Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro says he may nominate son as U.S. ambassador

Brazil's president said he is considering appointing his son ambassador to the USA, in line with Brasilia's stronger ties with Washington under his presidency.

"I did an exchange, I fried hamburgers", the federal lawmaker told reporters, a day after his father said he was considering appointing him to Brazil's most important diplomatic posting, sparking accusations of nepotism.

Bolsonaro said at a news conference Thursday that nominating his son is, in his words, "something on my radar".

Eduardo, who has close ties to the United States far right, also pointed to his role as head of the Foreign Relations Committee as further evidence of his suitability for the job.

The far-right Brazilian president, who said his campaign a year ago was inspired by US President Donald Trump, has made friendly overtures to the American leader and made similar use of family members as official advisers.

However, Eduardo Bolsonaro might have an advantage in that he is friends with Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to Donald Trump, with whom the far-right President Bolsonaro has formed a close alliance, O Globo quoted diplomats as saying.

He added the ultimate nomination still depended on conversations with his father and Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo.

The younger Bolsonaro turned 35 - the minimum age for ambassadors - just before his father announced his plans.

Eduardo would must resign as a congressman if he did occupy the discipline of ambassador.

Eduardo Bolsonaro, 35, who is now serving as a congressman and advises his father on foreign affairs, told reporters he would accept the post if it were offered.

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon named Eduardo the Latin American leader of his right-wing nationalist organization "The Movement".
