President Trump says tariffs on Mexican imports are 'indefinitely suspended' after reaching deal


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!"
Trump had taken a tough position toward Mexico earlier in the day, tweeting, "If we are unable to make the deal, Mexico will begin paying Tariffs at the 5% level on Monday!" Mexico was able to avoid these tariffs on farm and agricultural products, according to Trump's announcement.
And there it is. Just as he said, his tariff threats were so great that they forced Mexico to the negotiation table over illegal immigrants at the border.
Here’s what el Presidente Trumpo just tweeted:

Wow.
The devil of course, is in the details. I’d really like to see what he got as concessions from Mexico – and did he push them to pay for the wall or what??!?!
