“Brazil is the country is the future, and always will be.” So goes a popular and snarky saying. But with the recent election of Jair Bolsonaro, has the country reached a turning point?
With the Brazilian president in Washington now to meet with President Trump, Dr. Ryan C. Berg joined us to discuss. On this episode, we cover recent Brazilian history, who Jair Bolsonaro is and why he was elected, what to watch for from his meeting with President Trump, and much more.
Ryan Berg is a research fellow at AEI, where he studies Latin American foreign policy and development, as well as organized crime and narcotrafficking. Before AEI he earned a PhD from Oxford and was a Fulbright scholar in Brazil.
