‘Brazil’s Donald Trump’ Brutally Stabbed During Rally

The man dubbed the “Brazilian Trump” was stabbed by a left-wing terrorist during a campaign rally in the city of Juiz de Fora just a month before Brazil’s election.

Bolsonaro will spend at least a week in the hospital and is facing a two-month recovery, according to initial reports. This represents a serious delay for the candidate as Brazil's election is just one month away.

Bolsonaro — a presidential candidate who doesn’t hesitate to speak his mind — has been frequently referred to as the “Trump of Brazil.” The leading presidential candidate has spoken out against same sex marriage, drug liberalization, affirmative action and other liberal policies. Like U.S. President Donald Trump, Bolsonaro has been a major critic of the Paris accord and has vowed to leave the agreement if elected president.

The conservative lawmaker is slated to win the presidential elections in October. The only other candidate polling above him is former left-wing President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva — a man who currently sits in a jail cell and has been barred from participating in the election.

The man who stabbed Bolsonaro was identified as Adelio Bispo de Oliveira, according to a report from the Guardian. His motive is not immediately clear.
