  • Brazilian Officials Criticize One-Sided Negotiations With U.S.

    U.S. President Donald Trump praised Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro during the Brazilian leader's visit to the White House this week. Reuters reports officials said Brazil got few concessions in return for granting a unilateral visa waiver for U.S. visitors, a tariff-free quota for wheat imports and access for U.S. space launches from Brazil. Bolsonaro, a right-winger and admirer of Trump, failed to win an increase in Brazil’s sugar exports or to overturn a U.S. ban on Brazilian beef. A Brazilian official involved in the negotiations said, “They asked for everything, but didn’t want to cede on anything.” Welber Barral, a former Brazilian foreign trade secretary, said, “If this reciprocity does not occur, Bolsonaro’s preference for the U.S. will look naive in the future."
