China, Mexico -- He's gonna wreck the economy one way or another.
President Trump tweeted today:
On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,......at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow.
Screengrab below. He was under pressure not to announce this today, so he announced it today, per White House reporters.
