>> This chaotic scene from the streets of Venezuela, this week. And now, General Motors is caught up in the crisis. GM says Venezuelan authorities have seized the company's only plant in the country, a move GM calls illegal. The seizure comes as thousands of protestors take the streets, some violently clashing with police, furious with Venezuela's leftist government.
Led by President Nicolas Maduro, who is grappling with an economic crisis that seems to have no end in sight. A crisis that Maduro often blames on US policies and corporations. No reason was given for the unexpected seizure that GM says could irreparably damage the company and its nearly 3,000 employees there.
Even though it hasn't made a car in Venezuela since 2015, as the country suffers from shortages. Venezuela has seized factories in the past, calling them temporary takeovers. In 2014, US cleaning supplier Clorox faced a similar fate that forced the company out of the country.
