I have always been labeled as anti-democratic and, unlike my accusers, I have always played within the four lines of the constitution, Jair Bolsonaro, via NBC News.

Current popular movements are the result of indignation and a feeling of injustice regarding how the electoral process occurred, Jair Bolsonaro, via AP.

Bolsonaro's comments have been read by some analysts as inflammatory.

He didn’t recognize his defeat, and sustains the suspense, Thomas Traumann, Independent Political Analyst, via AP.

But as he wants to continue to dominate, to be the leader, he maintains the possibility of peaceful demonstrations, Thomas Traumann, Independent Political Analyst, via AP.

Bolsonaro stated that he supports such protests as long as they remain somewhat peaceful.

Many of his supporters claim election fraud, similar to former President Donald Trump and his supporters.
