"When will the Failing New York Times admit that their front page story on the the [sic] new Mexico deal at the Border is a FRAUD and nothing more than a badly reported "hit job" on me, something that has been going on since the first day I announced for the presidency!
Trump has long criticized Mexico for not doing enough to cut the number of people arriving at the southern US border and ahead of Friday's announcement had vowed to impose 5% tariffs, with future escalations, unless the Mexican government took more action to curb the surge of migrants. In return, Trump said that he would not go ahead with a threat to impose escalating tariffs on all Mexican goods entering the US.
"This full-blow effort under the Migration Protocols is a big deal", he added, referring to the "Remain in Mexico" policy.
It included a commitment from Mexico, for instance, to deploy its new National Guard to the country's southern border with Guatemala.
Mexico and the United States agreed to keep talking about further possible measures to address the crisis and would make announcements on the matter after 90 days.
But as of Sunday night, US -bound asylum seekers were not yet being sent back to additional Mexican border towns, three Mexican officials said.
"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".
On Saturday, Trump said that Mexico had agreed to "immediately begin" buying "large quantities" of agricultural goods from US farmers.
In a series of tweets, Trump warned that if Mexico does not cooperate with the United States and does not honor the agreement it reached with the administration last week that he will reimpose his proposed tariffs on Mexico.

Mexican officials have not confirmed any new agreement on agricultural products.
"It is our understanding that without tariffs and with USMCA ratification, there will be an increased rate, both in agricultural products and manufacturing products", Coqui said. She said there were many details discussed during negotiations that were not in the written declaration. "If we have to participate in a regional model like the one I have just described, we would have to present that to Congress". Mexico is the top importer of USA corn, wheat, pork and dairy by volume.
"We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the USA has been asking about getting for many years".
