Truth Social: 

Congratulations to President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro on greatly “outperforming” inaccurate early Fake News Media polls & getting into a two person runoff, to take place October 30th, with a Radical Left challenger. Now that other Conservatives are out of the race, President Bolsonaro is in a very strong position to win BIG. More importantly, he will be victorious because the wonderful people of Brazil appreciate the great job he has done, and is doing. Tremendous Voter Surge over last 24 hours!

Jair Bolsonaro will face off against former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in a run-off election.

AP reported:

With 91.6% of the votes counted, former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the leftist Workers’ Party has a slight lead in the nation’s presidential election, with 47.3% support.

Incumbent Jair Bolsonaro is in second, with 44.2% support.

It appears increasingly likely neither of the top two candidates will receive more than 50% of the valid votes, which exclude spoiled and blank ballots, meaning a second round vote will be scheduled for Oct. 30.

The highly polarized election will determine whether the country returns a leftist to the helm of the world’s fourth-largest democracy or keeps the far-right leader in office for another four years.

Trump previously endorsed Jair Bolsonaro.
