President Trump again claimed to have a "secret" deal with Mexico on Tuesday-and while he declined to provide details for reporters at the White House, he helpfully displayed a piece of paper that he said was part of the agreement.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned of implementing a "phase two" if the immigration deal with Mexico does not yield satisfactory results. "If we're successful, the number of people waiting for asylum in Mexico will decrease", he said.

It also stated that Mexico had committed to doing everything it could immediately to become a safe third country.

Ebrard said Tuesday there is no secret deal.

While the Mexican government was able to fend off the pressure of looming tariffs, the country's private sector is still unnerved, especially as Trump and his officials continue to invoke sanctions. He said that if migration into the USA isn't reduced, the White House wants his country to accept asylum applications from Central Americans instead of allowing them to apply across the border, a measure that would require the approval of Mexico's senate.

The initial deal appeared to repeat previous undertakings the Mexicans have made. On the subject of how Mexico would pay for the increased security, Obradror said the increased security would be in part paid for by the off-loading of the presidential jet and helicopters purchased by his predecessor.

USDA Fairly Aggressive on Dropping Corn Yield and Production
Citing declining cow numbers and slowing growth in milk output per cow, the USDA cut its 2019 milk production forecast. Concerns about planting delays last month drove corn futures to a three-year high.

That would push the Central American migrants problem from our southern border to Mexico's southern border where it belongs. For a long time, for many years, people tried to get what we got in a period of a couple of days, and they couldn't get it.

In the same interaction with reporters, the United States president attacked former USA vice-president Joe Biden, who is the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2020 election. Absolutely everything is right here.

CORNISH: That's reporter James Frederick in Tapachula, Mexico.

That document says the countries discussed a "possible deal" to process asylum-seekers in whichever country they arrive in first. The US department released a joint declaration saying that Mexico would be curbing the human trafficking and irregular migration. "There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the United States of America, something that didn't exist for decades". 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.

Trump's negotiating style, which relies heavily on blackmail and whims, goes against existing frameworks of cooperation and contributes nothing to global governance or long-term projects, said Laborde. That wouldn't be prudent'.

USA and Mexican officials have reportedly agreed to a 45-day timeline to crackdown on the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the United States' southern border.
