"Bolsonaro didn't like the criticism of his speech"
BRASILIA - President Jair Bolsonaro expressed discomfort with criticism he received for his United Nations speech last Tuesday in New York, United States.
He said he watched his speech again and did not consider his positions aggressive. "Did you want to someone there saying "abobrinha" bullshit? He said.
"I was not offensive to anyone. I watched what I said, it would be much easier for me to give a speech to be applauded, but I would not have the courage to look at your face here," he said, speaking to people who were waiting for him in the room.
"It was a patriotic speech, unlike other previous presidents, who were there to be applauded and nothing more," Bolsonaro said.
Congress. The president admitted some defeats in Congress but he said he considered it "normal in democracy" because "he cannot impose his will on everything."
"Many topics that interest us are moving forward and others not, which is normal in democracy. I cannot impose my will on everything. Parliament has a necessary brake, sometimes we do not agree, but we have to respect," said Bolsonaro .
