WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is bragging about a new deal with Mexico that provides for large sales of U.S. farm goods, but it doesnt appear to exist.
In weekend tweets, he announced in all capital letters that he had won the agreement to benefit Americas great patriot farmers, and that U.S. sales would begin immediately. There isnt any sign of that happening, however. Mexican officials denied that anything on agriculture was included in the deal on border security reached Friday to avert Trumps threatened tariffs.
Trump also unfairly placed responsibility on Mexico for the entire U.S. drug problem, even though many of the known drug deaths have nothing to do with the country.
