The Venezuelan government made the bizarre claim that the interview was not authorized. But that was after it had ended and Maduro had stormed off.

But Jorge Ramos explains that his team was invited to Venezuela by Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez, and they were issued journalist work permits. How else could they have ended up in the palace sitting down with Maduro?

In his weekly Facebook Watch show Jorge explains what how the interview took place and what else he saw in the three days he was in Caracas, including a moving visit to a hospital.
