Trump Volunteers The US To ‘Help’ With Fires In The Amazon

Donald Trump has volunteered the U.S. to help with fires in the Amazon following his conversation with Brazil President Bolsonaro, who has reportedly been slow to fight them.

On Friday, President Trump tweeted that he had a very exciting conversation with Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, who is currently facing a wave of criticism for his lack of action to face the raging fires in the Amazon rainforest, many of which were started intentionally by farmers.

While tweeting that the future trade prospects with Brazil were “very exciting” and praised his “strong” relationship with the country’s leader, Trump also volunteered the I.A. to “help” with the fires in the Amazon, around 10,000 of which have started since August 15, noting that “we stand ready to assist!”

“Just spoke with President @JairBolsonaro of Brazil,” the president tweeted on Friday. “Our future Trade prospects are very exciting and our relationship is strong, perhaps stronger than ever before. I told him if the United States can help with the Amazon Rainforest fires, we stand ready to assist!”

The Business Insider notes that the Amazon rainforest provides 20 percent of the world’s oxygen. Bolsonaro has advocated against environmental regulations and indigenous peoples’ rights in the Amazon region, which scientists fear that the unprecedented amount of carbon lost during fires could boost up climate change.

According to French President Emmanual Macron, the fires will be discussed at this weekend’s G7 summit in Biarritz, France, which Trump is attending.
