House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted US President Donald Trump for his deal with Mexico signed Friday in order to avoid tariffs Trump promised to impose on the country.
“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south,” said Pelosi. “Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy,” she continued.
Trump threatened to impose tariffs on Mexican goods, however, late Friday night Mexico and the US signed a joint declaration, which states that Mexico should take “unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration, to include the deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.”
Pelosi has also claimed that Congress “will continue to hold the Trump Administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border. President Trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values.”
Trump tweeted Saturday that “Nervous Nancy Pelosi & the Democrat House are getting nothing done,” he tweeted. “Perhaps they could lead the way with the USMCA, the spectacular & very popular new Trade Deal that replaces NAFTA, the worst Trade Deal in the history of the U.S.A. Great for our Farmers, Manufacturers & Unions!”
