Donald Trump Jr. was also supposed to attend but the storm in NJ forced him to participate virtually:
Was hoping to join my friend @bolsonaroSP in Brazil, but airport closures in New Jersey due to storm remnants delayed us. I’ll be joining virtually @cpacbrasil in a few minutes, and visit Brazil in the next few months! Tune in now: https://t.co/kLODggeXtq
