Mr Trump has defended the deal reached Friday with Mexico to avert a five percent tariff on all Mexican goods that was to take effect Monday

Trump and other administration officials, however, say Mexico made major concessions and have credited his threat to slap a 5% tax on all Mexican goods if the country didn't immediately agree to do more to stem the flow of Central American migrants across the US southern border. As a part of the agreement, Mexico not only allows those returned from the U.S. to stay in Mexico but also must offer them work permits, health care and education, the CBS report says.
But when asked about that deal on Monday, Mr Ebrard said that there had been no additional agreement with the United States and that the American president was likely referring to expected growth in trade following the migration deal.
Mexican officials on Monday denied any such side agreement on controlling migrants. He said only that there were "a number of commitments made" and both the US and Mexico are now on the clock to prove they can shut off the flow of people. And on Monday, Mexico's foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, gamely took a stab at explaining what Trump meant.
Stung by criticism that the agreement mostly ramps up border protection efforts already underway, Trump on Monday hinted at other, secret agreements he says will soon be revealed.
Ebrard also denied the deal contained anything on Mexico buying USA farm goods, after Trumptweeted on Saturday that "MEXICO HAS AGREED TO IMMEDIATELY BEGIN BUYING LARGE QUANTITIES OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCT FROM OUR GREAT PATRIOT FARMERS!"

"We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, tariffs will be reinstated".
"I think the president has completely overblown what he purports to have achieved", Beto O'Rourke, a presidential contender, told ABC on Sunday.
While some Democrats feared Mr. Trump did too well, clamping down on asylum seekers, others said he accepted an agreement that didn't secure new concessions from Mexico. Without the threat, he has insisted, Mexico never would have acted. He's going to come back with more demands. It has also pledged to reinforce its southern border with Guatemala with 6,000 members of its National Guard militarised police force. "What did we win?"
"As the tariffs aren't imposed, he would be calculating, I suppose, there would be a boost to economic growth and that that will increase our imports, including grains", Ebrard said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
President López Obrador's government also said that it would take in several thousand people seeking asylum in the U.S. while their cases were...
