Trump Threatens Mexico Tariffs Are Still On The Table While Whining About NYT Report

President Donald Trump warned on Sunday that his “very profitable” proposed tariffs on Mexican imports are still on the table if there isn’t “great cooperation” between Mexico and the U.S.

Trump was railing against the “Failing” New York Times, which reported on Saturday that most of the terms of his border agreement with Mexico had been decided months before his tariff threat.




Trump’s tariff threat was panned by both Democrats and Republicans alike, and the GOP threatened to nullify Trump’s national emergency declaration if he went through with the tariffs.

Mexico agreed to boost security at its border with Guatemala and keep asylum seekers waiting in Mexico while their cases are reviewed.

He was as entertaining as George Bush's malapropisms. I wonder how everything is down at the Daisy Hill trailer park? That was one funny feature each week, I loved it. Arrest my case!

10. He still doesn't get it.

Although I'm certain he's been told dozens of times, by dozens of people, he still doesn't understand what a tariff is, or how it works. He actually thinks the other countries are paying the tariffs. He is the very definition of a 'dumb shit'!

4. Profitable? Hmm. Would you be surprised if mnuchin and trump are taking a cut?

Tariffs are a tax on imports. They're typically charged as a percentage of the transaction price that a buyer pays a foreign seller. In the United States, tariffs — also called duties or levies — are collected by Customs and Border Protection agents at 328 ports of entry across the country. Proceeds go to the Treasury, as far as we know.
