Vice President Mike Pence praised President Donald Trump and compared him to former president Theodore Roosevelt, according to The Washington Post.

The vice president made the comments Thursday during a visit to the Panama Canal, the Post reported.

"In President Donald Trump, I think the United States once again has a president whose vision, energy and can-do spirit is reminiscent of President Teddy Roosevelt," Pence said in the speech, referring to Roosevelt, who was president from 1901 to 1909 and oversaw the construction of the canal.

"Then, as now, we have a builder of boundless optimism, who seeks to usher in a new era of shared prosperity all across this new world. Then, as now, we have a leader who sees things not just as they are, but for what they could be. And then, as now, we have a president who understands, in his words, 'a nation is only living as long as it is striving,'" Pence said, according to The Post.

"Under President Trump, the United States will break new ground and break new records… we'll recapture the spirit and rekindle the vision of our forebears in partnership with the free nations and free people across this hemisphere," Pence added.

"Just as President Roosevelt exhorted his fellow Americans to 'dare to be great,' President Donald Trump has dared our nation to 'make America great again,' and we'll do it with all of our friends in the world," Pence said in the speech, according to The Post.

"We will once again awe the world with all that we accomplish together," Pence said in the speech, The Post reported.

On Friday, Pence tweeted that he was back from his Latin American trip and on his way to join Trump at Camp David.
