LOS ANGELES – Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez is dead at the age of 58. He reportedly died Tuesday from cancer. He has never revealed what type of cancer he had.

Flamboyant, arrogant, outspoken, opinionated and overbearing Chavez had during his 14 year run as Venezuela’s President something to say about everything and everyone.
One country in particular was not on his list of favorite places: The United States Of America.
During the United Nations gathering in September 2006 he called then US President George W. Bush ‘the devil who thinks he owns the world’.
“Yesterday the devil was here for a visit,” Chavez said. “Today the table still smell like sulfur”.
Chavez called other world leaders who were allies of Bush ‘fascists’. In Santiago, Chili, in 2007, former Spanish Premier José María Aznar was told during a conference that he was a ‘fascist’.
But more than just not liking people, Hugo Chavez was borderline obsessed with ‘hating’ the United States.
He once told a TV audience: “Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century.”
When he was diagnosed with cancer, Chavez blamed the United States for him and people in other Latin American countries having cancer.
Interestingly enough, it’s America that has given Hugo Chavez one of his biggest money making ventures to date allowing Venezuela to benefit from healthcare, food, clothing, education and more.
There are presently 14,000 Citgo gas stations in operation in the United States. All of them are a subsidiary of Venezuela State Owned Oil company.
Buying gasoline from a Citgo gas station puts money in Venezuela’s pockets.
