Posted on 06/07/2019 6:28:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
US President Donald Trump announced via Twitter late Friday that a signed agreement has been reached with Mexico, and that the tariffs scheduled to go into effect on Monday have been suspended.
Just last week, Trump announced that a five percent tariff on all goods coming from Mexico would go into effect on June 10, and would gradually increase up to 25 percent until the illegal immigration problem was resolved.
The announcement launched a flurry of talks between officials from both countries, with reports that Mexico was willing to make some concessions.
Late 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.
Trump via Twitter said that Mexico, 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.
Trump said that details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department.

Wow. Amazing deal making ability.
Good. We’ll have to see what kind of deal Trump got from Mexico.
Free avocados for everyone. Lyin Ted can stop wetting himself.
Now Romney, Cruz, and the rest of the RINOS can stop crying.
The capitulation caucus can fret about something else now.
Talking points for CNN, MSNBC et all:
This is not the way this has been done in the past. This amounts to an abuse of power for Trump to bully our Mexican friends into submission. He has gone rogue and will start a war with Mexico. He must be brought back into line with the way things are done in our democracy. This is not who we are.
I don’t trust Mexico.
Now Romney, Cruz, and the rest of the RINOS can stop crying
In addition to getting some action (Ill believe it when I see it) from Mexico, this tariff ultimatum also served to uncover the weak sisters in the Republican caucus. Ill remember them.
Yes, this is good news but how well can Mexico uphold their part of the bargain? They could be like China, make promises and break them. But it’s something but I want to see more.
I smell a rat. This was dumped on Friday.
Yep, they show their fickle selves at every turn.
Read it and weep
OK, fine.... How many miles of the wall were completed today ?
Trump belongs in prison with all the other people who bet against him and came out smelling bad.
Well, whats the measure of success? What has to happen to keep the tariffs off? Do we have monitors at the border?
If this is truly a good deal maybe this is the turning point that helps bring these spineless GOP’s into the MAGA camp and we can start to see some seriously good s&*t happening again. Sure would be nice to see congress critters in his own party get behind him for once.
How exciting! We got a signature on a piece of paper. Anybody care to take a bet on how many illegals will come across the border in the next 4 or 5 days? I doubt if it even slows down
Trump is president of the US and is looking out for the interests of the US
