Trump Backs Away From Closing Border Threat, Issues Tariff Warning to Mexico

President Trump has gone from threatening to close the U.S./Mexico border to what he calls a “one-year warning”.????Only a few days ago, the Commander in Chief said that if Mexico was unable to stop the reported new wave of migrant caravans, then he would close the Southern border.????Following warnings from lawmakers in both parties and businesses over the devastating economic effect it would bring…????...today Trump told reporters at a cabinet meeting that he would use auto tariffs if the flow of drugs and illegal immigration into the U.S. didn’t subside.????“The whole ball game is cars.

And if that doesn’t stop the drugs, we close the border.”????The President said the tariffs would take place within a year, adding…????“You know I will do it.

I don’t play games.”
