No desire to hand over office to his elected successor Lula on Sunday: the outgoing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is traveling to the USA – to Florida – shortly before the end of office.

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro (67) left the country two days before the end of his term in office. He drove from the presidential residence Palácio da Alvorada to the air force base in the capital Brasília and then took off in one of the presidential planes, local media reported unanimously on Friday. Accordingly, the plane landed in Boa Vista in the north of the country for a refueling stop and then flew on to Orlando in the US state of Florida. “I’m on the flight, I’ll be back soon,” Bolsonaro told CNN Brasil television.

Bolsonaro’s term ends on New Year’s, when his left successor Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (77) will be sworn in. Recently, it had already become apparent that the right-wing head of state, contrary to custom, would not take part in the handover.
