‘All I have done, no credit!’ Enraged Trump defends US-Mexico migrant deal

President tweets ire at New York Times and opponents as agreement to avoid tariffs comes under scrutiny

The Trump administration was forced to defend its immigration agreement with Mexico on Sunday, amid reports that key provisions in the deal, forged under the threat of trade tariffs, were mostly old commitments agreed to months ago.

A surge in migration to America’s southern border continues, with May bringing the highest number of monthly apprehensions made by US authorities in the past 13 years.

In the deal announced with significant self-congratulation by Donald Trump on Friday, Mexico agreed to deploy its national guard and to expand a heavily criticised program that keeps migrants seeking asylum in the US in Mexico as their claims are processed. Trump withdrew a threat of 5% tariffs on all Mexican goods.

But on Saturday the New York Times reported that Mexico had already agreed to key provisions in the joint declaration during secretive negotiations over the past six months.

On Sunday, the president fired off a series of enraged tweets as he headed for a second day of golf at his course in Sterling, Virginia.

5. Wrong. We give him entire credit for the Kinder Kamps full of traumatized kids & babies...

We give him entire credit for the adult border prisons that are now packed like...cattle cars.

Don't worry, Red Don. History will give you credit for so much it will make you cry out from Hell.
