Bolsonaro has served seven terms in Brazil's lower house of Congress, the Chamber of Deputies, before being elected President.

After more than 20 years under military rule, Brazil returned to democracy in 1985. Bolsonaro who represents conservative Social Liberal Party (PSL - Partido Social Liberal) was elected president.

"Congratulations to President @jairbolsonaro who just made a great inauguration speech", Mr. Trump tweeted Tuesday. "Together, under God's protection, we shall bring prosperity and progress to our people!"

"Mr Bolsonaro told me it was "when, not if" he moves the embassy to Jerusalem", Mr Netanyahu said on Sunday at a meeting with leaders of Brazil's Jewish community in Rio de Janeiro.

Netanyahu last week announced a snap election, seeking a fresh political mandate that could help him weather possible charges in corruption investigations.

A far-right former army captain has been sworn in as Brazil's new president in the capital Brasilia.

On the sidelines of the presidential swearing-in ceremony, Czaputowicz was expected to hold talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Peruvian Foreign Minister NĂ©stor Popolizio Bardales, the Polish foreign ministry said on its website.

Emergency workers have evacuated residents of nearby sections of the building, fearing they could also tumble down. The rescue and search effort is being carried out involving 469 personnel and 66 pieces of equipment.

Netanyahu said they would "discuss the intense cooperation between Israel and the United States, which will also deal with the questions following the decision, the American decisions on Syria - on how to intensify even further our intelligence and operations cooperation in Syria and elsewhere to block Iranian aggression in the Middle East, to roll it back".

His team includes free-market economists, a judge who has led Brazil's anti-corruption investigation and several former military generals.

Pension reform will be Bolsonaro's biggest challenge since he has yet to build a base in Congress, where he has eschewed the political horse-trading that has traditionally helped Brazilian presidents govern the nation of almost 210 million people.

In an interview with Record TV on the eve of his inauguration, Bolsonaro lashed out at Brazil's notorious bureaucracy, which makes doing business in the country hard and expensive.

Bolsonaro is a former army captain with hard-right positions and he has often expressed admiration for Trump and says he plans to emulate several of the USA leader's policies. Such promises have appealed to swaths of the electorate in a country that saw more than 63,000 homicides a year ago.

"We are counting on Congress to provide the judicial support so police can do their jobs", Bolsonaro said, signaling that he may soon submit legislation that would allow police to be tried outside the criminal system.

His vow to follow Trump's example and pull Brazil out of the Paris agreement on climate change has anxious environmentalists. According to a report by the Israel Television News Company, the meeting's attendees stressed that Mandelblit did not consult with them about the case, and the matter came up as part of a general discussion on current events, including the Nation-State Law, the legal advisors bill and the Regulation Law.
