The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump's allies held discussions with aides to the Brazilian President to contest his loss in the presidential election.

The Brazilian president's son visited Mar-a-Lago, where he met with Trump, and also spoke with other people, according to the Post.

There were conspiracy theories about the use of voting machines to steal elections after former President Donald Trump's adviser, Steve Bannon, praised the protesters in Brazil.

"What's happening in Brazil is a world event," said the strategist. People are saying that they've been left out. In the US, the movement has moved beyond Trump.

After being defeated in the presidential election, Bolsonaro stepped aside to allow the transition to take place.

Bolsonaro demanded that votes be thrown out due to a software issue after formally challenging the election results on Tuesday.

After the 2020 US presidential election, Trump and his allies baselessly claimed that victory had been stolen from them by using voting machines.

He was sentenced to four months in jail by a federal judge for refusing to comply with a subpoena to testify before the congressional panel probing the January 6 Capitolriot.

The case doesn't seem to be going well.

On Wednesday, the head of Brazil's electoral court rejected an attempt by the Liberal Party to overturn the results, as well as fining them $4.3 million for bad faith.

Since Bolsonaro's defeat, his supporters have held protests, blocking roads and calling for the army to intervene.

During Trump's time in office, they both championed a right-wing populism.
