now from brazil's biggest city sao paolo some boss or not has just been speaking tell us what he said. so also remade his first speech in brazil's national congress now just after having being sworn in and yet really doubling down on the he's conservative campaign by strich he made to. liberalizing loosening gun restrictions in brazil to combat seeing what he sees as the spread of leftist ideology in schools. also also saying that you know he promised a brazil without divisions and without discrimination and also. praised the police officers to bring down he's tough nor are all of he said many times that he wants to give police officers in brazil called the launch to kill suspects so very much doubling down on his conservative campaign
8:03 pm
