Brazilian president is now contradicting himself, where his pride got in the way of saving the lungs of our planet. Rejecting $20 million in foreign aid and later taking back his representative’s; words and mentioning he never said he is denying the aid. I guess maybe he did after the backfiring of the statement leaving the door half open for more negotiations.
This sum of money is a result of the collection form the G7 Summit occurring in France addressing the issue; but the president communication officers told CNN they will not be accepting the money.
Later the president confronting the reports with the following “Did I say that? Did I? Did Jair Bolsonaro speak?” well sorry Mr. president But you are responsible for what your communications office announces; and I’m sure they will do not make decisions on your behalf; nor they can communicate such statements without your prior approval.
