Trump defends Mexico tariff threat

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Trump on Tuesday defended his threat to impose tariffs on Mexican goods saying without them, the U.S. "would've had nothing." Mexico and the United States signed an agreement on Friday, with Mexico agreeing to take steps to control the flow of people from Central America, including deploying 6,000 members of a new national guard along its border with Guatemala.

The deal averted escalating import tariffs of 5% on Mexican goods, which Trump had vowed to impose unless Mexico did more to curb migration.
