    There is no deal with Mexico.

    Owing to pressure from repubs in the Senate, who do not like tariffs, Trump claims a secret deal with Mexico so tariff threat worked.

    This lie was about on par with "Mexico is going to pay for the wall"?




    Trump backs down after threatening Mexico tariffs but touts a “secret” deal to avert a crisis. A Mexico official exposes Trump’s bluff, declaring "no secret deal" was ever made. Ari Melber examines Trump’s history of creating a fake crisis and then falsely claiming to solve them.

    For not having a "secret deal", Mexico sure is getting things done all of a sudden.

    An immigration official at the site who was not authorized to speak publicly said the migrants would initially be taken to an immigration detention center in Tapachula. It appeared 600 to 800 migrants were being transported.

    Mexico’s effort to curtail the constant flow of Central American migrants from its southern border with Guatemala was its latest response to threats from President Trump, who has promised to impose high tariffs on America’s southern neighbor if it fails to put an end to illegal immigration. …

    Frustrated by the lack of progress on a signature issue from his 2016 election campaign, Trump unexpectedly told Mexico last week to take a harder line on curbing illegal immigration or face five percent tariffs on all its exports to the United States, rising to as much as 25 percent later in the year.

    Trump says tariffs on Mexico will be imposed MONDAY after a breakdown in talks | Daily Mail Online
    Faced with Trump’s threat to impose steadily rising tariffs on goods imported from Mexico beginning Monday, Mexican officials have pledged to deploy up to 6,000 national guard troops to the area of the country’s border with Guatemala, a show of force they say will immediately reduce the number of Central Americans heading north toward the U.S. border.

    The plan, a sweeping overhaul of asylum rules across the region, would require Central American migrants to seek refuge in the first country they enter after leaving their homeland, the two officials said. For Guatemalans, that would be Mexico. For migrants from Honduras and El Salvador, that would be Guatemala, whose government held talks last week with acting Homeland Security secretary Kevin McAleenan.

    Mexican military deployed throughout the country as part of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s vow to do more to apprehend migrants headed to the United States, have officially begun targeting foreigners who have hitched rides aboard a freight train known as “The Beast” to get to the U.S.-Mexico border, local media reported Sunday.

    Mexican National Guard held up the “La Bestia” train in an unpopulated area near Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, a city north of the Mexico-Guatemala border, where migrants have been crossing into the country.

    The operation marked the first of its kind since López Obrador and President Trump reached a deal late Friday, in which the U.S. would hold off on tariffs against Mexican imports if the government did more to prevent people from traveling through the country.

    It is good that Trump got a deal done with Mexico however the fat man's approach with China will likely lead to a depression. His idiocy is holding the economy back.

    Bet you still believe the Russian collusion story?

    Secret deal or today's lie, there seems to be activity even if there is all kinds of consequences. But that is what Trump supporters wanted, a bull in a china shop mentality.

    Re: There is no deal with Mexico.

    When I read about Trump thumping his chest and threatening tariffs and Mexico almost instantaneously capitulating, I smelled a scam on the American people.

    Here is a scene from The Big Bang Theory that captures the essence of what I suspected. In this scene, Mexico is played by Leonard, Penny's boyfriend. Trump is played by Penny's dad, and America is just played.

    I'm surprised by how many people still read the NY Times. What would be the reason?


    And when served by MSNBC?


    That's a meal I would have a taster test before consuming.....

    Leave to Liberals to host another sky is falling, Trump is a liar, and it will never happen report. You have to wonder, are Liberals learning impaired? I mean after CNN and MSNBC viewership has tanked because of fake news like this and the fact that every claim that has been made for over 3 years has come to be fake news, after so much egg on your face you continue down the same path?

    Perfect Example: Take this post.

    We are just going to ignore the fact that Mexico felt the need to rush its high-level delegation to D.C. and plunge into marathon talks with Vice President Pence and other U.S. negotiators to stop the tariffs.

    We are just going to ignore the fact that two new and extremely important commitments: Mexico’s agreement to hit specific, measurable goals and put serious manpower to the task.

    We are just going to ignore the fact that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador commented on what the new deal was and his guarantee to take control of illegal immigration a national security priority for his country dedicating 6000 troops to the task.

    We are just going to ignore the fact that Mexico has now agreed to hold refugees in their country while awaiting legal status in the US which was not a consideration in the original request.

    This is same behavior that elected Trump to office. The desperate lying and fake claims over and over and over and over.
