WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s deal to avert his threatened tariffs on Mexico includes few new solutions to swiftly stem the surge of Central American migrants flowing over America’s southern border.  https://apnews.com/3664ed5dd32f4bdea53927999a8c4279 

“Three Mexican officials said Saturday they were not aware of any side accord in the works, and that agricultural trade hadn’t been discussed...[The State Dept.] also made no mention of agricultural trade as part of the agreement.”  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-08/mexico-never-agreed-to-farm-deal-with-u-s-contradicting-trump?srnd=premium 

.@margbrennan asks Mexican ambassador to the U.S. Marta Bárcena Coqui four times whether Mexico agreed to “immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural products" as Trump tweeted.

Marta Bárcena Coqui dodges four times.
