Mexico deal ‘significant win’ for U.S., Pompeo says

"The New York Times wrote a story like I already made the deal, it's nonsense, we talked about it for months and months and they wouldn't get there and we just said, hey look if you don't get there we're just going to have to charge you hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes", Trump said. He said that for many years "Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border", but that now he has "full confidence" that they will "be very cooperative" going forward.

Mr. Trump also hinted at a secret side deal as part of the negotiations and said he will consider reviving his tariff threat unless it happens.

Trump did not show the document or give any details, but a Reuters photograph of the folded document allowed reporters to read parts of it.

President Donald Trump said the U.S. will do "something" about French wine that he said is allowed into the United States under low tariffs while France imposes duties on USA wine, calling the arrangement unfair.

Democrats seized on the reports.

"I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved", Beto O'Rourke, a presidential contender, told ABC on Sunday.

It's understandable that this is sensitive in Mexico, and that even if there is a secret deal, officials would try to obscure it. Officials have denounced the idea of holding asylum seekers from Central America on Mexican soil.

"They might have accelerated the timetable but by and large the president achieved nothing except to jeopardize the most important trading relationship that the United States of America has".

Mexico's ambassador to the U.S. predicted on Sunday that trade in agricultural goods "could increase dramatically" now that tariffs aren't going ahead and if the USMCA, the trilateral trade pact with the U.S., Mexico and Canada created to replace NAFTA, is ratified - but didn't cite a specific deal with Washington on farm purchases.

When asked in Mexico City about a clause committing Mexico to purchase more products from American farms, as Trump has also suggested in recent tweets, Ebrard only said, "The migration issue is separated from trade".

The Wine Institute claims that "high tariff rates constitute the single most restrictive barrier to US wine exports", however, the French - known worldwide for their wine - do not import much American wine to begin with.

A total of 24 immigrants have died in US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) custody during the Trump administration, according to an NBC analysis. The US court system is also overloaded, with nearly 900,000 immigration cases pending.

"It's just another aspect of what we've done", replied Trump during a brief event on the White House South Lawn honoring the race auto team that won this year's Indianapolis 500 race.

In a Twitter outburst late past year, Mr Trump likewise complained about wine trade.

He then said that the New York Times will do anything to see the country "fail" and added the Enemy of the People line as his closer. In May, the Guardian obtained an early copy.

The deal continued to roil Washington. Acosta's thesis is that this act spiralled out of control.

According to Bloomberg, the U.S. is now "the biggest client for European Union wine producers", purchasing nearly a third of the bloc's exports in 2017.

One "senior White House official" is quoted as saying: "The president's insane".
