The pair were surrounded by dozens of guards on horseback and plain-clothes bodyguards who ran alongside them. "Myth! Myth!"- a nickname that began years ago with internet memes of Mr Bolsonaro and became more common during last year's campaign.

"This is the beginning of Brazil's liberation from socialism, political correctness and a bloated state", Bolsonaro, 63, said in an address to the nation made after he donned the presidential sash.

"Congratulations to President @jairbolsonaro who just made a great inauguration speech", the United States president tweeted. Bolsonaro was stabbed in the stomach in a September attack by a knife-wielding lone assailant.

Emails seeking comment on the judge's ruling were sent to Spacey's attorneys and the district attorney's office handling the case. According to a court filing obtained by CBS News, Spacey also indicated he would plead not guilty.

Mr Bolsonaro is the latest of several far-right leaders around the globe who have come to power by riding waves of anger at the establishment and promising to ditch the status quo.

There are also concerns for Brazil's extensive and diverse environment, with Bolsonaro's pro-business push being made at the expense of preservation - especially in the Amazon, sometimes called "the lungs of the planet" and at risk from increasing deforestation.

Tens of thousands of people attended Bolsonaro's inauguration ceremony in Brasilia, which was held under tight security that included warplane patrols, anti-drone technology and multiple crowd barriers.

The spike over the Christmas period is "deeply concerning", the UK Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said the armed forces were ready to offer help if needed.

Bolsonaro supporters hope their man will do better.

The new president, who spent almost three decades in Congress, has also drawn global criticism for his plans to roll back regulations in the Amazon and his disinterest in social programs in a country that is one of the world's most unequal in terms of income. And Netanyahu said Bolsonaro had assured him that it was a question of "when" and not "if" Brazili was to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the city claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians as their capital. But Bolsonaro backtracked and revoked a pledge to quit the Paris climate accord, which Mr. Trump withdrew the US from in 2017.

And he has vowed to challenge the leftist governments ruling Venezuela and Cuba, while moving closer to ideological allies US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolsonaro, a vocal critic of media that voice opposition to him, has promised to cut advertising funds from state-owned companies to some media organizations.

However, Walton had confirmed before the game that the Lakers are taking a cautious approach to James' recovery. He has appeared in all 34 games this season and did not miss a game last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The leaders of those countries, and their ally Nicaragua, were excluded from the guest list to Boslonaro's inauguration, although Bolivia's leftwing President Evo Morales did get invited.
