Brazil moving its embassy to Jerusalem matter of when, not if: Netanyahu

And President Bolsonaro will move the embassy as well.

In an earlier inauguration speech, the 63-year-old former paratrooper had promised to "unite the people, value the family, respect religion and our Judeo-Christian tradition, combat the ideology of gender and preserve our values". Those stances energized conservatives and hard-right supporters after four consecutive presidential election wins by the left-leaning Workers' Party. In September, Bolsonaro was the target of a failed assassination attempt when he was stabbed at a campaign rally.

Environmentalists were aghast when Mr Bolsonaro announced that as part of his drive to streamline Brazil's government, he would merge the ministry of agriculture and that of the environment.

"I made a lot of money and saved money to buy the ticket, to be able to buy the plane ticket because it's a long way to come by auto but we managed to make it all the way to be here on this day for President Bolsonaro's inauguration".

After the update users now had to swipe left (or right) or tap through the posts in the app, like a modified horizontal scroll. Instagram's Head of Product tweeted that it had been part of a test that "went broader than anticipated".

He has promised to govern for all of the country's 210 million Brazilians, though his initial declaration suggests it will be on his terms, as he seeks to remake the country around his agenda. But Bolsonaro backtracked and revoked a pledge to quit the Paris climate accord, which Mr. Trump withdrew the US from in 2017. His intestine was pierced when a knife-wielding man stabbed and almost killed him, and today Bolsonaro wears a colostomy bag. But while López Obrador won a reputation as a pragmatist while in a previous job as mayor of Mexico City, the new Brazilian leader appears more unpredictable.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that the U.S. would continue to cooperate with Israel over Syria and in countering Iran in the Middle East, even as President Donald Trump plans to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

Many of his stances have also caused alarm in his detractors, who fear an increase in violence - particularly by police.

Right-wing foreign leaders attending the event included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

They killed the game four minutes later after Harry Winks was caught in possession and Costa was put through and converted easily. Some games can happen, this type of result, and now we need to move on and be sure we are ready for the next game.

Seven of Bolsonaro's 22 Cabinet ministers are former military personnel, more than in any administration during Brazil's 1964-1985 dictatorship.

The leaders of those countries, and their ally Nicaragua, were excluded from the guest list to Boslonaro's inauguration, although Bolivia's leftwing President Evo Morales did get invited.

Bolsonaro has already said he will do all he can to challenge the leftist governments of Venezuela and Cuba. Pompeo also referred to the IDF Operation Northern Shield, launched by Israel last month to seek and destroy Hezbollah attack tunnels dug under the Lebanon-Israel border, and said that the USA could appreciate the threat the structures posed to Israeli sovereignty.
