While many world leaders have congratulated Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for winning the 2020 U.S.election, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is remaining silent.

The conservative Brazilian leader has a similar right-wing populist base in Brazil that PresidentTrump has courted, and Bolsonaro has joined President Trump in the fight for justice against the globalist dictatorship agenda and has announced his plans to wait “a bit longer” before recognizing Joe Biden as president-elect, reported OANN.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Nov. 29,  while casting a ballot in municipal races, he also echoed President Donald Trump’s allegations of irregularities in the U.S. vote. Bolsonaro said he knows there was widespread fraud in the 2020 U.S. elections, although the evidence may not be sufficient to change the election result to favor President Trump.

“It is one of those countries that is the ‘mother of democracy,’” Bolsonaro stated. “Now, the media does not report on this but I have my sources of information. It’s no use talking to you, they won’t disclose it, but there was a lot of fraud there.”

Bolsonaro said the Trump team’s legal arguments must be allowed to run through the judicial system before any winner can be announced.

Criticizing Brazil’s voting system also, Bolsonaro said switching to paper ballots would be a more secure way of conducting elections. He is urging the country to revert to paper ballots for the 2022 election.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said he would not congratulate Biden on winning the election until all legal challenges are resolved.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also won’t congratulate Biden, before the election results are officially announced, despite the Trump administration approving the formal presidential transition process, said the Kremlin on Nov. 24.

President Trump tweeted  that it was time for the General Services Administration to “do what needs to be done.”

…fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

“No, that’s not enough,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters when questioned whether Trump’s tweet was a reason for Putin to congratulate Biden.

“You know that reviews and recounts in some states are still continuing, without which the results of the election cannot be officially announced,” Interfax quoted Peskov as saying.
