White House states Mexico tariffs ‘still on track’ for Monday

SHANNON, Ireland (Reuters) – The United States is on track to implement threatened 5 percent tariffs on Mexican items on Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stated on Friday as migration talks with Mexican officials continued in Washington.

” Our position is still the same and we’re moving on with the tariffs. They’ll enter into result on Monday,” Sanders informed reporters in Ireland as President Donald Trump prepared to return house from a European journey. “They have actually made a great deal of progress throughout the last couple of days. The conferences have actually gone well but we’re still on track for tariffs on Monday.”
