President Donald Trump has the & # 39; full and full support & # 39; of the nation offered to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, despite his rejection of international aid to stop the rage in Amazon and his feud with French President Emanuel Macron.
Macron on Monday fumed that Bolsonaro insulted the appearance of his wife, Brigitte, at a G7 summit in Biarritz where Macron threatened to turn back to Brazil for trade and collected a $ 20 million package to help fight furious forest fires in the Amazon.
Bolsonaro has rejected the proposed firefighting aid and demands that Macron withdraw its comments.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has come under fire because he has not been able to stop the furious Amazon fires. He demands an apology from French President Macron after insulting Macron's wife
& # 39; I got to know President @jairBolsonaro well in our dealings with Brazil, & # 39; tweeted Trump on Tuesday morning and guaranteed Bolsonaro just a day after a public hug with his G7 host, Macron.
& # 39; He is working very hard on the Amazon fires and doing great work for the people of Brazil in every way – not easy. He and his country have the full and full support of the US! & # 39;
Trump took the heat to skip a meeting on the recently closed G7 summit in France on global warming. Trump was represented by an empty chair during the meeting. He said he met two other world leaders, but both were actually at the meeting.
In his conversation with Bolsonaro, Trump chose the side of a right-wing leader who was seriously criticized for not doing enough to stop the fires, many of which were deliberately built by farmers who wanted to clear land.
While the Amazon fires are becoming a global concern, Bolsonaro rejected the Macron-arranged aid proposal and compared it to the colonial rule of former Portuguese territory.
Macron destroyed the & # 39; disrespectful comments of Bolsonaro & # 39; against my wife & # 39;
President Donald Trump endorsed Bolsonaro's reaction to the fires and promised & # 39; full and complete & # 39; American support
Bolsonaro, pictured with his wife, has shared or posted several controversial messages on social media in recent weeks, including a video returned with violent yellow card protests in France with the headline & # 39; Macron being an idiot & # 39 ;, and calling it & # 39; a message & # 39; to the French leader on Friday
Macron (left, wife Brigitte) said that the comments from Bolsonaro (right) & # 39; extremely rude & # 39; were and added: & # 39; What can I say? It is pathetic. It is sad for him and Brazilians & # 39;

Asked if the answer came from Bolsonaro (pictured with wife Michelle) herself, a spokesperson for the Brazilian presidential palace refused to comment
It is after a Bolsonaro supporter has posted this meme to spot Brigitte Macron, 66, and unfavorably compare it with 37-year-old Michelle Bolsonaro in Brazil. It says: & # 39; Do you now understand why Macron is suing Bolsonaro? & # 39; The far-right Brazilian leader replied: & # 39; Don't humiliate the man, ha ha & # 39 ;, referring to Mr. Macron
& # 39; He had extremely disrespectful comments about my wife, & # 39; Macron said Monday. & # 39; What can I tell you? It is pathetic. It is sad for him and for Brazilians. I think Brazilian women are probably ashamed to read that their president did. & # 39;
A user had posted on the Bolsonaro Facebook page comparing Brigitte Macron, 66, with Bolsonaro & # 39; s wife Michelle, 37, and suggested that Macron was jealous. & # 39; Don't humiliate the man … haha, & # 39; Bolsonaro replied.
It had the slogan: & # 39; Do you now understand why Macron Bolsonaro continues? & # 39;
Bolsonaro has said that he will only accept an offer of international fire fighting assistance in the Amazon if the French leader Emmanuel Macron & # 39; insults & # 39; who are made against him.
Bolsonaro said Tuesday: & # 39; Before he speaks or accepts anything from France, even if it comes from the best possible intentions, he must retract his words. Then we can talk. & # 39;
Bolsonaro said his French counterpart had called him a liar and accused him of calling into question the sovereignty of Brazil amid tensions over devastating fires engulfing the Amazon.
Macron previously had the Brazilian leader & # 39; extremely rude & # 39; called.
Onyx Lorenzoni, Bolsonaro's chief of staff, shot back to Macron: & We appreciate (the offer), but perhaps those resources are more relevant to Europe's reforestation.
& # 39; Macron cannot even avoid an expected fire in a church that is on the World Heritage List, & # 39; he added, referring to the fire that tore through the roof of Notre Dame. & # 39; What does he want to teach our country? & # 39;
Bolsonaro tweeted: & We cannot accept that a president, Macron, is carrying out inappropriate and unnecessary attacks on the Amazon. Nor does he hide his intentions behind an & # 39; alliance & # 39; of the G-7 countries to save the Amazon & # 39; as if it is a colony or no man's land. & # 39;
Trump & # 39; s statement that Bolsonaro & # 39; very hard & # 39; working on the fire comes after the president at a press conference refused to say if he still doubts the science of climate change. Bolsonaro is also a skeptic of climate change.
Bolsonaro campaigned to open up the Amazon for development and was hammered abroad and at home because it was no longer done to extinguish the fires.
