A former army captain, Jair Bolsonaro took office as Brazil’s president in January of last year, ending 16 years of left wing rule in the country.
He has held firm on his hardline ideology at home and abroad, in an approach that has delighted his supporters but also alienated some of his allies.
His popularity is declining and reached the lowest level for any elected first-term Brazilian president.
