Trump teases Mexico agreement, seeks ‘great deal with China’

By: Paige Hubbard 

U.S. President Donald Trump gave reporters a glimpse of what he said was a deal with Mexico on Tuesday (June 11), but offered few details while he also discussed trade with China and asylum for Venezuelans.

Trump was speaking to reporters before departing for Iowa when he took a piece of paper from his jacket pocket, held it up and said it was the deal with Mexico. He said it was “a very good agreement” for Mexico and the United States, but said he would let Mexico announce it.

Trump also returned to the theme of trade with China, saying that China wants a trade deal “very badly” but he is not interested in an accord unless it is a great deal.

Trump told reporters at the White House he expected to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Japan this month but Beijing needed to reverse its decision to reject some of the previously negotiated steps on trade.

He also said that his administration is looking into an asylum for Venezuelans who are besieged by a political, economic and social crisis at home. Trump said he is considering Temporary Protected Status for Venezuelans.

Following his comments, Trump left for Iowa. Trump is due to visit an ethanol plant in Council Bluffs on Tuesday before delivering remarks at an Iowa Republican Party dinner in Des Moines.
