Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday demanded an apology from France before he will accept $20 million in aid to fight wildfires in the Amazon rainforest. Canada and Britain also pledged an additional $12 million and $11 million, respectively, during the G-7 summit of major economic powers in France over the weekend. Bolsonaro accused French President Emmanuel Macron of undermining Brazil’s sovereignty and asked him to retract his comments.
