Trump Announces Deal With Mexico To Avoid Tariffs

Who’s hit worse, the #Resistance or the #NeverTrumpers? I’ve seen more #NeverTrumpers losing their minds on Twitter, in comments, and on their blogs than #Resistance over the threat of tariffs. Maybe you’ve seen the other way. They just don’t get that Trump does things differently, but, they are all infused with TDS

US makes deal with Mexico on tariffs, immigration, Trump announces

The U.S. has reached an agreement with Mexico that heads off the start of tariffs on Monday.

The deal, announced by President Trump via tweet on Friday night, is said to include plans to return migrants seeking asylum to Mexico, where they will remain until their claims can be processed.

“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended,” he said. “Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to….stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border. This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!”

Mexico promises to deploy its National Guard throughout Mexico, particularly at the border, increase actions to dismantle human trafficking operations to smuggle individuals across the border, and take extra steps to coordinate with the American government to share information and “better protect and secure our common border,” according to a statement from the State Department.

Trump thinks of things along a business related line, not a typical diplomacy related line, which can take forever to get done. He is rather the bull in the china shop. It doesn’t always work, but, neither does diplomacy.

Some Democrats responded with ire even in the wake of the new deal. One was 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, who tweeted: “The damage of Trump’s reckless trade policies and tariffs has already been done. What we see is yet another example of him trying to be both the arsonist who created this problem in the first place and the firefighter who wants credit for addressing it.”

Poor Beto, still trying to get noticed. Regardless, if Mexico sticks to the agreement, you can bet Trump will try and hook them up on some deal, offering the carrot.

PS: The minute I flipped over to Twitter after posting this, I ran across multiple #NeverTrumpers finding a way to make this negative. Sigh.

    “And at times, leaders must lead” as Elwood so eloquently and sarcastically typed in the post titled: “NY Times Warmist Upset That Democratic Party Is Trying To Downplay ‘Climate Change’ Or Something” about Trump. Thank you President Trump for leading America into prosperity and more freedom with fewer regulations. Thank you for leading Mexico to do the right thing regarding Guatemala also. Now let’s get the remnants of the commies out of the “agencies” and Deep State and turn the law making back to the people’s elected representatives and not a nameless Democrat Communist operative in the DoJ, CIA, FBI, IRS etc.
