(CNN)President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will "temporarily hold off" designating Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations as he said he would last week.

"All necessary work has been completed to declare Mexican Cartels terrorist organizations. Statutorily we are ready to do so," the President tweeted.

But Trump said he would hold off the designation at the request of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who he called "a man who I like and respect, and has worked so well with us."

Marcelo Ebrard, the country's foreign minister, thanked Trump via his Twitter account for postponing the designation. CNN has reached out to López Obrador's office for comment.

1. Trump needs a favor first. If they can get him dirt on Biden they won't be named terrorists.

4. "Hugs not Bullets"

That is the approach being followed by the Mexican President, and i believe will be more effective in the long run than approaching violence with violence.
