Donald Trump Renews Threat Against French Wine

Donald Trump Renews Threat Against French Wine”

Martha Barcena Coqui, Mexico's Ambassador to the US did not say whether Mexico agreed to "immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural products" made in America, as US President Trump claimed on Saturday.

Trump said on Monday afternoon Mexico would soon announce an "undisclosed portion" of the deal that would have to be taken up by the Mexican Congress.

"If for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, Tariffs will be reinstated!" he tweeted.

Trump resumed his pressure on Mexico in a series of tweets, three days after granting a reprieve from tariffs that could have spelled disaster for the country's economy - his strategy to get the Mexican government to do more to stop the surge of Central Americans arriving at the United States border.

Since "Remain in Mexico" was first implemented in December 2018, USA authorities have returned more than 10,000 migrants to Mexico, according to the Mexican government.

The deal included a commitment from Mexico, for instance, to deploy its new National Guard to the country's southern border with Guatemala.

Over the weekend, Trump also claimed that Mexico agreed to buy more agricultural products from the US.

President Donald Trump tweeted about the agreement late last week.

European Union import duties on wine are higher than United States tariffs on European wines, including those from France, but EU consumers buy less of the American product.

During an interview with Fox and Friends Monday morning, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway argued Democrats are doing less than Mexican officials to take action.

Mnuchin concluded that Trump reserves the right to impose tariffs on Mexico if bilateral relations between the two countries deteriorate in the future.

When Trump announced the deal Friday night, Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer joked, "This is an historic night!"

Mexico and the United States agreed to keep talking about further possible measures to address the crisis and would make announcements on the matter after 90 days.

Under the deal, the USA will expand the "Remain in Mexico" policy, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocol, under which asylum seekers are required to stay in Mexico while U.S. immigration authorities review their applications.

'Additionally, and for many years, 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, ' he continued in the thread.

Last month, he lifted tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and Mexico as a precursor to trying to pass his new U.S. The agency says it is no longer able to hold so many migrants, let alone process them quickly and efficiently. She told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the countries' "joint declaration of principles ... gives us the base for the road map that we have to follow in the incoming months on immigration and cooperation on asylum issues and development in Central America". That demand was put on the table again by United States negotiators last week, but was not accepted by Mexico.
