Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on December 15 congratulated the United States President-elect Joe Biden for his victory. This development comes after the US electoral college votes formalized Biden’s victory. Taking to his official Twitter handle, the Brazilian President said that he will be ready to work with a new government and the US-Brazil alliance. 

During the tenure of Donald Trump, President Bolsonaro announced that the country’s relations with the United States are currently at their best. The US and Brazil also signed three trade facilitation agreements during a virtual summit. Speaking at the summit organised by US Chamber of Commerce, Bolsonaro said that the Brazil-US relations have elevated to “its best moment ever”. Trump had repeatedly expressed his wish to boost ties with Brazil, a country led by far-right leader, to provide a counterweight to Beijing.
