Trump is avoiding a crisis of his own making with US-Mexico migrant deal, critics say

Tariff plan with Mexico offPresident Donald Trump kept American business leaders, GOP lawmakers and Mexican negotiators on a knife's edge for seven anxiety-filled days with his threat to slap an escalating series of tariffs on all Mexican imports if the country didn't address migrants coming to the southern border.

When Trump yanked back his economic ultimatum late Friday night, he seemed to walk away with a win-win: no new trade war with a major U.S. economic partner, and "strong measures" by Mexico to curb the flow of Central American migrants.

But critics say Trump avoided a political crisis of his own making – one that could have wreaked havoc on the U.S. economy and sparked a political revolt from within his own party. And it's not clear how much the agreement with Mexico will really accomplish on illegal immigration, Trump's signature issue.
