Son of Brazil President Bolsonaro joins Steve Bannon group
Feb 2, 2019
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s lawmaker son has joined a nationalist group founded by Steve Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s former adviser, the group said Saturday.
“I’m very proud to join Steve Bannon as the leader of The Movement in Brazil, representing Latin American nations,” Eduardo Bolsonaro was quoted in a statement released by the group.
Bannon, who left as White House strategist in August 2017 and had a public falling-out with Trump, started The Movement in Europe to transmit far-right nationalist values and tactics he hopes will win sympathizers seats in the European parliament.
Bannon said enlisting Bolsonaro, a deputy in Brazil’s Congress, was part of the group’s “pursuit of a populist nationalist agenda for prosperity and sovereignty for citizens throughout the world.”

When Steve Bannon described Brazil’s 2022 presidential election as the “most important of all time in South America”, the former Trump adviser had at his side a man as close as anyone to Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro — his son Eduardo. Introduced by Bannon at an event in South Dakota last year as the “third son of Trump from the tropics”, Eduardo has become his father’s trusted international envoy and ideologue, forging close ties to overseas conservative allies such as the Trump family. With Jair Bolsonaro facing an uphill battle to win a second term in October, in an election considered a critical test for democracy in Latin America’s biggest nation, Eduardo has joined his father in questioning Brazil’s electronic voting system and casting doubt on the supreme court. A former two-term president, leftwinger Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, is leading almost all polls by a wide margin but Eduardo believes the race is “tied”.
