Public Radio International also reported this week: “A mere two days after impeaching Rousseff, the same senators voted to legalize the very budget tricks they accused her of playing.”

In his speech Wednesday, Fox News Latino adds, “Temer made a pointed appeal to United States investors that his country is open for business.”

In separate reporting by The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald writes that “what’s as revealing as Temer’s casual acknowledgement of coup-type motives is how Brazil’s large media—which united in favor of impeachment—has completely ignored his comments,”  thus “ignor[ing] the huge implications for what this illuminates about Dilma’s removal.”

“Just contemplate that,” Greenwald added, “the installed president of the country admits to a room full of oligarchs and imperialists in New York that he and his party impeached the elected president for ideological and policy reasons, not because of the stated reasons, and the entire big Brazilian press pretends that it never happened

According to British-Brazilian writer and athlete Juliano Fiori, “In removing the elected president for ostensibly political reasons, the impeachment of Dilma is a coup against democracy.” 

Temer was formally installed as president just hours after the August 31 impeachment of Rousseff, and has since faced protests. He will compete the rest of what would have been her term, serving through the end of 2018.
