet,” he said during an intervention at an evangelical church in Orlando. “He knows the right time for everything,” he said, immediately receiving an “amen” from the attendees.

Bolsonaro also recounted during his particular homily at the Church of Nueva Esperanza, that while he was president he asked God what his “sin” would have been to be carrying out a position that only caused him “problems”, he can be heard saying in a series of videos published by the portal metropolises.

“Sometimes you don’t remember that you had a wife. It’s true. You come home and she is sleeping or when she went out, I was the one who was sleeping”, he recalled in relation to his wife, Michelle Bolsonaro, in Brazil since the end of January and already working for the Liberal Party (PL), what is expected of her that mobilizes the female electorate, a sector among which the former president never had a fishing ground for votes.

Bolsonaro also took the opportunity to protest the salary he has been receiving while he was president of Brazil, stating that one does not access the position to be financially rewarded. “Does anyone know how much my salary was in December of last year? 33,000 reais, that’s 6,000 dollars (almost 5 million Chilean pesos). It’s worth it?” he wondered.

In turn, he also criticized the pressure he received from “several political parties” that wanted to occupy a ministry – “it has always been like that in Brazil and it is now” – and the new government of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

“Setting up a ministry is not (…) ‘I want you’. First, you have to see if the person is qualified. See if he accepts because being a minister is not so rewarding when it comes to salary (…) If you compare my ministers with those who preceded me and those who are at the moment, the difference is enormous ”, she recounted.

While Bolsonaro extends his stay in the United States with no scheduled date for his return to Brazil, investigations against him continue for various reasons, some related to his attacks on institutions and the electoral system, about which he was sowing doubt even when he won in 2018.

Before his return, he is scheduled to participate in Washington alongside former President Donald Trump at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) from March 1-4.
