Bolsonaro's rise has likewise alarmed United States liberals.

His brash style and harsh statements have led many to compare him to the U.S. president, referring to him as "Trump of the tropics" or "Brazil's Donald Trump".

For Bolsonaro's opponents, however, the bitterness runs deep.

Bolsonaro could be a vital partner for Trump on two of his loneliest worldwide battles - climate change and Israel. He is supported by the agribusiness lobby.

He has since backtracked on his pledge to leave the Paris accord.

Mr. Bolsonaro brings to high office the promise to reduce regulation and tax and boost investor confidence, and also the threat to more extensively exploit Brazil's vast natural resources, including the Amazon rainforest; he has proposed to build a highway through it.

Bolsonaro appeared in public Tuesday for the first time as president-elect.

Bolsonaro will also be starting his administration amid friction with China, which has invested billions of dollars in energy, infrastructure and oil projects in Brazil. He called refugees fleeing to Europe "human waste", raising eyebrows in African and Middle Eastern countries, and irritated China by visiting Taiwan, which Beijing considers to be a breakaway province.

Church spokesman Bouls Halim said the death toll in Friday's attack, in the Minya governorate south of Cairo, is likely to rise. As defense minister, el-Sissi led the military's 2013 ouster of an Islamist president, whose one-year rule proved divisive.


In interviews with TV stations and on social media, Bolsonaro, a 63-year-old former Army captain, who won 55 percent of Sunday's vote and will be sworn in on january 1, made clear he would not waste time in pushing through his conservative agenda.

"In the wake of the IPCC's dire warnings earlier this month that we have just twelve years to avert a climate catastrophe, the UN Secretary General said that "...we need to end deforestation and plant billions of trees".

Bolsonaro who has shaped himself as the "Tropical Trump" - a pro-gun, anti-establishment crusader, told his 1.9 million Twitter followers ahead of what some call the most important election in Brazilian history "WE'RE GOING TO TURN BRAZIL INTO A GREAT NATION".

Brazil for decades has emphasized multilateralism over alliances.

Bolsonaro supporters carried out physical attacks and organized campaigns of online harassment in the run-up to Sunday's vote, targeting journalists in particular, according to a tally kept by Abraji, an investigative journalism group.

Foreign policy, trade, maintaining the order: the neighbors of Latin-american of Brazil are preparing for the impending arrival of Jair Bolsonaro, the first president of the far-right has promised to make a drastic shift to the major power of the region.

Bolsonaro, 63, said he planned to govern "following the teachings of God, alongside the Brazilian constitution and with good technical advice, without political leanings".

Similar to Trump, who pulled the USA out of the accord, Bolsonaro has said it's a bad deal for Brazil, home to the lion's share of the Amazon rainforest.
