Trump says tariff threat remains if Mexico falls short on pledges

Trump says US, Mexico reach agreement to prevent tariffs

Trump says US, Mexico reach agreement to prevent tariffs

The U.S. -Mexico Joint Declaration released this Friday by the State Department also mentioned no such information, which Trump said that the agricultural deal was included in.

Lamy said it was understandable that Mexico had sought to extricate itself from the tariff bind, but noted it ran the risk of facing more threats in future. Trump said on Thursday he would decide later this month whether to hit Beijing with tariffs on an additional list of $300 billion in Chinese goods. Lamy has criticized Trump's use of tariffs in the past.

Trump said that if his predecessor, Barack Obama, made the deal he made with Mexico, the media would declare a "National Holiday" in his honor.

"Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan quizzed Ms. Barcena on whether there was "any kind of agreement by your government to buy agricultural products", an apparent reference to Mr. Trump's tweet Saturday that "Mexico has agreed to immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural product".

The U.S. also hailed Mexico's agreement to embrace the expansion of a program implemented earlier this year under which some asylum-seekers are returned to Mexico as they wait out their cases.

The "biggest message" from President Donald Trump's tariff strategy toward Mexico was actually directed toward China, Sen.

Lopez Obrador said he was reluctantly prepared to slap retaliatory tariffs on USA goods if negotiators in Washington had failed to strike a deal.

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.

CBS posted an article headlined, "Mexican ambassador contradicts Trump claim of new agriculture deal", but changed it to "Mexican ambassador won't say whether Mexico agreed to new agricultural deal" after she pushed back.

"There's no doubt this leaves a Damocles sword hanging over Lopez Obrador's head", he said, invoking a metaphor that describes an ever-present peril.

Mexico has agreed, it said, to "unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration", including the deployment of the Mexican National Guard throughout the country, especially on its southern border with Guatemala.

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.

"My reaction is it seems that hostage-taking works", Pascal Lamy, a former director-general of the WTO, told Reuters, saying Trump's actions went against the spirit of diplomacy.
