Brazilian President Temer nominated Senator Aloysio Nunes as the new Foreign Minister Wednesday afternoon. The senator replaces former minister José Serra, who resigned last week due to health problems.

Temer chose Nunes over Sérgio Amaral, the current Brazilian ambassador to the U.S.

Not a Trump fan

Nunes has shown himself to be critical of the U.S. President Donald Trump on various occasions. Last November, the day election results came out, the São Paulo senator tweeted: “Trump is the drunken version of the Republican party. He is by far the worst, the most uncontrollable, the most exaggerated of his party.”

He then tweeted that he’d be watching Trump’s next moves quite carefully. In the following tweet, he wrote: “Now the only thing left to do is observe how he behaves as president of the U.S.”.

Nunes’s predecessor José Serra also had little love for the new U.S. President. Last year, the ex-foreign minister said to the Brazilian press that the thought of Donald Trump as the American president was a “nightmare”.
