BREAKING: The Trump of Brazil Wins

It’s over. Jair Bolsonaro has won the runoff election in Brazil:

Jair Bolsonaro was declared the winner of Brazil’s presidential election on Sunday, according to the Supreme Electoral Tribunal.

Bolsonaro was declared the winner after 94% of the votes were counted.

The tribunal said it would provide more details during a press conference, which is scheduled to take place in the capital, Brasilia, shortly.

Bolsonaro’s victory against Fernando Haddad, a leftist ex-Sao Paulo mayor, caps one of the most polarizing and violent political campaigns in Brazil’s history.

Prolonged recession, rising insecurity and a massive corruption scandal that rocked political and financial institutions were among the many issues voters considered.

Bolsonaro won the first round of the elections this month amid a field of 13 candidates. But he fell short of the 50% needed to win outright and avoid a runoff against Haddad, from the Workers’ Party.
