Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) predicted that Trump would cave and find a reason to revoke his tariff threat towards Mexico.

Last Tuesday Schumer said on the Senate floor that he expects Trump to back off his call to levy tariffs on Mexican imports.

“Frankly, I don’t believe President Trump will actually go through with the tariffs,” Schumer said in his remarks.


“President Trump has a habit of proposing asinine and dangerous policies before backing off,” he added.

After the last night announcement of the Mexico deal, Sen. Schumer tried to be sarcastic with a twitter message:

This is an historic night!

@realDonaldTrump has announced that he has cut a deal to “greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”

Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future.
