Trump Touts Building of Panama Canal During Photo Op with Panamanian President

President Trump on Monday spoke about the United States’ role in building the Panama Canal, while Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela pointed out that over a one hundred years had passed since.

“The Panama Canal is doing quite well,” Trump said while sitting with Varela during a photo op. “I think we did a good job building it, right?”

“Yeah. A hundred years ago,” Varela replied.

“We did a very good job,” Trump continued, interrupting Varela. “But things are going well in Panama.”
