    Continental US area = 8,080,464 square kilometers.

    Brazil = 8,515,767 km^2.

    So Brazil is 5.4% larger.

    The point is actually focused on the contiguous United States, which is actually considerably smaller than Brazil — because it takes the added areas of all of Hawaii (granted, not that big) and (more significantly) 2/3 of Alaska to equal the size of the Brazilian territory, and the remaining 1/3 of Alaska

      As answers note, from a technical point of view you can argue the point. But is there a political or racial point behind the question?
