Brazil ‘s past president, whom is currently serving a prison term,  was detained and arrested for unbelievable corruption earlier this year (and then there’s, of course, Dilma Rouseff). Bolsonaro is notoriously known as the “Trump of the Tropics”.

Rouseff, as of recent, stands accused of borrowing money and financial assets from state banks to close budget problems and gaps. Those actions, perhaps, have only bolstered the corruption claims within the government. Aides to Mrs. Rouseff have "already begun looking for new jobs" according to some, while others, are simply glad that the long battle is over within her p...
