Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal - New York Times


WASHINGTON — The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations.

Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

He deleted the "Prince of Whales" tweet (which he isn't supposed to do, legally, but surprise! he doesn't care) and replaced it with the same thing, properly spelled, typed by a flunky, no doubt. Twitter isn't going to let him forget it.... That is, if he reads any of the tweets, which I doubt. He just has his tantrums and doesn't look at his mentions. Maybe aides read him just the bot and Trumpanzee responses.

Maybe he just likes dominating the news, be it news channels or twitter. I mean, "Trump boasts about his trip to Europe" isn't nearly as newsworthy as "Trump boasts about his trip to Europe and makes stupid typo" (or his speech to text app makes it for him).

If he was that bothered about people mocking his spelling and so on, I'm sure he'd have someone proof-read his tweets first. But as I understand it, it's not just him -- White House press releases apparently often contain some of pretty obvious typos (one turned the outgoing British PM into a porn star).

While obviously nobody expects someone with a high profile/follower count to read all their mentions it is nice when people on that level of twitter pick out a mention to reply to or something. Not to everyone, nobody expects them to have the time, but at least to show they do not view twitter as a 1-way conversation.

As to him getting selected tweets, sure, it already came out last year that he gets a daily (or several times a day if baby needs it) book of puffery saying how great he is. The sources were not mentioned with that but twitter would be one ideal place to mine.

Looks like Press Secretary Sarah Slanders is out of the White House at the end of the month.
