Brazil Will Reject $20 Million International Aid Offer for Amazon Fires

Brazil Will Reject $20 Million International Aid Offer for Amazon Fires .

The money was offered at the G7 summit in France on Monday.

.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro told CNN that his country will turn down the money.

.

Onyx Lorenzoni, Bolsonaro's chief of staff, suggested that the money should be used to help Europe instead.

.

We are thankful, but maybe those resources would be more relevant to reforest Europe.

, Onyx Lorenzoni, via G1 Globo.

Bolsonaro and his staff were critical of France and called the aid offer an attack on Brazil's independence.

.

Macron (France's president) is unable to avoid a preventable fire in a church and he wants to show us what is for our country?

He has a lot to look after at home.

, Onyx Lorenzoni, via G1 Globo.

Brazil is a democratic nation, free and never had colonial or imperialistic practices which might be (the) objective of Frenchman Macron.
