Make America whine again: Trump threatens French wine with tariffs

It's all done. They have to get approval, and they will get approval.

"We do not anticipate a problem with the vote", Trump said on Twitter, but threatened that if the measure fails there, he will once again return to his threat of imposing new tariffs on Mexican goods.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard speaks during a news conference at National Palace in Mexico City, Mexico, June 10, 2019.

His book, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America, will be published on Tuesday. I don't blame them, but this is actually ultimately going to be good for Mexico, too, and it's good for the relationship of Mexico with us, ' he said.

The deal, in part, according to a joint declaration issued Friday after a meeting between Trump and Lopez Obrador, said Mexico agreed to deploy 'its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border'.

Mexico said Monday it will discuss a "safe third country" agreement with the United States - in which migrants entering Mexican territory must apply for asylum there rather than the U.S. - if the flow of undocumented immigrants continues.

Although Trump could have said that the Times own article, in arguing that it was months of negotiation which brought about portions of this deal, was still inadvertently crediting his administration's efforts, it was probably the challenges to his backbone on tariffs that enraged him.

"We have fully signed and documented another very important part of the Immigration and Security deal with Mexico, one that the USA has been asking about getting for many years".

"Nothing more than warmed-up leftovers", said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat.

Tough luck, Mr. Trump said.

"That's the agreement that everybody says I don't have", Trump told reporters outside the White House as he prepared to leave for a campaign trip to Iowa.

Mr. Trump has embraced his persona as "tariff man", slapping duties on friends and adversaries alike over the past two years. "These are agreements that Mexico had already made, in some cases months ago", said Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, speaking on ABC's "This Week".

Under the agreement, Mexico will rapidly expand a programme under which migrants applying for asylum in the United States wait out the process in Mexico.

Since coming to power in 2017, Mr Trump has launched bitter trade disputes with nearly all major world powers, prompting the European Union to slap new tariffs on American bourbon in June previous year.

Lionel Briand, communications chief for the French Customs office, previously told The Associated Press that the U.S. gets charged the same tariffs imposed on all non-EU countries.

The president's unexpected interview came after he chose to call into the show and offer up his response to Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Myron Brilliant's criticism of using tariffs as a negotiating tactic.

Geoffrey T. Gertz, a fellow on global economy and development for the Brookings Institution, said Mr. Trump was risking foreign trading partners' goodwill by using access to the USA economy as a cudgel.

"There is no other thing beyond what I have just explained", he said.

He also sided with those who said Mr. Trump didn't win much substance with the deal.

The Wine Institute claims that "high tariff rates constitute the single most restrictive barrier to US wine exports", however, the French - known worldwide for their wine - do not import much American wine to begin with.
