I even heard Pavarotti sang a great song at the dedication of the canal. Frederick Douglas was also in attendance, fresh off of his triumph at the Battle of Bowling Green.

Apparently, preventing yellow fever and malaria is more complicated than I thought.  Who knew.

Sure, we built the canal.  But since then we've installed and deposed how many dictators?

Technically, the US might not have put Noriega in power.  But it'd be hard to claim profits from cocaine going up American's noses didn't help keep him there.

Andrew Jackson could have prevented the sale back to Panama.

Maybe Trump was thinking about "Panama" by Van Halen.

The US actually helped liberate Panama from Colombia, so they could get and build the canal. I'm not surprised if they did help put him in power.

To be fair, it is probably new to him since he just learned about it before his trip.
 
2017-06-19 03:51:15 PM  
Fark you, Donald.
 
2017-06-19 03:52:00 PM  
Giving Trump the benefit of the doubt here, it's possible he was referring to the latest project to widen the Panama Canal.

Which was finished in 2016.

Without US financing.

Without US labor.

Farking idiot..

Jake Havechek: Andrew Jackson could have prevented the sale back to Panama.


Honestly I am shocked that he didn't claim that America got schlonged on the sale and didn't ask them to give it back to us plus the back rent they now owe because it would never have been sold if he wasn't president.

Unconventional Wisdom: To be fair, it is probably new to him since he just learned about it before his trip.


He probably thinks it's there to stop the Colombians moving north.
 
2017-06-19 03:52:25 PM  
Once again, he's like a kid giving a book report on a book he didn't read. He just back-covered it, and is winging it in front of the class.
 
2017-06-19 03:52:47 PM  
Many people of the best are speaking highly of the Panama Canal.  It's starting to get a lot of attention.

Good Job America.

Come on now, this is Trump we're talking about. At least he didn't shiat himself or tell Varela's wife she was a 6 at best. Baby steps, people...baby steps...
 
2017-06-19 03:55:17 PM  
I'm happily surprised that he didn't respond with "Yeah, we could never get something like this done once the broads got the vote".

If he ever visits he's going to ask for a ride, you know where the guy sings while pushing the boat along with a pole.
 
2017-06-19 03:55:52 PM  
He tries SO hard to find that one thing he can relate to when he meets people.

Japan: "Hey, how about that WWII, huh?"
Germany: "I know a bit about pee videos. Tremendous work."
Italy: "I ate at an Olive Garden once. Fantastic bread sticks, don't you agree?"
 
2017-06-19 03:56:09 PM  
Trumps base think trump built it. Following through on those campaign promises

At this point, I'd rather have a kindergartner as president. What a turd.  I'm glad the President of Panama called him out.

So, what everyone is saying here is that we DIDN'T build the Panama Canal?

Andrew Jackson would have built it more bigly. Weak leadership making less than excellent canals. SAD
