WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday pledged “complete support” for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has engaged in a war of words with French President Emmanuel Macron and suggested he may reject a $20 million offer from the Group of Seven nations to fight forest fires in the Amazon rainforest.

“He is working very hard on the Amazon fires and in all respects doing a great job for the people of Brazil - Not easy. He and his country have the full and complete support of the USA!” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
