Bolsonaro says he may nominate son as U.S. ambassador

Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro salutes during the swearing-in ceremony for the newly-named Secretary of Government Army General Luiz Eduardo Ramos at the Planalto Presidential Palace in Brasilia Brazil Thursday

Eduardo is the third child of the president, who has four sons and a daughter from three marriages, and has already advised his father on foreign affairs.

Despite being a congressman in the lower house, the third of Bolsonaro's four sons shadows his father on official trips overseas, including the recent G20 summit in Japan. Senate opposition leader Randolfe Rodrigues tweeted: "It's absurd that he's even being considered". "This is a complete mess".
