Trump Announces Mystery Mexico Deal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised President Donald Trump Tuesday for threating to apply tariffs to Mexico after speaking out against the move last week.

"No, I'm going to let Mexico do the announcement at the right time", he said, while insisting that the sheet of paper he pulled from the inside of his suit pocket and waved at reporters was part of the document.

"You know, France charges us a lot for the wine and yet we charge them little for French wine", Trump said.

In May, more than 132,000 people were apprehended at the southern border, according to US Customs and Border Protection, the highest monthly number in the past 13 years.

Some drew parallels with the untimely demise of the so-called "friendship" tree planted by French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump as a token of the friendship between their two countries during Macron's state visit to the US in April previous year. That's the difference. They couldn't get it'.

United States border officers apprehended more than 132,000 people crossing from Mexico in May, the highest monthly level since 2006.

That is different from a long-standing US demand that Mexico be declared a safe place for asylum seekers, requiring them to seek refuge in Mexico if they passed through the country on the way to the United States. The duties would have increased every month until they reached 25pc in October, unless Mexico stopped illegal immigration across its border with the US. "They are truly The Enemy of the People!"

'I don't want to say and you can just figure it out yourselves.

"I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved", Beto O'Rourke, a presidential contender, told ABC on Sunday.

That is different from a long-standing United States demand that Mexico be declared a safe place for asylum seekers, requiring them to seek refuge in Mexico if they passed through the country on the way to the US.

With the tariff threat gone, at least for now, and Mexico agreeing to at least some items on the table, the good news is that a deal means no added pain for American wallets and purses.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said the measures could be needed if last week's deal between Washington and Mexico fails to reduce within 45 days the numbers of migrants entering Mexico, mainly from Central America, on their way to the US-Mexico border.

The Trump administration announced on Monday that Kenneth Cuccinelli will serve as the new acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversees the nation's legal immigration system. Officials said it was based around Mexico's commitment to deploy National Guard forces throughout the country, in particular to its southern border, in order to stem the flow of northbound migrants headed toward the US.

Trump's tweet followed a similar attack on the Times on Sunday, when the U.S. president, en route to a second day of golf at one of his courses in Virginia, accused the media outlet of "bad reporting" and "Fake News" over its coverage of migrants crossing the southern border into the US.

Critics have said there have been no new major commitments to slow the migration of Central Americans to the United States.
