Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Saturday offered multiple eyebrow-raising predictions for his future — including death or prison.
“I have three alternatives for my future: being arrested, killed or victory,” Bolsonaro, who is running for reelection in 2022, said in a meeting with a group of evangelical leaders.
The far-right president later added another comment that seemingly disqualified the first two options.
“No man on Earth will threaten me,” he said.
Bolsonaro, who trails former leftist President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva in most polls, has been critical of Brazil’s electronic voting system, claiming it’s susceptible to fraud.
The president wants the country to switch to printed receipts for voting. He’s also threatened to not accept the results of the upcoming election.
The head of Brazil’s electoral court last week called the discussion to adopt printed ballots “a waste of focus” and defended the electronic voting system.
