President Jimmy Carter praises Hugo Chavez in statement on Venezuelan president’s death


Former President Jimmy Carter releasing a statement about Hugo Chavez, a statement many Americans probably won’t agree with!

President Carter saying, in part:

“President Chavez will be remembered for his bold assertion of autonomy and independence for Latin American governments and for his formidable communication skills and personal connection with supporters in his country and abroad to whom he gave hope and empowerment.”

Really? Should a former U.S. President be praising a foreign leader who made his disdain for America very clear? Post your thoughts on President Carter’s statement below!
