BRASILIA, Brazil | The Latest: Brazil’s Bolsonaro sworn in a president
BRASILIA, Brazil — The latest on the inauguration of Jair Bolsonaro as Brazil’s new president (all times local):
Jair Bolsonaro has been sworn in as Brazil’s president. The former army captain is taking the reins of Latin America’s largest and most populous nation promising to overhaul myriad aspects of daily life and put an end to business-as-usual governing.
The New Year’s Day inauguration is the culmination of Bolsonaro’s journey from a marginalized and even ridiculed congressmen to a leader who many Brazilians hope can combat endemic corruption as well as violence that routinely gives the nation the dubious distinction of being world leader in total homicides.
