The problem for the military, but also for the other power groups that bet on Bolsonaro, is that his government is an absolute disaster. The economy, under the ministry of the ultraliberal Paulo Guedes, is a calamity. To make matters worse, when the pandemic hit, Bolsonaro was hyperbolically opposed to all social distancing measures. The results in health terms were so terrible that today Brazil is one of the countries with the highest number of deaths. In addition, Brazilian diplomacy was an absolute failure, it was never so ideological, so flat-earth, than with Ernesto Araújo as foreign minister. He ended up harming even the possibility of doing business.
While Donald Trump was in the White House, although he was not a complete ally of Brazil, he protected Bolsonaro, who was becoming a pariah in the Whatsapp Mobile Number List. But that changed with the arrival of Joe Biden. Now Brazil is no longer just a pariah but an international threat. More than a hundred countries prevent the entry of Brazilians. We have already passed 300,000 deaths and we could reach 500,000.
But there is not only an international rejection of his health policy, but also of his environmental policy, for example regarding the Amazon. From the internal point of view, the emergency income of 600 reais approved by Congress, in the first year of the pandemic, prevented the economy from falling even further (4.1% in 2020) and people from falling into a greater tragedy. . But now the amount of those transfers It will be less than half . For all this, Bolsonaro is losing support both among the elites and among the population.
