Brazil’s First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro shows up to vote in the country’s runoff presidential elections wearing a T-shirt depicting an Israeli flag.
Her husband, President Jair Bolsonaro, is facing left-wing challenger and former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is slightly ahead in polls.
Bolsonaro, who enjoys the support of the country’s millions of evangelical Christians, pledged to move Brazil’s embassy to Jerusalem, but in the end opened a trade and investment office in the capital.
