Trump meets with Panamanian President

President Trump is meeting with the President of Panama at the White House Monday, to discuss crime, immigration, and drug trafficking.

President Juan Carlos Varela met Trump for the first time, and is expected to continue to foster an economic relationship with the United States amidst a turbulent political atmosphere in South America.

Venezuela, just south of Panama, will be a key topic of their discussions as it struggles with anti government protests borne of corruption, hyper-inflation, and food and medical shortages.

Also, a meeting with the President of Panama can’t be concluded without an update on the canal.
