The United States was reportedly to give Brazil a major non-NATO ally status, which will give Brazil preferential access to the purchase of US military equipment and technology.

US President Donald Trump has welcomed one of his biggest fans in world politics to the White House - a Brazilian leader who shares his views about immigration, fake news and supports his border wall.

A senior USA administration official, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity, noted that Brazil has a close relationship with Venezuela's military and may be able to serve as a go-between with the security forces that continue to support Maduro. At others it means closely aligning with newly elected leaders, such as President Emmanuel Macron of France (though Mr Trump's onetime friendly relationship with Mr Macron has since soured).

When talk emerged last autumn of a "Trump of the Tropics" running for president in Brazil, the actual US President took keen interest. Trump said. "The job you've done during a very tough period of time is just fantastic, and I know your father appreciates it, that I can tell you".

Trump himself has never wasted breath over worldwide LGBTQ civil rights, whether it's him uttering nothing about the confirmed torture and murder of gay men in Chechnya, for example, or neither him nor his vice president caring to acknowledge the struggle of gay men throughout the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Bolsonaro, who will also meet in Washington with the head of the Organization of American States (OAS), is scheduled to return to Brazil on Tuesday. "We think that we have, really, a historic opportunity to re-frame hemispheric relations with this North-South axis". "President Bolsonaro and I are both committed to reducing trade barriers, facilitating investment, and supporting innovation across a range of industries, particularly energy, infrastructure, agriculture, and technology", he said.

"For the first time in a while, a pro-America Brazilian president arrives in DC", he said in the tweet.

The U.S. official told reporters that Brazil's efforts on economic and regulatory reform were welcome.

Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said despite his concerns for Bolsonaro's rhetoric, he would give Bolsonaro "the benefit of the doubt", emphasizing Brazil's importance to the United States.

Trump and Bolsonaro also celebrated their joint efforts to oust Venezuela's left-wing leader, Nicolas Maduro.
