Trump Again Threatens Tariffs on Mexico After Calling Off Tariff Plan Last Week.

President Trump tweeted this morning that if Mexican lawmakers fail to sign an immigration and security deal, tariffs on the country will be reinstated. Trump added, however, that he does not expect a problem with the vote in Mexico. This comes days after Mexico and the U.S. announced an agreement on immigration, of which few details were provided. Last month, Trump threatened five percent tariffs on Mexican goods, which would have increased every month until they reached 25 percent in October, unless Mexico stopped illegal immigration across its border with Mexico. In another tweet, Trump explained that the U.S. and Mexico have a "fully signed and documented" part of the immigration deal, and the plan "will be revealed in the not too distant future."
