From now on I am the president of all Brazilians.
I am committed to honoring women, to protecting the most vulnerable and to govern for all.
There is still poverty shaming our country. I will not rest while there are Brazilians without food on their table, homeless in the streets and poor children abandoned to their luck.
Lula, who blamed blue-eyed folks for the global economic woes, conned folks into giving Brazil the 2012 World Cup and 2016 Olympics knowing he would not be the one responsible should they fail.
