Bahrain Mirror: Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who is currently visiting Bahrain, posted a video on social media showing part of the suite, where he is staying in a Bahraini hotel.
The Brazilian president said the daily cost of his residence amounts to US$7,000, adding that "this is paid by the king of the country (Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa)."
"We know how Brazil lives. I can pay for this hotel here without any problem, and the taxpayer will be paying for this."
In the video, the president shows details of his residence - with a living room, bedroom, kitchen and an office - and comments "it's about the size of the apartment I lived in in Rio de Janeiro."
Bolsonaro opened his country's embassy in Bahrain on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, in the presence of Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al-Zayani.
Brazil's president is a far-right (extremist). He has many controversial statements and is considered a supporter of military rule.
