During a dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, President Trump praised the strong relationship between the two countries. On Saturday evening, the president hosted Bolsonaro at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

“Brazil is doing very well, and he’s an incredible leader,” he said of Bolsonaro.

The two leaders were reportedly slated to discuss the ongoing crisis in Venezuela as well as forest conservation.

While the president highlighted the great job the president of Brazil was doing, he did not rule out imposing tariffs on aluminum and steel.

“We have a very good relationship as to tariffs. We’ve helped Brazil, and we will always want to help Brazil. The friendship is probably stronger now than it has ever been, (but) I don’t make any promises.”

– Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States

The president initially brought up the idea of tariffs in December after he accused the country’s government of currency manipulation.
