“We hope that, with the vaccine and with the pandemic issue being dissipated, it will no longer be necessary (emergency aid) but, if it continues, we will maintain emergency aid”, declared the president, without giving further details, in interview with 89 FM (SP) this Friday morning (30).

The speech represents a change in the speech of the head of the Executive, who throughout last year criticized the benefit, at the time, in the amount of R$ 600. Bolsonaro even went so far as to declare that he would like to allocate the amount used to pay the aid to the Minister of Infrastructure, Tarcísio de Freitas, invest in public works.
