Trump predicts smooth sailing for Mexico trade deal but threatens tariffs if pact falls through

President Trump is defending his deal with Mexico after calling off threats of tariffs in exchange for more assistance from the country in keeping migrants from crossing the southern border into the United States. But the president is not backing down from his initial threat, warning that should the deal not receive support in a vote from Mexican leadership, he'll go right back to tariffs.

Mr. Trump tweeted early Monday morning the U.S. had "fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico." The president teased further details of the deal would be "revealed in the not too distant future" pending a vote by Mexico's legislative body.




"We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, Tariffs will be reinstated!" he added. His comments come after days of lengthy negotiations between Mexican and U.S. trade negotiators yielded a deal to stop the tariffs on Mexican goods from going into effect on Monday.

Meanwhile, Mexico has agreed to accelerate its national guard presence on the southern border starting Monday. It's also agreed to expand a program requiring asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their claims are being processed. The administration claims those stipulations are all new, but former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had announced that asylum plan last December.

3. This is just another phony pr campaign to promote himself as a deal maker, and winner,

Using lies and threats if they don't play along with his phony claims . He's again lying through his teeth now because the GOP told him no to Mexican tariffs, so he's refusing to allow that to be used instead painting himself as the victor when he was the loser, again. This is what an illegitimate president , and a corrupt serial liar looks like in the White House .
