Trump has pushed back on that criticism, defending the deal and his threat to slap a 5 percent tax on all Mexican goods on Monday to pressure the country to do more to stem the flow of Central American migrants across the USA southern border. 'This is one page of a very long and very good agreement for both Mexico and the United States'.

Trump complained about France charging tariffs on United States wine in the past, tweeting in November that it's too hard for American wine producers to sell in France but the USA makes it "easy" to import French wines.

The plan to levy tariffs came to a halt after Mexico and the USA reached an agreement to curb illegal immigration.

On Saturday, Trump said that Mexico had agreed to "immediately begin" buying "large quantities" of agricultural goods from US farmers. The discrepancy could not be immediately reconciled.

"While in theory such an agreement would share the burden of refugee flows across several countries, in reality it could significantly worsen the current situation if the designated countries are unable or unwilling to properly accept and integrate the migrants", she said.

Asylum seekers from El Salvador and Honduras first pass through Guatemala when fleeing their homes, while Cubans and Haitians often fly first to Panama before heading to the United States through Mexico.

'Two weeks ago, I'll tell you what we had.

European Union import duties on wine are higher than U.S. tariffs on European wines, including those from France, but EU consumers buy less of the American product.

After nine days of uncertainty, Mr. Trump backed down and accepted Mexico's promises.

"They wanted something else totally different.to be signed", Ebrard said Monday.

Mexico said it would deploy its National Guard throughout the country from Monday with 6,000 additional troops being sent to its southern border with Guatemala. Mexico will also boost security on its side of the border, including the deployment of its National Guard.

Pompeo also said the US return of asylum-seekers to Mexico to await the resolution of their claims would hit "full throttle". The controversial practice, known as "Remain in Mexico", started past year and has been challenged in court.

Trump had threatened to impose 5% import tariffs on all Mexican goods from Monday if Mexico did not agree to his demands to tighten its borders.

Pompeo was vague about what metrics the Trump administration would use to measure success or failure in the steps Mexico takes. Other administration officials have said success will be judged on how many migrants show up at the USA border. Those figures typically go down during the hot summer months. The duties would have increased every month until they reached 25pc in October, unless Mexico stopped illegal immigration across its border with the US.

Although Trump could have said that the Times own article, in arguing that it was months of negotiation which brought about portions of this deal, was still inadvertently crediting his administration's efforts, it was probably the challenges to his backbone on tariffs that enraged him.
