Venezuela Supermarket Sells Ketchup

A startling new video posted to social media apparently shows a Venezuela supermarket with endless aisles stocked with nothing but Heinz Ketchup as the nation experiences a socialism-sponsored food shortage.

The video shows a couple walking through a supermarket, revealing aisle after aisle sparingly stocked with ketchup. Occasionally, between rows and rows of ketchup bottles, other food items can be spotted in the one minute video.

There also appear to be a few bottles of salad dressing, barbecue sauce, and water available for purchase.

Rows Of Tomato Ketchup In Venezuelan Supermarket

Food shortages have got so bad in Venezuela that shops are stocking shelves with nothing but tomato ketchup 😳🍅

Posted by UNILAD on Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Last month the United States attempted to send more aid shipments including food and medical supplies to Venezuela, only to have illegitimate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro stop the shipments at the border. As the socialist nation continues to collapse, it has been unwilling to accept most foreign assistance.

American officials expressed optimism that interim President Juan Guaidó would be able to facilitate the aid shipments.

Reuters reported:

The U.S. officials said trucks carrying the aid, including high-protein foods, would arrive in Cucuta this week at the request of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who last month declared himself to be the South American nation’s interim president.

Opposition lawmaker Miguel Pizarro told reporters in Caracas on Tuesday that Guaido’s team would talk about how the aid would move once it was in place. Shipments were also coming from Venezuelan companies abroad, Colombia, Canada and Germany.

A senior U.S. administration official said it was up to Guaido to decide when and how to move the supplies into the country. “We will seek to help him to do so by whatever means possible,” the official said.

While meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro yesterday, President Donald J. Trump thanked him for standing with the United States against the Maduro regime, and for allowing the United States to use Brazil as a staging area for relief shipments.

President Bolsonaro viewed the cooperation as the possible foundation of a new alliance between the two largest capitalist nations in the Western hemisphere, and President Trump discussed the possibility of allowing the South American nation to join NATO. The two presidents also celebrated what President Trump calls the “twilight hour” of socialism.
