Mexico’s Vicente Fox terms Maduro an apprentice dictator

The former Mexican president questioned the skills of the Venezuelan president


VENEZUELA NEWS – Former Mexican President Vicente Fox has described Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro as “an apprentice dictator,” and claimed he took power due to “a vulgar imposition” by his predecessor, Hugo Chávez.

In an interview, Fox told news agency EFE that Chávez was “liable for destroying a nation, an economy, and the dreams and hopes of millions of Venezuelans.” “Mr. Maduro is an apprentice dictator. He is weak in mind, in ideas, and in skills -the product of a vulgar imposition that continues the destructive task.”
