Trump threatened via tweet on Thursday to impose the tariffs not for business reasons but to force Mexico to stop people from entering the US illegally.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said he had spoken to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by phone and said face-to-face talks between the two would take place on Wednesday in Washington. They have warned that the new tariffs will nearly certainly bring about negative economic consequences, as they are essentially taxes on American businesses and consumers.

The threat shook the markets and could upend Mr. Trump's push to get the U.S.

Trump's surprise announcement Thursday of new tariffs against a key U.S. trading partner was widely criticised, including by USA business groups, border-state politicians and some Republican lawmakers. "America has had enough!" He did not provide details of the plan.
