Recently, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro used his invitation to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in the UK to upload a video in which he brags about how cheap fuel is in Brazil compared to the price of fuel in London.

In the video, he stands at a London gas station and points out that the price of fuel in London is twice as high as in many Brazilian states. He went on to say that Brazil has the cheapest fuel in the world. In the video, the electronic scoreboard shows that the price of fuel is £1.61. The clip was released the night before the Queen’s funeral.

This video was posted on Twitter by user sky news with the caption: “The President of Brazil used his trip to the UK for the Queen’s funeral to stop at a gas station and release a video about the cost of fuel.”

The user has indicated that elections are due in Brazil, so he is trying to win votes by claiming to have lowered fuel prices. The user added that the base wage in Brazil is low, so the price of fuel for its citizens is high.

The video drew a lot of criticism and some people even compared it to Donald Trump, calling it the “Brazilian Trump” in the comments section.

Some users also said that the President of Brazil, with his video, shows disrespect for the Queen and the UK.

The commenter wrote that he should not have been invited to the funeral and that he would hopefully leave the office in a month.

One person stated that £1.61 was not a high price for fuel and that it was much cheaper than in many areas outside of central London.

The user wrote that the price of gasoline is cheap compared to where he lives.

One person said that the price was lower than what he pays for a liter of fuel and that he did not live in wealthy areas of the UK. He added that the price is much lower for those people who have the money to pay for it.

Brazilians will vote for their president in October. For the first time, the only two candidates with a realistic chance of winning are the incumbent and former president Jair Bolsonaro and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, also known as Lula.
