Caracas on Statements on Country's Future by US, Brazilian Leaders: 'Dangerous'

President Donald Trump clapped Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on the back Tuesday for tossing the phrase "fake news" into his remarks.

Bolsonaro, who is a right-wing populist, praised Trump after he described past administrations as being "anti-U.S".

They are on the same page in their stance towards Venezuela, which borders Brazil, and their comments on the issue at the press conference will be closely watched.

As well as a "private meeting" with Trump in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Bolsonaro will hold talks with OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro and take part in various forums to promote economic opportunities in Brazil.

China long ago surpassed the United States as Brazil's biggest trading partner and Bolsonaro's economy minister on Monday urged the United States to open its market more to Brazil if it wanted to change the status quo.

Trump was the first foreign leader to call Bolsonaro to congratulate him on his election victory in October.

Bolsonaro, whose conservative rise, attacks on the media, and freewheeling style have drawn comparisons to Trump, dined Sunday night along with the exiled former Trump confidant and other conservative commentators.

Earlier Tuesday, the United States and Brazil signed an agreement to support American space launches from Brazil.

Bolsonaro isn't the only one who's adopted Trump's pet phrase.

Mr Trump affirmed that was in order during the afternoon news conference - and even said the country could eventually join NATO itself, although it is not situated in the North Atlantic region.

The long-range Model Y with a range of 300 miles, is set to arrive in the fall of 2020 and will come with a price tag of $47,000. Top speed is 209 km/h, and Musk also assures that it "ride [s] like a sports auto ... really tight in corners".

On Tuesday, Trump and Bolsonaro gushed about the possibilities for partnership after decades of what Bolsonaro called "anti-American" leadership, and shared goals of expanded trade, an upgraded military relationship and a new agreement for USA use of Brazil's space launch facility.

"I'm very proud to hear the president use the term 'fake news'".

National security adviser John Bolton traveled to Brazil to meet with Bolsonaro a month after his election, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended his inauguration.

"We're very inclined to do that", Trump told reporters, describing the relationship between the two countries as better than ever.

The former paratrooper is vehemently opposed to leftist currents, both at home and overseas, and he shares the United States president's hostility to the "dictator" Maduro, who took over after the death of socialist leader Hugo Chavez in 2013.

"May I voice my adoration and recognition to President Trump on this lovely day where we seal a promising alliance between the two most promising and largest democracies in the Western Hemisphere".

Trump also said he supported Brazil's efforts to join the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), a club of the world's advanced economies. "The vast majority of potential immigrants do not have good intentions".

"We want to have a great America, yes, and we want to have a great Brazil, too", a smiling Bolsonaro said through an interpreter. Not once did he challenge the claim that they are both fighting against basic civil rights for LGBT people.

"We've done, I would say, right down the middle, but we can go a lot tougher if we need to do that", Trump said.

Trump warned on Tuesday that the United States could impose "a lot tougher" sanctions on Venezuela as he urged the country's military to depose leftist leader Nicolas Maduro. Bolsonaro said "re-establishing democracy in Venezuela is a shared interest" with the US.
