Brazilian President Bolsonaro steps back from Supreme Court battle

  • In a move that helped markets on Thursday, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro claimed he never intended to harm any branch of the government, as he attempted to resolve a conflict with the Supreme Court.

  • As pro-Bolsonaro marches took place across Brazil earlier this week, the president asked Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes to resign and claimed he would no longer obey his rulings, widening a schism with the court.

  • Pro-Bolsonaro truckers stopped highways across Brazil on Thursday, jeopardizing crucial export routes in the president's fight with the Supreme Court.

  • As emotions rose, Bolsonaro issued an official statement on Thursday afternoon, attempting to resolve his dispute with the Supreme Court, which he accuses of impeding his ability to rule.
