US President Donald Trump, who threatened that he would enact an escalating tariff on all Mexican goods, said that tariffs are “indefinitely suspended.”
Late night Friday, Trump tweeted, “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. 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!”
Mexican government officials are now planning to deploy 6,000 Mexican National Guard troops to the Southern border, which was confirmed by Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexican President, at a press-conference Friday. Some Twitter users have negatively reacted to Trump’s post, saying that he was the one who created the mess, and suggested that the number of asylum seekers wouldn’t change. However, many said that the signed agreement is “a step in a right direction.”
“President Trump is the best President we have had since Reagan maybe even Lincoln. If American switched off their TV’s & start thinking for themselves, Trump would have an 80% approval rating. Too many people have reality defined by fake media. Open your own eyes, ears & think!” read a reply by one of the users.
