Trump thanks Mexico president for immigration deal

United States President Donald Trump thanked his Mexican counterpart on Saturday, as well as Mexico's top diplomat, for their hard work on reaching an agreement to curb illegal immigration across the southern US border.

"I would like to thank the President of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, and his foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, together with all of the many representatives of both the United States and Mexico, for working so long and hard to get our agreement on immigration completed!" he tweeted.

Earlier, Trump announced that a deal with Mexico has been reached, thus suspending proposed 5% tariffs on Mexican imports that were first set to kick in next week.
