Trump Touts Trade Deal with Mexico, Renews Tariff Threats Against China

HeadlineJun 11, 2019

As President Trump continued to tout his immigration deal with Mexico Monday, the Mexican foreign minister refuted Trump’s Twitter claim of a yet-to-be-revealed agreement between the two countries. Marcelo Ebrard said the two parties agreed to re-evaluate the migration situation in the coming months to determine whether further action is needed.

Meanwhile, Trump threatened on Monday to impose a further 25% tariff on $300 billion of Chinese goods if Chinese President Xi Jinping fails to appear at the G20 summit in Japan later this month.
