Bolsonaro voters hope their man will do better.

Following a knife attack during the presidential campaign that left Bolsonaro hospitalised for weeks, security was tight for his inauguration.

"We know where we want to go and the potential that Brazil has". He has called for police to be shielded from prosecution for shooting criminals, and forgun laws to be eased for "good citizens" to counter armed criminals.
