In the midst of his election campaign, Jair Bolsonaro opted for a less luxurious hotel on his visit to New York, compared to other trips made to the country. The president, who is speaking at the 77th General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) this Wednesday morning (20/9), is staying this time at Omni Berkshire Place, in the center of the city.
The four-star hotel has daily rates from R$4,200 to R$8,500. In the past, Bolsonaro stayed in the same area, but in five-star hotels like the Intercontinental and New York Barclay, which host Joe Biden, President of the United States. The Omni Berkshire Place building has only 11 floors and has five suites and one apartment. The hotel has a bar and an academic community and offers breakfast as a book service.The president’s press office declined to comment on the reason for the cut in Bolsonaro’s lodging budget.
In addition to Bolsonaro, Omni Berkshire Place received on Tuesday night, the president of Ecuador, Guilherme Lasso Mendonza, who will also visit the UN. But no movement by the Ecuadorian media or the country’s citizens took place in the vicinity of the hotel. Who gave work to the personnel of the Omni were the Brazilians, who had to be isolated. On the one hand, Bolsonaro supporters. On the other, critics of the president. Between shouts of “genocidal” and “Lula trash”, one of the hotel staff tried to avoid confrontations, saying “I like both sides however you need to keep range”, while flags from Brazil tried to overlap the posters with sayings against him.
