After putting pressure on Mexico with threats of escalating tariffs, President Trump’s hardball negotiation tactics finally got them to cave and take action to stem the flow of migrants looking to break into the U.S. It was a victory for the President the liberal media was forced to concede, much to their chagrin. But during Sunday Today, NBC News tried to downplay the win my suggesting Trump only achieved results that were already coming.

NBC White House correspondent Mike Viqueira began his report by elevating critics and pooh-poohing the win. “But a look at the details reveals that the agreement is an expansion of deals already made with Mexico and critics are calling it little more than a fig leaf,” he chided.

In a rundown of what was agreed to Viqueira noted:

The five percent tariff threat, scheduled to be implemented Monday, was aimed at forcing Mexico to slow the surge of Central American migrants to the U.S. border. After three days of talks, Mexico now promises to increase the number of its National Guard troops at its border with Guatemala, and expand an existing program that requires some asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed in the U.S.

A short time, later, fellow White House correspondent Kristen Welker admitted that the troop movement was “something they had promised a long time ago. But the U.S. said this week you need to get it done more quickly. They were sort of slow walking that.” Despite admitting that the Mexicans weren’t really serious about moving troops before Trump’s tariff threat, she suggested they were something “already coming”.
