Asked if he was prepared to release the details of the agreement the President said, “no, because I’m going to let Mexico do the announcement at the right time.”
Instead of answering Qs about purported secret provisions of his agreement with Mexico, Trump insults everyone's intelligence by pulling sheet of paper out of his pocket, brandishing it, but refusing to show to reporters.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) June 11, 2019

ABC News reported that the U.S. and Mexico reached a deal on Friday regarding immigration at the U.S./Mexico Southern Border. The deal allowed the President to remove his threat of five percent blanket tariffs on Mexico imports that would have taken affect on Monday, increasing monthly with the cap being twenty-five percent by October.
The New York Times reported that in response to President Trump’s weekend tweets that first mentioned the secret portion of the deal reached with Mexico, American Officials said they believe that he was referring to an “agreement in principle to revisit the migration situation, and they said it gave the United States strong leverage over Mexico to live up to its promises. The numbers will be reviewed in 45 days and again in 90 days, officials said.”
Ebrard said, “There is no other thing beyond what I have just explained,” the AP reported on Monday.
In response to the President’s tweet that states in part that Mexico will buy more American agriculture products from the U.S., Ebrard said, “We do not have a specific agreement on products of that nature.”
Asked Monday about Mexico’s denial of a deal beyond what was made public, the President told reporters “I don’t think they will be denying it very long.”
