United States President Joe Biden condemned the protests and voiced support for President Inácio da Silva

Supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro have stormed the National Congress building in Brasilia  – in a move similar to Trump Voters’ January 6 invasion.

‘I condemn the assault on democracy’: Biden slams thousands of Bolsonaro supporters who STORMED Brazil’s Congress in Brasilia in January 6th-style attack – after refusing to accept new President Lula’s victory in ‘stolen’ election


United States President Joe Biden condemned demonstrators who stormed Brazil’s capital in protest of the nation’s presidential election results, calling the incident an ‘assault on democracy.’

In a Tweet on Sunday, Biden said supporters of Brazil’s former president Jair Bolsonaro were attacking the peaceful transfer of power in the nation, and cast his support behind newly elected President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

‘I condemn the assault on democracy and on the peaceful transfer of power in Brazil,’ Biden wrote. ‘Brazil’s democratic institutions have our full support and the will of the Brazilian people must not be undermined. I look forward to continuing to work with @lulaoficial.’

The supporters of far-right ex-President Bolsonaro invaded Brazil’s National Congress building, the Supreme Court, presidential palace and called for the military to overthrow President da Silva after Bolsonaro questioned the integrity of the election.

President da Silva has branded protestors who stormed Congress as ‘vandals and fascists’ – while the startling images from the day looked eerily similar to Trump supporters’ insurrection at the US capital, which happened nearly to the day two years ago.
