What's next for U.S.-Mexico negotiations?
As critics continued to suggest that the US agreement with Mexico did not achieve much, President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday morning that the agreement has more than meets the eye.
"It is important to note that some things were agreed ..... not mentioned in yesterday's press release, one in particular. That will be announced at the right time, "the president wrote in a series of four tweets.
Trump was defending his newly announced agreement with Mexico by reporting that much of what was in the agreement was not new. In his tweets, he attacked the New York Times and CNN directly, calling them "the enemy of the people."
While he proudly defended the agreement and said he expected Mexico to be "very cooperative," the president said he could always return to the threat of tariffs: "We can always go back to our previous position, very profitable, of tariffs, but not You think it will be necessary. "
Ambassador Martha Bárcena Coqui of Mexico, speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," addressed Trump's morning tweets saying: "There are many details that we discussed during the negotiations and during the talks that we did not put in the statement. Because there are different paths that we have to follow ".
The ambassador said that adjustments will be made as the situation on the border evolves. "We will continue having technical conversations almost weekly," he said.
