No sign of Trump-Mexico deal on farm goods (AP FACT CHECK)

President Donald Trump is bragging about a new deal with Mexico that provides for “large” sales of U.S. farm goods, but it doesn’t appear to exist.

In weekend tweets, he announced in all capital letters that he had won the agreement to benefit America’s “great patriot farmers,” and that U.S. sales would begin “immediately.” There isn’t 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 Trump’s threatened tariffs.

There’s no evidence that Mexico agreed to “large” purchases of agricultural products from the U.S. as part of the deal to avoid tariffs. Nor did the White House provide any details to show such a deal exists.

When Mexico’s ambassador to the United States, Martha Barcena, was asked repeatedly Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether there was a new agricultural deal, she referenced instead the potential impact of the separate United States-Mexico-Canada trade deal, which has yet to be approved by Congress.

1. How to tell Trump is lying?

His lips are moving. The tariffs on Mexico to make them stop people from central America
coming to America were DOA in the Republican controlled senate and that is why Trump
is now claiming a victory w/a deal that never existed w/Mexico.

Washington Post, "President Trump has made more than 10,000 false or misleading claims."

3. Another way to tell if drumpf is lying.

His tiny little orange fingers are moving. Whether it's his mouth or fingers moving, it's all lies.

4. How many times did he say that he finished @ the top of his class @ Wharton?

Except he wasn't in the MBA school that Wharton was known for and he finished nowhere
near the top of his class @ the U. of Penn but that never stopped Trump from lying about
something that could so easily be checked. Trump went so far as claiming that his wife/
sex worker had a 4 year degree from a University in Slovenia where she went for 1 semester
before dropping out to be a model/sex worker.
