BREAKING: Trump considering DELAY of new tariffs on Mexico

Officials from Mexico have been negotiating this week with the US over the big new tariff threat from Trump over the issue of illegal immigration. Now it appears that negotiations are going well enough that Trump may delay the implementation of the tariffs as negotiations continue:

BLOOMBERG – The U.S. is considering delaying President Donald Trump’s threatened tariffs on Mexico as talks continue over stemming the flow of undocumented migrants and illegal drugs from Central America, according to people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg News reports.

Mexico is pushing for more time to negotiate over concerns the two sides won’t be able to reach agreement on all the steps Mexico would have to take to avert the tariffs, one person said. Trump has said the tariffs will be enacted on Monday.



Well this is good news.

If nothing else it means that there’s a sincere effort on the part of Mexico to try and do something about the issue of illegal drugs and people coming over our border.

The border situation is a major crisis and a solution that involves Mexico would be huge. I would also mean that Congress won’t have to take action against Trump in a year before a big election.

  1. you can add this to the border crisis…illegals being allowed to fly the friendly skies without ANY FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, without any health inspection, basically putting entire plane loads of people at risk for diseases that we eradicated from the US, decades ago. What the HECK! Where is CONgress? and why are US citizens being forced to adopt the new “REAL ID” cards for domestic travel, when the TSA will let anyone fly?

  2. Over 200,000 in April and May, I would not tarry with the tariffs too long Pres. Trump, seems like that’s the only time they have responded to our demands of keeping them in their side of the border.

  3. So Trump threatens tariffs and Mexico complies and have we not learned by now that Trump IS the MASTER AT NEGOTIATING!!!

        1. Not only is it getting built the Military is now painting it to make it beautiful (Trumps promise as well)!!!

      1. Repairs to existing border barriers (which is what this is) is not new wall construction. No new wall has been built thus far.

        In fact, according to the the bylaws for “We Build the Wall”, as a new 501c(4) non-profit Kolfage, never registered with the Internal Revenue Service to manage the funds and forthcoming wall-construction projects. No approvals have been made yet and until they are, construction can not start.

        The governing rules of the new organization also set out the creation of “finance and audit committees to ensure all spending is used towards the stated purpose of the organization, building segments of border wall.”

        But Kolfage recently did purchase two Yamaha boat engines for his yacht, “while his finances purportedly collapsed after Facebook shut down his fake news pages.” Wonder where that $$$$ came from?

        Kolfage has a long history of fund-raising for various causes since 2013. He’s used GoFundMe to finance professional projects and lawsuits and to purchase land. Kolfage, a prolific operator of hoax pages on Facebook, raised money in the past to help veterans’ programs in hospitals – only thing, no money ever actually went to those hospitals.

        Kolfagfe’s Facebook page has filled up with angry donors since April wondering where the money went. The big-shot Conservative names brought in to help spread Kolfage’s wall hoax have all gone silent regarding the matter but maybe the patrioty-y thing to do would be to, I dunno, ask them about it. Just to see what the response is. For giggles.

        Kolfage’s ultimate goal of $1 Billion for the wall,. fell very, very, very, very, very short and after donations were refunded earlier this year, the total stood at $14 million dollars. Just enough to build and install 1/3 of one mile of wall.

        Only $14 million raised out of 325 million citizens? Well, that doesn’t sound very patriot-y after all. But don’t fret, wall-wishers. I’m sure another wall campaign will emerge around a month or so before Xmas.

        Happy Holidays.

        1. Again…. not talking about Kolfage’s wall.

          Talking about Donald’s wall. Or retrofit. Or whatever he’s doing that we’ve all seem to have forgotten about.

  7. Well do something about the streaming across the Border.Go after those RINOS who said they would not support your tariffs against Mexico.Mexico is the problem so what are you going to do.So damn tired of you saying something one day and the next changing your mind and doing nothing.May illegal immigration rose to over 130,000,most ever for one month and under your watch.Good job of getting rid of Nielsen at DHS but your replacement was even worse..

    1. how many times have you called your representatives to voice your objections to the CRISIS at the southern border???

        1. Mine do and I’m from the VERY LIBERAL state of California. Do they take heed to my complaints…not usually, but I sleep better at night.

          1. Oh sure, they take my letters too. They read the first paragraph or so and then immediately file it in their circular cabinet.

      1. It appears the Congress and the Senate are not supporting the President at all on the Tariffs and the Wall and now the President is wavering on the tariffs.I also am from Ca,however we have had so much gerrymandering in Ca.Maxine Waters might even be my Representative. LOL What shall I tell her,.
