The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, visited this Friday for the first time since 2018 the city of Juiz de For a, where he was stabbed during the campaign to the presidential elections of that year.

The president has shared a video on his profile on the social network Twitter in which his entourage can be seen circulating while he, leaning out of a vehicle, greets supporters who have come to see him.

«I return to the place where doctors, nurses and health professionals and god gave me my second life. Thank you very much,» Bolsonaro wrote in the aforementioned Twitter post.

On the other hand, throughout his speech, the president has distanced himself from his responsibility for job creation and has asserted that it is not he who should generate jobs, but the private sector.

According to the Brazilian president, «whether it is a mayor, a governor or the president himself, he has the direct responsibility for jobs», according to the local newspaper ‘O Globo’.

«No government in the world can generate enough jobs for everyone, so the main thing is the private sector, but the government has to offer stability to the private sector, security, compliance with standards, infrastructure,» he acknowledged.

He also stressed that Brazilians who do not have jobs are because they lack academic qualifications, at which point he brought up the philosopher Paulo Freire, whom he criticized for his theory of maintaining «total freedom» in the classroom.
