White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told CNBC in an interview on May 31 that the president's move was not a "tariff war" but simply a measure to get Mexico "to do what it should be doing".

In a surprise announcement that could derail a major North American trade deal, Trump said Thursday he is slapping a 5 percent tariff on all Mexican imports, effective June 10, to pressure the country to do more to crack down on the surge of Central American migrants trying to cross the USA border.

"America has had enough", he tweeted.

She also said a number of organisations, including the US Chamber of Commerce, which represents most US businesses in the country, was considering to sue the US government to prevent the tariffs from taking effect.

The Mexican President didn't answer the question as to whether he would allow Mexico to become a so-called safe third country, which would allow United States authorities to send migrants back to Mexico and make them apply for asylum there.

He said Trump threatened to impose the tariff "to put pressure on Mexico".

Mr Trump said the import tax will increase by 5% every month until October, topping out at 25%.

Republicans on Capitol Hill and allies in the business community have signaled serious unease with the tariffs that they warn will raise prices for consumers and hurt the economy. He once said that China was "raping" the USA with its economic policies.

Mulvaney, who also appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press", said Mexico could take various steps to decrease the record numbers of migrants at the border. Trump issued his threat a little over 24 hours later, sending shock waves through the political world and through securities markets, which took another tumble late last week.

He said he thinks the United States is ready to discuss its threat to impose the tariff, effective June 10, as a means to combat illegal migration from Central America.

Economists and business groups are sounding alarms over the tariffs, warning they will hike the costs of many Mexican goods Americans rely on.

NAFTA went into effect on January 1, 1994, and since has interwoven the economies of Canada, the USA, and Mexico through the borderless exchange of manufactured goods that supply a variety of industries.

Trump says Mexico has been taking advantage of the United States for decades because of ineffective US immigration laws.

"One of the most positive things that's happened in the last several weeks in terms of passage of USMCA was lifting the tariffs on steel and aluminum", said Bradley.
