US deputies charge ambassador in Brazil about favoring Trump

Two US deputies sent a letter to demand explanations from the United States ambassador to Brazil, Todd Chapman. Parliamentarians said they were “extremely alarmed” by the information that Chapman was using his post to favor the campaign for the re-election of Republican Donald Trump.

The letter was motivated by a news item published by O Globo, which reported that Chapman was lobbying to reduce ethanol import tariffs. Thus, it would seek favoring this commodity, produced on a large scale in the state of Iowa, key to the election of Trump.

The text was signed by deputies Eliot Engel, chairman of the US House of Foreign Affairs Committee, and Albio Sires, chairman of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, Civil Security and Trade.

They asked the ambassador to describe all conversations he had with members of the Brazilian government about ethanol tariff legislation and the American presidential election.

Democratic MPs considered Chapman’s statements, if true, to be “completely inappropriate for an American ambassador”.

In the letter, they said they were “extremely disappointed” with the statements made by Congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) about the electoral race. During the week, the son of President Jair Bolsonaro (without a party) published a video supporting the re-election of Trump.

“Despite [Eduardo] Bolsonaro having the right to free expression, it is not appropriate (…) to promote campaigns for candidates from the United States “, said the deputies.

During the week, Eliot had already spoken out against the position of Eduardo Bolsonaro.
