USA did a 'good job' building Panama Canal

President Donald Trump welcomed the president of Panama to the White House on Monday, pointing to the United States' role in the construction of the Panama Canal at the start of his first face-to-face meeting with the Central American leader.

"In many ways, [the Trump administration is] nearly worse [than the Obama administration] because we're getting nothing, and that's terribly frustrating and, with all due respect, the attorney general has not changed at all", Chaffetz said. This time, the President hinted that he deserves a pat on the back for the "good job" he did building the Panama Canal.

"100 years ago", retorted Varela, a man with a plan, and a canal, from Panama.

USA prosecutors have said they are fulfilling a treaty obligation with Panama in requesting that Martinelli, who was arrested on June 12, continue to be held.

Chaffetz was careful in assigning blame, admitting, "I think if we went to the senior-most people, even the president himself, they would be pulling their hair out and they would hate to hear that".

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We did a very good job. "The relationship is very strong".

"It's our great honor to have President and Mrs. Varela from Panama".

The two countries "are developing new things to do and only getting stronger", Trump added.

The White House blog recounts the remarks made during press availability at the meeting.

"There is a long friendship between Panama and the United States, and we face the same challenges in the region".
