    Trump links US border wall to NAFTA renegotiation, warns Mexico 'must stop drug, people flows'

    President Donald Trump said Mexico must do more to stop the flow of drugs and people across its border, claiming the country is ridiculing U.S. weakness on the issue.
    "They must stop ... or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA," Trump tweeted.

    President Donald Trump explicitly linked his proposal to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to ongoing NAFTA negotiations, warning the country that the flow of illicit drugs and immigrants "must stop."

    Via Twitter, the president ripped the U.S.'s southern neighbor for doing "very little, if nothing" at stemming illegal immigration and narcotics from flowing across the border. He renewed a threat he made earlier this year, warning that successful trade pact renegotiation talks would hinge on Mexico making efforts to secure the border.

    With increasing regularity, the president has gotten more aggressive in his rhetoric. On several occasions, he's hinted at trying to force Mexico to pay for the proposed border wall, an idea that Mexican officials have emphatically rejected. Last year, the White House floated the idea of a border adjustment tax on Mexican goods, a proposal that met stiff resistance in Congress before being it was ultimately killed in tax reform talks.

    Meanwhile, talks to renegotiate the trade pact between the U.S., Canada and Mexico have gotten increasingly contentious. In theory, a NAFTA termination letter would start the countdown for a 6-month process to abrogate the pact. However, some think Washington could use such a move to gain leverage over Canada and Mexico.

    In January, Mexico threatened to leave the negotiations altogether if Trump triggered the process to withdraw from the pact.

    President Donald Trump on Sunday explicitly linked his proposal to build a barrier between the U.S. and Mexico to ongoing NAFTA negotiations, as he renewed a warning that the flow of illicit drugs and undocumented immigrants from the country "must stop."

    Via Twitter, the president ripped the U.S.'s southern neighbor for doing "very little, if nothing" to stem illegal immigration and narcotics from flowing across the border. He repeated a threat he made earlier this year, warning that successful trade pact renegotiations may hinge on Mexico making efforts to secure its side of border.

    @realDonaldTrump
    Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!

    Trump also took aim at the outlines of a deal to legalize the status of legions of illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children, and called on Congressional Republicans to exercise a "nuclear option" to toughen immigration. Last fall, Trump canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, colloquially referred to as DACA.

    @realDonaldTrump
    Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

    With increasing regularity, the president has gotten more aggressive in his negotiating tactics. On several occasions, he's hinted at trying to force Mexico to pay for the proposed border wall, an idea that Mexican officials have emphatically rejected.

    Just last week, Defense Secretary James Mattis spoke with Trump about using military funds to pay for the proposed wall, in the wake of the president signing a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that fell short of fully funding the president's request for border security. The budget busting legislation alienated many conservatives, and put Trump on shaky footing with some of his most ardent supporters.

    For much of 2017, the White House floated the idea of a border adjustment tax on Mexican goods, a proposal that met stiff resistance in Congress before it was ultimately killed in tax reform talks.

    Meanwhile, talks to renegotiate the trade pact between the U.S., Canada and Mexico have gotten increasingly contentious. In theory, a NAFTA termination letter would start the countdown for a 6-month process to abrogate the pact. However, some think Washington could use such a move to gain leverage over Canada and Mexico.
