The man who stabbed Bolsonaro

Bolsonaro has sparked outrage among many in Brazil for his racist and homophobic comments on the campaign trail. The polls suggest he will get the most votes in the first round of the October presidential elections if former President Luis Inácio Lula da Silva remains blocked from standing. The front-runner Lula is unlikely to be able to run because he’s locked up in prison. Jair Bolsonaro is expected to win the first round in his absence, but he is in a hospital bed. One of Jair Bolsonaro’s key campaign messages is that he will try to turn around the growth in violent crime.
