Us And Mexico Reach Agreement
However, upon his return from Europe on Friday, Trump tweeted, „I am pleased to announce that the United States of America has reached an agreement signed with Mexico.” He wrote that „the tariffs that the United States must introduce on Monday against Mexico will be suspended indefinitely.” The agreement will be reviewed within 90 days and both sides will announce further measures by then if they continue the talks. U.S. and Mexican officials continued talks as Mexico tried to reach an agreement to prevent tariffs from coming into force. However, as part of this agreement, it appears that the United States did not have Mexico accept an agreement on a „safe third country” in which asylum seekers would be asylum seekers in Mexico and would not be able to seek asylum in the United States. Instead, the government says it will extend its policy of deporting asylum seekers to Mexico, pending a decision on its cases. Mexico will welcome these people and provide them with services such as health care and education. „Everyone is very excited about the new agreement with Mexico!” Trump tweeted Saturday. „Mexico will make a lot of effort and if they do, it will be a very successful agreement for both the United States and Mexico!” the president wrote in another tweet. I would like to thank the President of Mexico, Mr. Manuel Lopez Obrador, and his Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, as well as all the many representatives of the United States and Mexico, for working so long and hard to reach our immigration agreement! U.S.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said at a separate news conference: „We couldn`t be more pleased with the agreement.” At a meeting of G20 finance ministers in Fukuoka, Japan, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he had spoken with Trump before the deal was announced and added, „We now have an agreement that we believe will solve the immigration issue.” And that was extremely important to the president. U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that a „signed agreement” had been reached between the United States and Mexico on tariffs, an agreement aimed at stemming the „migration tide.” On Saturday morning, the president posted an avalanche of cheering tweets about the deal, which ended plans to impose new tariffs on America`s major trading partners. Trump had threatened to impose 5 percent tariffs on all Mexican products, which would rise to 25 percent if the country failed to agree on new measures to curb migration from Central America. The tariffs were due to come into force on Monday, but the president tweeted late On Friday that an agreement had been reached and tariffs were „suspended indefinitely.”
