The 28-year-old has split opinion among his fans however, following his decision to speak with the country’s controversial president about tax issues in the country.
In the tweet, FalleN states that he spoke to the president about the country’s current tax regulations, with the AWPer writing that Bolsonaro showed that he is working on fixing the issues that gamers and esports players face in the country, which can see them pay almost 30% tax in some instances.
According to translations, the clip shows the pair introduce themselves, discussing the struggles the country faces in persuading people to invest, and the possibility of increasing it through the country’s tax reforms.
Acreditem se quiser hoje o @jairbolsonaro me ligou para mostrar que está avançando no que se refere aos impostos na área gamer em geral.
