2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"Thank you very much everyone. Thank you. Today, I'm very thrilled to welcome President Bolsonaro of Brazil for his first visit to the White House. President Bolsonaro, I want to congratulate you again on your tremendous election victory last October. It was an incredible feat and really a truly incredible challenge and the end result was something the whole world was talking about. I also know that we're going to have a fantastic working relationship. We have many views that are similar and we certainly feel very, very true to each other on trade. I think Brazil's relationship with the United States because of our friendship is probably better than it's ever been by far."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"As I told President Bolsonaro, I also intend to designate Brazil as a major non-NATO ally or even possibly, if you start thinking about it, maybe a NATO ally. Have to talk to a lot of people, but maybe a NATO ally, which will greatly advance security and cooperation between our countries. Our nations are already working together to protect our people from terrorism, transnational crime and drugs and weapons trafficking, also human trafficking which has really become something that's come to the forefront of crime. Horrible, horrible situation. We look forward to an even deeper partnership and working together."
"In conclusion, may I say that Brazil and the United States stand side by side in their efforts to ensure liberties and respect to traditional family lifestyles, respect to God, our creator, against the gender ideology or the politically correct attitudes and against fake news."

President Donald Trump praised Brazil's new far-right leader Tuesday as he welcomed him to the White House Tuesday, congratulating Jair Bolsonaro for his "tremendous election victory" and calling it an "incredible feat."
In a Rose Garden news conference, Trump said President Bolsonaro's victory was "something the whole world was talking about."
Trump predicted the two would have a "fantastic working relationship," telling reporters as he opened the joint press conference that they have "many views" in common.
Trump also said he is "very strongly" looking at U.S. support for Brazil's effort to gain certain NATO privileges.
Brazil has been seeking the status of "major non-NATO ally," which is a step short of full NATO membership. That would allow certain financial advantages not available to non-NATO members.
For his part, Bolsonaro said it is time for the U.S. and Brazil to "overcome old resistances," adding that "today, Brazil has a president who is not anti-American," which he said is unprecedented.
Bolsonaro said the U.S. and Brazilian governments stand "side by side against... the politically correct attitudes and against fake news."
Days after taking office Jan. 1, Bolsonaro, a former army captain, said Brazil would consider letting the U.S. have a military base in the country as way to counter Russian influence in the region, particularly related to Brazil's neighbor Venezuela.
