Trump still hangs tariff threat over Mexico despite deal

Trump still hangs tariff threat over Mexico despite deal”

The newspaper said Mexico and the US could overhaul asylum rules throughout the region, requiring Central Americans to first seek refuge in Mexico rather than traveling through it to reach the U.S. He said he was satisfied with the deal.

"For many years", he continued, "Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border in things we had, or didn't have, and now I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done".

"Mexico will take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border", the U.S. -Mexico Joint Declaration stated.

Trump lashed out at what he often calls the "failing New York Times" over that report, tweeting on Sunday that "if President Obama made the deals that I have made, both at the Border and for the Economy, the Corrupt Media would be hailing them as Incredible, & a National Holiday would be immediately declared". He added that the provisions in the agreement were "likely to have only a small impact on solving the root causes of Central American migration because numerous components are things Mexico is already doing".

The asylum program to be expanded is commonly known as Remain in Mexico, and now operates in the border cities of Tijuana, Mexicali and Ciudad Juarez.

And over the past week, negotiators failed to persuade Mexico to accept a "safe third country" treaty that would have given the United States the legal ability to reject asylum seekers if they had not sought refuge in Mexico first.

While a federal judge ruled to halt the policy, a US appeals court overturned the decision, allowing the policy to continue as the legal challenge is ongoing. Through June 5, 10,393 mostly Central Americans have been sent back to Mexico since the program started in January.

The president "has announced that he has cut a deal 'to greatly reduce, or eliminate, illegal immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States, ' Schumer added, quoting the president".

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. "And that was extremely important to the president", Mnuchin told Reuters in an interview on the sidelines of a G20 finance meeting in Fukuoka, Japan.

The comment came after Trump lashed out at the New York Times in a series of tweets for casting doubt on the breakthrough he claimed for his deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs and "stem the tide" of migrants on their way to the USA southern border.

Duties on Mexico would have left the United States fighting trade wars with two of its three largest trading partners, and would further unnerve financial markets already on edge about tariffs and a global economic slowdown.

The United States slapped tariffs of up to 25 per cent on $200 billion U.S. in Chinese imports last month, prompting Beijing to levy its own tariffs on $60 billion in American goods.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a sharply worded statement Saturday saying Trump had "undermined America's preeminent leadership role in the world" by threatening tariffs against Mexico.

She said the US wants to see the number of migrants crossing the border return to levels seen in 2018.

U.S. President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping are due to meet in Osaka for the G20 summit on June 28-29.

In addition, the Migrant Protection Protocols already face legal challenges by immigrant rights groups who say they violate the migrants' right to lawyers. "I don't think it's a breakdown in trust or good or bad faith. We should not be confronting them every other day".

"The damage of Trump's reckless trade policies and tariffs has already been done", O'Rourke said.
