Mexico: down on one knee in front of Trump?

US President, Trump announced a plan to duties on Mexican imports raise, to the Land of migrants to stop on the way to the American border. Now hangover prevails in Mexico.

Mexico relies on crisis diplomacy: the foreign Minister, Ebrard hopes to be in Washington today by his counterpart Pompeo received. Since President Trump has not threatened the southern neighbours on Thursday punitive tariffs of 5 percent on all Goods, because Mexico stops the Migration supposedly, there is a hangover in the export-dependent emerging country.

President, López Obrador has immediately sent its foreign Minister to the North, but Trump makes Mexico the brush-off: "you talk about for 25 years. We want to see deeds," he wrote on Twitter. Mexico's chief diplomat Ebrard countered: "duties may have the opposite effect and Mexico's ability to restrict the migrants to stop."

duties could be undesirable side effect have a

Mexico tries a trade war with its most important partners to avert. The day after the threat of the US President, Trump 10. To raise June, 5 per cent, duty on all Goods from Mexico, sent to President López Obrador of his chief diplomat, Ebrard into the Northern neighboring country. However, he had to pit initially as a shadow, as his American counterpart, Pompeo - has, if at all, only today the time for him. Mexico's foreign Minister contented himself with phone calls and press statements. In a statement, he hinted, that his country has the means of pressure:

"The duties can destabilize Mexico, financially and economically, and our ability to limit the Migration to tackle. Then it would be difficult to give new migrants from Central America have a future here in Mexico."

For months, the U.S. government puts the transit country, Mexico is under pressure to explain to the safe third country. You want to reach, that means Americans will ask in the United States for asylum, waiting in Mexico on the response of the US authorities. This pressure the Mexican government not to bend so far. Many newspaper commentators and analysts to think about their own tariffs on U.S. products. To punish the transit country of Mexico, because of the Migration from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, with duties, is absurd, so the Tenor, and The government had to offer Trump the forehead.

the First big test for Mexico's new President

President López Obrador, only since half a year in office and ahead of his biggest test, sent last defusing signals to Washington:

"for a confrontation we will not engage with us. We believe that you can come to an agreement with the U.S. government. We hold the U.S. government as a friendly government. And I want to continue to be Donald trump's friend."

Trump, however, insured in the last days several times how serious he my his inch-threat, and how little of him in conversations to be located. It is unclear what will become of the free-trade relations between Mexico, the United States and Canada, if Trumps duties come into force. The three North American countries are connected by the free trade agreement Nafta for 25 years and closely with each other. Trump had called Nafta in the election campaign as "the worst Deal of all time," wanted to terminate, had at the end of re-negotiate. The succession of the Treaty USMCA was just the parliaments for ratification, as a Trump, with his inch-threat against Mexico came as a surprise.
