President Trump is holding a joint press conference with Brazil president Jair Bolsonaro, the hard-right new leader dubbed the "Trump of the tropics" in a campaign in which he aligned himself closely with Mr. Trump.
It's Bolsonaro's first visit to the White House since taking office in January and Mr. Trump's first joint press conference with a foreign leader in 2019. A senior administration official told reporters on a conference call Monday U.S. and Brazil are reshaping their relationship, based on the "mutual respect" Mr. Trump and Bolsonaro have for each other. Mr. Trump, the senior administration official said, took notice when Bolsonaro invoked his name during the campaign.
