U.S. Presidential Hopeful Bernie Sanders Backs Lula's Freedom

Published 31 August 2019

The Democratic Senator rejects President Donald Trump's support to far-right governments around the world.

The United States democrat presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders made statements in favor of Brazil’s former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva release during a political rally held in Florence, South Carolina, on August 30.

At the event stage designated to answer questions from the audience, a young man asked the Democrat senator on his opinion regarding the emergence of far-right governments around the world.

One of them is currently headed by former captain Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, a country where a corrupt judicial investigation has kept the Workers' Party (PT) leader as a political prisoner since April 2018.

“Somebody has written to Brazilian authorities to get Lula out of jail; it is an issue that I feel very strongly about," Sanders said.
