Rubio: Trump deserves credit for “covering deal with Mexico”


At the end of the last week came the news that Mexico would cooperate in light of President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on imported Mexican goods.

The plan was to impose a 5% tariff starting on June 10th if Mexico did not actively contribute to curtailing illegal immigration.

The tariff would increase to 10% on July 1st. Then, on the first day of the following three months, the tariffs would be raised by an additional 5%. It would’ve then been capped at 25% until Mexico “substantially stops the illegal inflow of aliens coming through its territory.”
