President’s threats to exit trade accord have unnerved US industry and members of his own Republican party

President Donald Trump said on Monday he may make Mexico halting the flow of undocumented migrants into the United States a condition for a renegotiated trade deal.

“Mexico, whose laws on immigration are very tough, must stop people from going through Mexico and into the US We may make this a new condition of our new NAFTA Agreement. Our Country cannot accept what is happening! Also, we must get Wall funding fast,” he wrote on Twitter.

The social media announcement came more than a week after the US leader said talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada were “coming along great,” although he said there was no deadline for a new deal to be completed.

Mr Trump’s threats to exit NAFTA have unnerved US industry and members of his own Republican party, who say the United States has benefited from the pact.

3. Threaten trade, disrupt markets, change your mind, rinse and repeat

Trump is utterly clueless on how to lead. He refuses any advice and constructive criticism from career professionals. Bannon's wish to deconstruct the administrative state and kill government from within is proceeding quite well.

Trump is an idiot and a lunatic.

Mexico dismisses Trump threat to tie NAFTA to migration policy

Reuters Staff
1 MIN READ

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Monday that Mexico decides its immigration policy in a sovereign manner, and that it would be “unacceptable” to condition the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement to the issue.

Videgaray’s comments on Twitter came after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to make immigration control a condition of a new NAFTA deal, saying Mexico must stop illegal immigrants from getting into the United States.
