Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has been residing in Florida after losing the presidential election in October and the subsequent inauguration of President Lula da Silva on January 1st. On Sunday, his supporters stormed Brazil's Congress and presidential offices, protesting what they falsely claimed was a stolen election. Bolsonaro, who has long questioned the reliability of Brazil's election systems without evidence, called on his supporters to avoid violence and suggested they move on. He later criticized the protests, saying on Twitter that peaceful demonstrations are part of democracy, but the destruction and invasion of public buildings were not. It is unclear how long Bolsonaro plans to stay in Florida, and there is speculation about whether he could face criminal charges in Brazil over the attack that took place.
