On Tuesday, 27, Bolsonaro visited Operation Welcome, as the mobilization carried out to receive Venezuelan refugees in Roraima is called. In a live broadcast on Facebook, the Brazilian president was in tents used as shelters and service stations and showed children sleeping on mattresses on the floor. When speaking, he took the opportunity to criticize Nicolás Maduro, the Venezuelan president, and Lula. “What we want to show is that we don’t want this for our country. For our greater good, we need to see our freedom. Wrong choices lead to this. It’s those people from the Forum of São Paulo, always deceiving the people, inducing people to go to the left, associating themselves with socialism. The Brazilian president of the past was going to Venezuela to campaign with Chávez, Maduro”, declared Bolsonaro.
