The money was offered at the G7 summit in France on Monday.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro told CNN that his country will turn down the money.

Onyx Lorenzoni, Bolsonaro's chief of staff, suggested that the money should be used to help Europe instead.

We are thankful, but maybe those resources would be more relevant to reforest Europe.

Bolsonaro and his staff were critical of France and called the aid offer an attack on Brazil's independence.

Macron (France's president) is unable to avoid a preventable fire in a church and he wants to show us what is for our country?

He has a lot to look after at home.

Brazil is a democratic nation, free and never had colonial or imperialistic practices which might be (the) objective of Frenchman Macron.
