NYTimes Reports Trump Admin Considered Imposing Tariffs on Australia

‘Abuser of the US’: Tough-talking Trump slams Mexico over mistreating America ‘for decades’ Trump officials say Mexico needs to act quickly on immigration to avoid tariffs

A levy on Australian goods would open up a new front it Trump's trade wars and be embarrassing for Morrison's recently re-elected government, which has touted close ties with the White House. "So, there's no specific target, there's no specific percent, but things have to get better".

On Friday, Mexico's top farm lobby said Mr. Lopez Obrador should target agricultural goods from states that support Mr. Trump's Republican Party if the US leader carries out his threat to punish Mexico for the migrants heading north.

President Trump blames Democrats for "doing nothing" when it comes to border security.

Mr Mulvaney rejected a suggestion that the tariffs endanger congressional approval of Mr Trump's new US-Mexico-Canada trade pact, known as the USMCA - a replacement for the current North American Free Trade Agreement developed after over a year of painstaking negotiations among the three countries.

"These tariffs will be paid by American families and businesses without doing a thing to solve the very real problems at the border", said Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, calling the proposed measures "exactly the wrong move".

The time stamp on the surveillance video is 3:20 a.m. Wednesday. Hurting Mexico's economy would not strengthen our southern border but weaken it.

"They won't help us, " Mulvaney lamented.

A more proactive plan is needed to stem the flow of immigrants to the U.S. As a nation, we need to stop making band-aid plans and creating short term solutions. The criticism from his own party did not let up Sunday. Sen. When asked about potential price increases, Mulvaney said inflation is still "under control" even after Washington imposed additional tariffs on its trading partners, arguing that it's "relatively easy to substitute other goods". He kept up the pressure on Mexico on Twitter.

"Either they stop the invasion of our Country by Drug Dealers, Cartels, Human Traffickers ..."

"America has had enough!" he added. He will not be in the country when the talks take place. "Or our many companies and jobs that have been foolishly allowed to move south of the border, will be brought back into the United States through taxation (tariffs)". "That border's only a quarter as long as the border with the United States". "This is a controllable area".

He also said that Mexico reserved the right to seek global legal arbitration to resolve the dispute. The Trump administration said it was imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum to strengthen USA national security, but critics argue that the approach strains relationships with allies that are far more important to US defense. It also has set off jitters about the potential for disruptive trade battles with other US allies.

Mulvaney sought to soothe these concerns.

"We intentionally left the declaration sort of ad hoc", he said.

Al Jazeera's Rosalind Jordan, reporting from Washington, said: "It's unusual and perhaps illegal for a government to impose tariffs for non-economic or trade-related reasons".
