President Donald Trump on Saturday, June 8, said that Mexico had agreed to buy “large quantities of agricultural product from our great patriot farmers.”
President Trump tweeted: “Mexico has agreed to immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural product from our great patriot farmers.”
While the declaration did not mention the exact number of National Guard or the purchase of more agricultural product we await more details in the coming days.
President Trump tweeted on Saturday that Mexico will send 6,000 troops to its southern border, saying that currently “there are few!”
President Trump tweeted: “Brandon Judd, National Border Patrol Council: “That’s going to be a huge deal because Mexico will be using their strong Immigration Laws – A game changer. People no longer will be released into the U.S.” Also, 6000 Mexican Troops at their Southern Border. Currently there are few!”
After the agreement was announced on June 7, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), tweeted, “This is an historic night!”
He tweeted: “This is an historic night! @realDonaldTrump has announced that he has cut a deal to “greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.” Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future.”
President Donald Trump’s deal to avert his threatened tariffs on Mexico includes solutions to swiftly stem the surge of Central American migrants flowing over America’s southern border.
It delivers enough for president Trump to claim a political win.
The decision—announced by tweet late Friday—ended a showdown that business leaders warned would have disastrous economic consequences for both the United States and one of its largest trading partners, driving up consumer prices and driving a wedge between the two allies.
It gives president Trump the ability to claim victory on a central campaign promise as he prepares to formally launch his 2020 campaign.
