Trump Blasts ‘Failing’ New York Times, CNN While Issuing Warning To Mexico

President Trump slams ‘failing’ New York Times for false reporting on Mexico deal.

When President Trump announced that he was going to raise tariffs on Mexico if they did not do more to stop the influx of thousands of immigrants that were crossing Mexico to reach the United States you would expect the Democrats and the mainstream media to vehemently object, but not Republican senators.

One of the compliments that President Trump often pays to the Democrats is that they stick together no matter what, a trait you would expect from the Republicans when it came to securing the border, but shockingly, they joined with the Democrats to fight the president from putting 5 percent tariffs on Mexico. They would not even give him the benefit of the doubt and show him support over the several days of negotiations – while negotiations were going on the Republicans were on television saying they would fight him. It was disgraceful.

Now that the deal is done, and Mexico has agreed to take immediate action, of course it’s no surprise that the Democrats and the mainstream media are refusing to give the president credit, but it’s worse than that, the mainstream media is claiming that there was no ‘new deal,’ that it was negotiated months ago.

President Trump blasted The New York Times and CNN on Sunday as being “the enemy of the people” for reporting that a deal Mexico that allowed him to pull back on a new round of tariffs on Mexican imports was months old.

If that were the case, Mexico would have already stopped the influx, and there would not have been a need to threaten them with tariffs.

“Another false report in the Failing @nytimes. We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump tweeted. “Additionally, and for many years, Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border in things we had, or didn’t have, and now I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done.”

“Importantly, some things not mentioned in yesterday’s press release, one in particular, were agreed upon. That will be announced at the appropriate time,” Trump continued. “There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the USA, something that didn’t exist for decades. However, if for some unknown reason there is not, we can always go back to our previous, very profitable, position of Tariffs – But I don’t believe that will be necessary. The Failing @nytimes, & ratings-challenged @CNN, will do anything possible to see our Country fail! They are truly The Enemy of the People!”

Trump went on to say that for years Mexico had not been cooperative in talks about the border saying that he spoke to President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and believes he wants to “get the job properly done.”

The president also signaled that there will be more announcements “at the appropriate time.”

He also cautioned that if Mexico doesn’t carry through on its promises, “we can always go back to our previous, very profitable, position of Tariffs​.”

​”But I don’t believe that will be necessary. The Failing @nytimes, & ratings challenged @CNN, will do anything possible to see our Country fail! They are truly The Enemy of the People!​,” the president wrote in the last of four postings on the matter.​

The deal between the U.S. and Mexico came just a few days before the United States was set to impose a 5% tariff on Mexican goods coming into the U.S. until Mexico stopped the flow of illegal immigration that has been flooding the southern border.

The proposed tariffs would have increased 5% per month, maxing out at 25%, until Mexico brought the flow of illegal immigration to a stop.
