Mexico’s foreign minister offers an wonderful translation of Trump’s tweets

"There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the US, something that didn't exist for decades", the president wrote, adding that his administration "can always go back" to the previous position of imposing tariffs against Mexican imports if that doesn't happen.

"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", he wrote, claiming that it would be "revealed in the not too distant future and will need a vote by Mexico's Legislative body!". Lopez Obrador said Mexico would offer them jobs, health care and education.

"In this agreement, the migrants are currency", he said. "There are no tariffs, there is no threat of tariffs in 90 days", Ebrard said at the Monday morning news conference alongside the Mexican president. An appeals court recently overturned a federal judge who had blocked the program as it makes its way through the courts.

"We're very pleased with this agreement".

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.

At one of Tijuana's already overcrowded migrant shelters, asylum-seeker Patricia Monzon said she was hopeful her patience and compliance with the law would ultimately be rewarded.

But Mexico's Foreign Affairs Minister Marcelo Ebrard on Monday said there were no undisclosed parts of the U.S. - Mexico deal.

Economists had warned the pain of Trump's threatened tariffs - which were to start at five percent Monday and rise incrementally to 25 percent by October - and Mexican retaliatory measures would have been acute for both countries, with potentially global spillover.

"Because President Trump emerges as a clear victor from his week-long confrontation with Mexico over our neighbor's lax enforcement of its southern border, reflexive Trump critics will scramble to find some way of containing what is a clear Trump triumph, which came with assists by Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who conducted the key negotiations".

Imposing tariffs on Mexico would have left the United States fighting trade wars with two of its three largest trading partners and would further unnerve financial markets already on edge about a global economic slowdown, Reuters noted.

"Last week we saw proof that tariffs work".

Mnuchin said he planned to have a private conversation with the head of China's central bank, Yi Gang.

U.S. President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping are due to meet in Osaka for the G20 summit on June 28-29.

"Now that we've gotten the threat of tariffs out of the way, I hope that Speaker Pelosi will put that on the House floor, " he said. "I don't think it's a breakdown in trust or good or bad faith". He's going to come back with more demands.

But Mexico managed to dodge one of Trump's main demands: to accept a "safe third country" agreement in which refugees arriving in Mexico would be forced to seek asylum there rather than the U.S. The countries subsequently engaged in talks to resolve their tensions. But he added, "I would expect the main progress will be at the G20 meetings of the presidents".
