Trump threatens to blow up his own Mexico trade deal in unhinged tweets

President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to blow up the trade deal his administration negotiated with Mexico last year if the country doesn't stop the flow of immigrants into the United States.


The president began his tweet storm by attacking the Washington Post for accurately reporting that he backed off his threats to completely shut down the southern American border.

"The Crazed and Dishonest Washington Post again purposely got it wrong," the president wrote. "Mexico, for the first time in decades, is meaningfully apprehending illegals at THEIR Southern Border, before the long march up to the U.S. This is great and the way it should be. The big flow will stop."

He then threatened to rip up his trade deal if Mexico doesn't play ball.

"However, if for any reason Mexico stops apprehending and bringing the illegals back to where they came from, the U.S. will be forced to Tariff at 25% all cars made in Mexico and shipped over the Border to us," he wrote. "If that doesn’t work, which it will, I will close the Border. This will supersede USMCA. Likewise I am looking at an economic penalty for the 500 Billion Dollars in illegal DRUGS that are shipped and smuggled through Mexico and across our Southern Border. Over 100,00 Americans die each year, sooo many families destroyed!"
