Bolsonaro, like his father, strongly opposes socialism and also opposes Venezuela's Maduro regime. He has called for Brazil to build nuclear weapons to protect its national security. In March 2019, he joined The Movement, an organization founded by Steve Bannon. In October 2019, Bolsonaro became the Social Liberal Party's whip in Brazil's lower house. He also served as the chair of the house's foreign affairs committee.
In 2019, Bolsonaro's father nominated him to serve as Brazil's ambassador to the United States, but Eduardo withdrew his nomination after facing opposition from the more liberal Brazilian Senate.
