This reporter is wrong. The Venezuelan government is completely corrupted. Merchants in Venezuela have to pay a "kick-back" to the government and the kick-back cannot be reflected on the selling price. For example: Toilet paper arrives in Venezuela at 1.00 and the corrupted politicians sell it to the merchants at 1.20 but the merchant is forced to sell the toilet paper at 1.05 and forced to not recuperate the kick-back paid to the corrupted politicians. When the merchant tries to recuperate their actual cost and add a decent profit, let's say, 1.25 the merchant gets in trouble and the government takes over the store and throws the owner of the store in prison.
Obviously the reporter is also corrupted and lying on behalf of the Venezuelan government.
Shame on the reporter for trying to confuse the viewer of this video.
How do I know? Because our foundation sent humanitarian food to Venezuela and the corrupted government stole the containers and gave it to the armed forces, instead of the intended recipients (school children).
