When He was sworn into presidency he placed all of his leftists allies at higher positions so there was a small chance that he gets overthrown or disliked by people with valued opinions. He had appointed a secret police to take out any opponent that went against him. When he was in presidency Chavez sold oil to Cuba and resisted efforts to stop narcotic trafficking in Columbia, and subsequently strained relations with the United States.

Poem - By Barney
But he slapped Venezuela with a silent left hand,
Speaking of leftists he placed them as political leaders,
He tried to increase the amount of Venezuelan readers,
He was supposedly a good man,
But when he can't get people to shut up his secret police can.
