On Friday, CIA intelligence officer Ned Price ripped President Donald Trump over his “simple recipe” to solve the crisis with Mexico.

Trump threatened to impose tariffs on Mexico if they did not decrease the flood of immigration into the U.S. — despite several of his aides warning him not to.

Trump announced an agreement with Mexico on Twitter, in which he said that the tariffs would be suspended.

“I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended. Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take active measures to,” he said.

Price said that Trump manufactured the plan all along.

In the new documents obtained by Politico, President Donald J. Trump referred to the sanctuary cities as “anarchist jurisdictions."A month earlier in a Sept. 2 order, Trump called on federal agencies to limit funding to jurisdictions that “disempower” police departments and promote “lawlessness" -- a move that stemmed from protests over systemic racism and police violence.

Trump’s ad-libbed remarks thoroughly undermined what he was reading off the teleprompter
