The president of Brazil said he plans to wait “a bit longer” to recognize a winner of the U.S. presidential election.

On Sunday, Jair Bolsonaro told reporters he thinks it’s wise to allow President Trump’s legal arguments to go through in court before congratulating a winner.

He also said there is evidence of widespread voting fraud, though he added he’s not sure whether it was enough to sway the election.

“It is one of those countries that is the ‘mother of democracy,’” Bolsonaro stated. “Now, the media does not report on this but I have my sources of information. It’s no use talking to you, they won’t disclose it, but there was a lot of fraud there.”

He also criticized his own country’s voting system by saying it would be much more secure if it switched back to paper ballots.
