President Trump recently doubled down on his criticism of Democrat’s and their lack of action on the border crisis. On Twitter Tuesday, the president said, “Mexico is doing more for the U.S. and the border than Democrats in Congress!” This comes as House Democrats work to stop border wall construction.
The U.S. secured an agreement with Mexico on Friday, averting tariffs in exchange for increased border security. President Trump spoke Tuesday about a part of that deal, which still needs to be approved by Mexico’s legislature.
“Without the tariffs, we would have had nothing….we had nothing two week ago,” he stated.
The President tweeted Monday, saying tariffs will be reinstated if Mexico’s legislature doesn’t vote to approve the deal.
….We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, Tariffs will be reinstated!
