Venezuela is in turmoil after President Trump announced he recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation’s president, rather than socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

The capital city of Caracas was flooded Wednesday with hundreds of thousands of people protesting Maduro’s corruption and failing socialist policies.

Footage from social media shows protesters taking to the streets as they face starvation and hyperinflation.

Clashes between the military and protesters erupted soon after Guaido pronounced himself Venezuela’s interim president.

“I swear to assume all the powers of the presidency to secure an end to the usurpation,” 35-year old Guaido told a cheering crowd.

Four people are reported to have been killed as a result of Maduro’s forces’ use of live ammunition.

But other footage shows a few of Maduro’s forces joining with protesters in some areas.

Many people have gone into hiding while the clashes outside raged on.

Maduro has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela, however Guaido has instructed the diplomats to remain in the country.

“Before the people and nations of the world, and as constitutional president…..I’ve decided to break diplomatic and political relations with the imperialist U.S. government,” Maduro told a crowd of supporters.
