(FOX NEWS) – President Trump on Thursday abruptly announced a new 5 percent tariff on Mexico beginning in early June, saying the levy will “gradually increase” until the ongoing illegal immigration surge at the southern border is “remedied” and illegal migrants “STOP.”
“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP,” Trump wrote. “The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied, … ..at which time the Tariffs will be removed. Details from the White House to follow.”
The Washington Post reported earlier in the day that the Trump administration was considering the move, and that it had broad support in the White House — although some aides reportedly tried to talk Trump out of it.
“We are going to do something very dramatic on the border because people are coming into our country,” Trump told reporters Thursday.
