Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right leader compared to Trump, won Brazils presidential election
Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right politician who has garnered comparisons to President Donald Trump, has won Brazil's presidential election, marking a dramatic shift to the right in the country's political landscape.
Bolsonaro, a member of the Social Liberal Party, won 55.2% of the votes in a run-off election against left-wing challenger and former Mayor of São Paulo Fernando Haddad of the Worker's Party, according to the country's electoral authority.
The 63-year old former army captain has been criticized for his at-times misogynistic, homophobic, and militaristic views, but has amassed large numbers of supporters for his outspoken rhetoric. He has promised to clean up politics and crack down on crime, Reuters said. His rise has been propelled by a rejection of the leftist Worker's Party that has governed Brazil for over a decade.
"We cannot continue flirting with socialism, communism, populism and leftist extremism ... We are going to change the destiny of Brazil," he said in his acceptance speech, Reuters reported.
In September, Bolsonaro was nearly stabbed to death at a campaign rally, but continued campaigning while recovering from the incident. Tens of thousands of protesters gathered across the country to protest his return home after the stabbing.
Michel Temer, the current president of Brazil, said he spoke to Bolsonaro to congratulate his victory.
"I just congratulated the president-elect Jair Bolsonaro for the historic victory won today. After the election, it's time for everyone, united, to continue working for Brazil," he wrote on Twitter.

Next to the exit, there was the member services desk. The returns at Sams Club are very similar to Costco, accepting returns on any items with a 90-day limit on electronics and appliances. After shopping at both stores, I found that they offer almost identical services for members. Even though Sams Club is less expensive to become a member, ultimately it may come down to which store is closer to you
