    Default Lula (former president of Brazil) in jail

    "Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was spending his first night in jail, a stunning fall from grace for a man who rose from nothing to lead Latin America's largest nation and later became engulfed in corruption allegations."

    Foreshadowing possible clashes in the weeks to come, police shot rubber bullets and sprayed tear gas late Saturday at supporters waiting for da Silva as he landed in a police helicopter in the southern city of Curitiba, where he will serve his 12-year sentence for money laundering and corruption."

    "After running for president several times, in 2002 da Silva finally won. He governed from 2003 to 2010, leaving office an international celebrity and with approval ratings in the high 80s.

    Former U.S. President Barack Obama once called da Silva the "most popular politician on Earth.""

    yes the same Lula in this video:

    So i would say that (for now at least) is Brazil 1 USA 0! What happened to Trump's "Lock her up?" hah!!
