However, there were also hopeful comments earlier Wednesday, including from White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, who said on CNN that there were commitments Mexico could make to avoid the tariffs, which he said “may not have to go into effect precisely because we have the Mexicans’ attention.”
The tariffs carry enormous economic consequences for both countries, and politically they underscore a major ideological split between Trump and his party.Read more on NewsOK.com
