RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, stood up for the embattled Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, on Tuesday, February 18th, minimizing the controversial statements he has made in recent weeks.
In the President's opinion, Guedes' statements, which had a negative impact, are no more than the Minister's "slip-ups".
"If Paulo Guedes suffers from occasional issues and attacks, it is much more due to his competence than to eventual slip-ups, which I have also committed a great deal in the past. Paulo didn't ask to leave, I'm sure he will . . .
