During his joint press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, President Donald J. Trump said he is considering how to add Brazil to the NATO alliance.
President Trump discussed the many similarities between the United States and Brazil during the press conference, eventually leading up to his suggestion that Brazil become a “non-NATO ally” or perhaps even a member of NATO.
“I also intend to designate Brazil as a major non-NATO ally, or even possibly if you start thinking about it, maybe a NATO ally,” said President Trump, “I’m going to have to talk to a lot of people, but maybe a NATO ally.”
The president also noted that the two countries are unified in their global fight against socialism, saying it has reached its “twilight” in the West.
“The twilight hour of socialism has arrived in our hemisphere, and hopefully by the way, it’s also arrived, that twilight hour, in our great country, which is doing better than it’s ever done economically,” said President Trump, “The last thing we want in the United States is socialism.”
He also thanked Brazil for its unwavering help in providing humanitarian support for the people of Venezuela, and calling for illegitimate President Maduro to step down.
President Trump also stressed that Brazil and the United States make up the two largest economies and democracies in the Western hemisphere, and noted the South American country’s contribution to the allied efforts in World War 2.
When a journalist asked President Bolsonaro about whether he would allow the United States military on Brazil’s soil to aid in the humanitarian efforts regarding Venezuela, President Bolsonaro reiterated the discussion of a potential alliance.
“We have discussed the possibility of Brazil becoming a great ally, extra-NATO,” said the Brazilian president.

OPINION: Joe Biden is Too Old to Be President
He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day, by far.
Joe Biden is too old to serve as President of the United States.
He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day. By far. President Trump currently holds the record for the oldest President to be sworn in, entering office at the age of 70.
Biden would smash that record by almost a decade, assuming the presidency at the ripe age of 78 in the event of a November victory. He’s 77 right now and turns 78 in late November. President Trump is a full presidential term younger than Biden, and would stand to leave office in 2025 at roughly the approximate age that Joe Biden is now.
No President has even served in the office in their 80’s. Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan left office at the ages of 70 and 77 respectively, with the natural process of aging beginning to show itself at the end of the Gipper’s second term. American Presidents have generally left office in their early-to-mid 60’s or even fifties, a pattern that endures even into the late 20th century when advancements in medicine considerably increased the life expectancy of Americans.
Some commentators have lamented that the 2020 election is a final showdown between politicians of the Baby Boomer generation. But that analysis ignores that Joe Biden is actually too old to qualify as a Baby Boomer, having been born in 1942, making him a member of the Silent Generation.
The argument for Biden’s advanced age as a disqualifier stands independently of the former Vice President and career politician’s serious, enduring and consistent indications of cognitive decline. Even the healthiest of individuals in Biden’s age demographic are often and suddenly liable to health challenges, a burden that would be improper to place upon Biden and the American public.
Opposing Biden’s candidacy on the basis of his age is not a slight to senior Americans. Many Americans of his age demographic would admit their sharpest years are behind them. There’s a reason why tens of millions and Americans have saved and worked for decades for purposes of retirement in their elder years, and why American society is broadly supportive of Social Security benefits that enable our elders to enjoy the lifestyle they deserve in their 70’s and 80’s.
Joe Biden is too old to be President.
