Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who is seeking re-election in Brazil’s upcoming presidential election, has been criticized for his actions abroad.

During a visit to London to attend the Queen’s funeral, Bolsonaro delivered an election speech in front of his supporters from the balcony of the Brazilian embassy.
The Brazilian media strongly criticized the president for using the diplomatic visits he made as head of state as an election campaign while the world was in international mourning over the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The British media also criticized it as inappropriate treatment that did not respect the British people’s moment of mourning.
In addition, some Brazilian media reported that Bolsonaro attacked his presidential rival Luis Inacio Lula daciuba and enumerated his political achievements in a 20-minute speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on the 20th (local time). turning the UN podium into a campaign podium by spending a lot of time on his back.
