Another big nation moving embassy to Jerusalem

Brazil's President-elect Jair Bolsonaro salutes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

"I made a lot of money and saved money to buy the ticket, to be able to buy the plane ticket because it's a long way to come by auto but we managed to make it all the way to be here on this day for President Bolsonaro's inauguration".

Bolsonaro promptly thanked Trump, adding: "under God's protection, we shall bring prosperity and progress to our people!"

With Bolsonaro's inauguration, Latin America's two biggest economies are now in the hands of anti-establishment populists. But while López Obrador won a reputation as a pragmatist while in a previous job as mayor of Mexico City, the new Brazilian leader appears more unpredictable.

"The danger is that as a former low-ranking military officer, (Bolsonaro) will be swayed by some of the generals to come down hard on criminality, drug dealers, etc., and that may cause a backlash and many innocent people could be caught in the crossfire", Roett said. Lawmakers who support the new president greeted him in Congress on Tuesday by pointing their fingers in the shape of a gun.

That move, though, could be challenged by Congress. Bolsonaro will need to mediate between the country's three dozen political parties, which will demand compromise and political skill.

His past remarks made it clear he was referring to policies implemented by the Workers Party, which governed between 2003 and 2016 but ended up reviled for a string of corruption scandals.

Among them was Lorena Abdaba, 32, a professor who travelled 33 hours by bus from her native state of Espirito Santo to attend the inauguration. Whether Brazil, which has the largest chunk of the Amazon basin in South America, formally stays in the accord may be all but irrelevant: Scientists say the country won't meet its targets on emissions reductions if Bolsonaro does what he has promised.

American forces are still stationed in and around the town of Manbij. "Within the framework of the phone call we had with Mr. The town of Manbij has been one area of friction between the U.S. and Turkey, which has vowed to clear the area of the YPG.

The incoming president, who spent almost three decades in Congress, has also drawn global criticism for his plans to roll back regulations in the Amazon and his disinterest in social programs in a country that is one of the world's most unequal in terms of income.

Several senators on both sides of the aisle have accused Trump of making a hasty decision, with one administration official saying "the President's decision-by-tweet will recklessly put American and allied lives in danger around the world".

President Donald Trump in May officially moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, after announcing in December 2017 that he would recognize Jerusalem as the nation's capital.

US State Secretary Mike Pompeo on Tuesday discussed Iran's "regional aggression" with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the US State Department said in a statement.

Similar to the election of Donald Trump in the USA, the inexperienced and controversial Bolsonaro is believed to have been swept into office by Brazil's Evangelical Christians, who were fed up with long years of corrupt and ineffective governance by liberal lawmakers.

Mr Bolsonaro's key campaign promises were to drive down crime and to stamp out corruption, which has seen scores of top businessmen and high-ranking politicians, including former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, jailed.
