The Remain in Mexico policy allows Trump's border agencies to bypass the "catch and release" policy imposed by Congress and the courts.

"No, I'm going to let Mexico do the announcement at the right time", he said, while insisting that the sheet of paper he pulled from the inside of his suit pocket and waved at reporters was part of the document.

While some Democrats feared Mr. Trump did too well, clamping down on asylum seekers, others said he accepted an agreement that didn't secure new concessions from Mexico. "And yet we charge them very little for French wine", the president told CNBC, adding that California winemakers have complained to him about the European Union tariffs.

"I think the cold, hard reality is, even though nearly none of my members were enthusiastic about the prospect of tariffs, you have to give the president credit - it worked", McConnell said, according to Politico.

In May, more than 132,000 people were apprehended at the southern border, according to US Customs and Border Protection, the highest monthly number in the past 13 years.

The EU has approved two areas for negotiation - one to cut tariffs on industrial goods, the other to make it easier for companies to show products meet EU or U.S. standards.

"They wanted something else totally different.to be signed", Ebrard said Monday. He said only that there were "a number of commitments made" and both the USA and Mexico are now on the clock to prove they can shut off the flow of people.

Pompeo also said the USA return of asylum-seekers to Mexico to await the resolution of their claims would hit "full throttle". The large majority of these people were comprised of family groups, mostly from South America.

'I don't want to say and you can just figure it out yourselves. I'm not going to say one way or another, ' he said.

President Trump said Monday that he plans to "do something" about the European Union tariffs imposed on American wine, saying the US pays too much to export wine to France while the USA imposed low tariffs to import French wine.

Speculation quickly turned to the idea that he was alluding to an agreement that would allow asylum seekers to stay in a third country while awaiting their decisions - a "Safe Third" deal.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said the measures could be needed if a deal announced last week between Washington and Mexico fails to reduce within 45 days the numbers of migrants entering Mexico, mainly from Central America, on their way to the USA border. And he said that Mexico was working on a proposal to establish a regional refuge system in conjunction with the United Nations and the governments of Guatemala, Panama and Brazil - three countries that are often starting points for migrants.

He said the tax on those goods would increase each month the problem persisted until October, when it would cap at 25 per cent.

But Trump said on Monday he would go ahead with the proposed tariffs if Mexico's Congress did not back part of the deal that may need politicians' approval.

It included a commitment from Mexico, for instance, to deploy its new National Guard to the country's southern border with Guatemala.

Still, critics question if the deal is actually new. "That will be announced at the appropriate time", Trump continued.
