Brazil’s Bolsonaro at UN: Defiant about fires burning in Amazon | Brazil News

Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsnoaro used his platform at the United Nations General Assembly to rebut his critics who say he is causing a global environmental catastrophe.

He instead said the Amazon was Brazil’s sovereign property and called the backlash against the fire a new form of colonialism.

Back home, opinion was divided over the president’s speech.
