“‘Portugal is experiencing the fifth worst crisis in 150 years,'” said Jair Bolsonaro, holding a page from a February issue of the newspaper Express, during a live week that directs from their social networks to their supporters.
“There’s a girl from Juíz de Fora (the same city in Minas Gerais where she was attacked with a knife), who is in Portugal, who has been sending me videos, I think her name is Liz, in supermarkets, in gas stations, showing how the critical situation is there in Portugal as well, “added the president of Brazil. Before and after, Bolsonaro presented press clippings from Germany, Great Britain and India – the objective was to demonstrate that “this crisis is worldwide, not just in Brazil”.
Minutes before, Bolsonaro had said that Brazil will suffer a supply crisis. “Due to the energy crisis, China is starting to produce less fertilizers, the price has already increased, it will increase more and there will be a shortage, for every five dishes in the world, one leaves Brazil, we will have supply problems next year “
The information provided by the Broad National Consumer Price Index, considered official information for the country, increased from 0.87% in August to 1.16% in September, according to data released this Friday (October 8) by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics. It was the highest rate for the months of September since the beginning of the Real Plan, in 1994, when the index was 1.53%.
As a result, the index not accumulated in 12 months reached 10.25%, which did not occur for more than five years. It is also the highest annual rate since February 2016, when it was 10.36%.
According to Ricardo Kertzman, columnist for the magazine This is, the “Bolsonaro cost” generated the biggest economic crisis in Brazil. “We have more than 15 million unemployed (remember!), The lowest consumption of red meat in 26 years, the largest number of hungry (19 million) and people at serious food risk (45 million) or with some type of food risk (105 million). These numbers are unheard of!”
“All of this is conveyed by the combination of a disastrous boom, a weak economy and extreme unemployment. And, in large part, a guilt is unique to a psychopathic homicidal sadist, read Jair Bolsonaro“, completes the columnist.
