Senator Flavio Bolsonaro, son of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, on Tuesday wrote on Twitter his father would return to Brazil next week but deleted the post a few minutes later, saying the date was not confirmed.

“I’m sorry for the previous post, I might be missing him a lot,” Flavio said, adding the March 15 date he had previously announced for the former president’s return was “likely but still unconfirmed.”


Bolsonaro has been in self-imposed exile in the United States since late December, having flown to Florida 48 hours before his opponent and successor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was sworn in.
