In the latest episode of Donald Trumps Awkward Handshakes, Trump sat down with Juan Carlos Varela, Panamas president, today at the White House. While the two leaders posed for photos and began to shake hands, Trump made sure to remind Varela just how well the Panama Canal has been working. (Brief history lesson: The Panama Canal was completed in 1914.) I think we did a good job building it, Trump said. 100 years ago, retorted Varela, a man with a plan, and a canal, from Panama.
Cant decide where this one ranks on the scale of dumb Trump shakes. Somewhere between Trump gripping Shinzo Abes hand for eternity and Justin Trudeau staring blankly at Trumps outstretched palm.
