– I am sorry that President Macron wants to make the internal issue of Brazil and other Amazonian countries important for personal political gain. The sensationalist tone with which he refers to Amazon (even appealing to fake photos) does nothing to solve the problem.

The French chose this macaron, however, we have already chosen Le Laderne, which is now in the cage … Iron in the macaron’s ass, not in the French …

A few days later, a follower of the president posted a photo of Brigitte and First Lady Michelle, saying that Macron was following them out of jealousy. Bolsonaro replied: “Don’t humiliate the man. Ha ha ha ha”. The comparison made reference to the ages of the two wives and suggested that Bolsonaro would have had an advantage as he was younger. In response, Macron called Bolsonaro “extremely disrespectful” and said he felt sorry for the Brazilians.
“We ask all Brazilians to be more and more aware of who this country is, this wonder is called Brazil. A unique country in the world, which has everything it takes to succeed and we need to rebuild it. Each of you is needed. And freedom comes first. (…) Our Brazil, green and yellow”, he highlighted.
“France is an example for us, not at all Mr. Macron. Macron is very well with Lula, and Macron is very well with Lula, they understand each other, they speak the same language” The President fired. “Macron always beat us on the issue of the Amazon, like something he and his predecessors had protected in France,” he said.
