The president’s remarks come after the two nations reached an agreement to help reduce the surge of illegal immigration on Friday.
On Saturday, President Trump blasted the Left-wing media such as, Comcast, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post for publishing false reports on his border immigration plan, saying threatening to raise tariffs on Mexico has already yielded results.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders weighed in on the successful agreement, saying President Trump’s work with Mexico is a win for America. On Twitter, Sanders said despite no help from what she calls the “do-nothing Democrats,” the president secured billions of dollars of funding to build the wall.
Despite no help from the do-nothing Democrats in Congress, President @realDonaldTrump secured billions in funding to build the wall and an unprecedented commitment from Mexico to stem the tide of illegal immigration. That’s leadership and another historic win for America.
