President Donald Trump speaks before he departs Shannon Airport, Thursday, June 6, 2019, in Shannon, Ireland.
President Donald Trump said there was a “good chance” of a deal with Mexico over migration as he flew back from Europe on Friday, just days ahead of tariffs taking effect on Mexican products.
As U.S. and Mexican officials talked in Washington, Trump tweeted from Air Force One that Mexico would buy U.S. farm products “at very high levels.” That appeared to be a new development in talks that have to date centered on Trump's demands that Mexico curb the flow of Central American migrants to the U.S. border. Trump has said 5% tariffs on all Mexican goods would begin Monday in the absence of a deal, and rise over time to 25%.
Also Friday, White House economist Kevin Hassett and Mark Short, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, both made positive comments on the U.S.-Mexico talks, taking place at the State Department. Short told reporters the tariffs could be halted if discussions went well.
U.S. stocks DJIA, +1.17% jumped Friday as a disappointing jobs report fueled hopes of an interest-rate cut by the Federal Reserve.
Trump also dubbed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Nervous Nancy” in a separate tweet that appeared to reference reported comments by her, in which she told senior Democrats she’d like to see the president “in prison.”
“Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas. There is no evidence for such a thing to have been said,” Trump tweeted. Politico reported Pelosi made the comment in a meeting with senior Democrats as lawmakers debate opening an impeachment inquiry against Trump in the wake of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
The president implored Democrats to work with him on lowering prescription drug prices and infrastructure. In May, Trump broke off talks with Democrats on infrastructure after Pelosi accused him of engaging in a “coverup.”
