Araujo argued in his article that, unlike European leaders, Trump is saving western Christian civilization from radical Islam and "globalist cultural Marxism" by standing up for national identity, family values and the Christian faith.
The health ministry says almost 20,000 Cuban doctors have been working in Brazil since the program began in August 2013, part of the "white-coat diplomacy" practiced by the island's Communist rulers for decades.
Earlier in the day, Bolsonaro said that the Labor Ministry will maintain its status on his government, which will start in January.More news: Alexa voice shoppers get early access to these Amazon Black Friday specials
'We still do not have Bolsonaro as president and he already unprotects and owes about 8,000 doctors to his people, ' architect Manoel Rocha told Prensa Latina, referring to the withdrawal of that number of Cuban doctors due to the disdainful and offensive statements made by the elected governor. According to Brazil's O Globo, the ministry will soon launch a campaign to hire as many Brazilian doctors as possible and is considering student loan programs to make it easier for those wishing to enter the medical field to do so. The programme was originally meant to tackle the lack of doctors in peripheral and deprived areas of Brazil, which Rousseff deemed to have been neglected by the country's public health system. "They are in the Amazon, rural towns and in slums". During the last 55 years, a total of 600,000 internationalist missions have been accomplished in 164 nations, with the participation of 400,000 health workers who, in quite a few cases, have fulfilled this honorable task a couple of times. He also said Brazil had no way to verify if the doctors were truly qualified.
Bolsonaro hit back on Twitter.
The Castro regime responded to the demands by withdrawing entirely from the Mais Médicos program and accusing Bolsonaro of "threatening" the communist dictatorship. Bolsonaro said Cuban doctors who asked for asylum would get it, though he stopped short of saying Brazil would provide that to any Cuban who asked.More news: UK health service risks 350000 staff gap by 2030: thinktanks
Bolsonaro, who takes office January 1, said he had signalled the program could only continue if doctors directly received their salaries from Brazil, were able to bring their families during their assignments and had their credentials verified.
Cuba's Health Ministry states in a note released on Wednesday that the far-right politician "questioned the training of our doctors and conditioned their stay in the program to the revalidation of the diploma and individual recruitment as only way".
In response to these accusations, the Cuban government spoke with the Pan-American Health Organisation, who helped to implement the programme, in order to organise the country's withdrawal. "Doctors who work in the poorest areas are not just thinking about money".More news: Khloe Kardashian will spend Thanksgiving with Tristan Thompson
