The President of the United States congratulated Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, which opens the possibility of improving communication between the two nations, due to the acrimonious relationship between Joe Biden and Jair Bolsonaro

United States President Joe Biden congratulated Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on Sunday for his victory in the presidential elections in Brazil, which he described as “free, fair and credible.”

Through a statement released by the White House, the president sent a message to the winner: “I send my congratulations to Luis Inácio Lula da Silva on his election to be the next president of Brazil in these free, fair and reliable elections. I look forward to working together to continue the two countries’ cooperation in the coming months and years.”

“We look forward to continuing our strong collaboration with the president-elect as we build a democratic, prosperous and equal hemisphere,” concluded the head of US Diplomacy.

Prior to the elections, the one who strongly criticized Lula was former US President Donald Trump, who called for a vote for Jair Bolsonaro, whom he described as a great and respected leader, “who also happens to be a great guy with a big heart.” .

“His opponent, ‘Lulu,’ is a radical leftist lunatic who will quickly destroy his country and all the tremendous progress that has been made under President Bolsonaro, including making Brazil a respected country again,” he added. Trump.
