Trump trade adviser says U.S. gave Mexico three-point demands
President says 5% Mexican tariff starting June 10 is no bluff
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro urged Mexico to do more to rein in migration into the U.S. ahead of a meeting Wednesday with senior Mexican officials, who are trying to persuade the Trump administration to drop its plan to impose tariffs next week.
Navarro said the U.S. has a three-part “solution” calling for Mexico to keep asylum seekers in that country, though he didn’t offer specific benchmarks for the country to meet.
