Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro left the Sao Paulo hospital on Sunday July 18, where he was treated for four days for an intestinal obstruction. Despite his hospitalization, the far-right leader continued to perform his duties and was very active on social media, posting photos and political comments.

“I had to go on a diet, I did what he had to, he told reporters as he walked out of the private Vila Nova Star hospital. I wanted to leave on day one, but they wouldn’t let me. “

“I hope that in a few days I will be able to eat a steak.”
