Israel's Netanyahu said would not resign during possible indictment hearing

Israel's Netanyahu said would not resign during possible indictment hearing

The Social Liberal Party candidate and former longtime congressman replied to Trump's congratulations, saying, "Together, under God's protection, we shall bring prosperity and progress to our people!"

During Tuesday's speech, Bolsonaro stopped at one point, pulled out a Brazilian flag and wildly waved it, prompting roars from the crowd.

A former army captain and outspoken supporter of Brazil's 1964 -1985 military dictatorship, during which time hundreds of political opponents were executed and thousands more tortured, until recently, Bolsonaro was largely considered a fringe politician best known for disparaging remarks against LGBT people, minorities and women.

Even before taking office Bolsonaro tweeted he will issue a decree easing gun laws so "good" citizens can possess weapons to deter criminals.

Netanyahu held the news conference during a trip to Brazil for the inauguration of President-elect Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday. The leftist Workers' Party, which dominated Brazilian politics from 2003 to 2016, boycotted the ceremony.

Even more hard may be injecting steam into the sluggish Brazilian economy, which analysts say will require broad austerity measures.

"We need to create a virtuous cycle for the economy that brings the necessary confidence to open our markets, for global trade, to stimulate competition, productivity and efficiency without ideological bias", he said.

Pension reform will be Bolsonaro's biggest challenge since he has yet to build a base in Congress, where he has eschewed the political horse-trading that has traditionally helped Brazilian presidents govern the nation of almost 210 million people.

Brazil will definitely move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, with only the date of the transfer to be decided, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a visit to Rio de Janeiro.

With U.S. President Donald Trump disengaging from the region, Hayman said, the Iranians may "see Iraq as a convenient theater for entrenchment, similar to what they did in Syria, and to use it as a platform for a force build-up that could also threaten the State of Israel". He has vowed to pull Brazil out of a United Nations global migration pact, and is considering doing the same with the Paris climate accord.

On the economic front, the new leader promised to "create a new virtuous cycle to open markets" and "carry out important structural reforms" to shore up a yawning public deficit.

BRASILIA-Jair Bolsonaro was sworn in as Brazil's president on January 1, and immediately called on Congress to combat endemic corruption and promised to "work tirelessly so that Brazil reaches its destiny". Temer, Brazil's most unpopular leader ever, faces a number of corruption accusation on leaving office.

Bolsonaro voters hope their man will do better.

A promise to Make Brazil Great Again, you might think.
