Activists are particularly anxious about the implications for the Amazon rainforest, the "lungs of the planet", which is already losing an area the size of Costa Rica to deforestation each year.

Thousands of Bolsonaro supporters cheered and set off fireworks outside his home in Rio de Janeiro's beachfront Barra de Tijuca neighborhood as his victory was announced.

Sebastian Munoz, senior programme officer for Latin America at the War on Want group, said Bolsonaro's verbal attacks on indigenous groups "is an attempt to vilify them and generate hate towards them to advance this idea of the need to generate economic growth".

"If (Bolsonaro) decides to move forward with his pledges against the environment, indigenous peoples and the climate, his fellow citizens will be the biggest victims", said Carlos Rittl, executive secretary of the Brazilian Climate Observatory.

Seleme added it would also bolster accusations from the Workers Party (PT), whose candidate Fernando Haddad lost to Bolsonaro in Sunday's vote, that Moro has a vendetta against the PT and worked to keep it from power.

In his television interview Bolsonaro - who recently threatened to exile or jail "red outlaws" - said he expected "fierce" opposition but would not seek "to crush" such dissent.

Besides Bolsonaro's aggressive statements, analysts don't know exactly how he will operate. "The lack of fiscal space, a high unemployment rate and a sluggish economic recovery will also likely limit economic policy options".

According to the legendary singer, it's not so much about stage fright as just general nerves for her. "I don't enjoy it. And today, she releases her new album Walls , which features the new anti-Trump song " Don't Lie To Me ".

In one of the incoming administration's first major policy announcements, Bolsonaro's pick for chief of staff, Onyx Lorenzoni, confirmed the agriculture and environment ministries would be combined.

"If Bolsonaro does what he says, Brazil will quickly become a pariah in the global community", said Rubens Ricupero, a former finance and environment minister.

The Globo newspaper, in a separate article citing unnamed sources close to the judge, reported on Tuesday that Moro was weighing Bolsonaro's offer, feeling that he could reassure citizens concerned the president-elect will not govern democratically.

"The future president must respect institutions, must respect democracy, the rule of law, the judiciary branch, the national Congress and the legislative branch", Toffoli said in remarks many took to be a rebuke of Bolsonaro. He said the Temer government may approve the deal before leaving.
