WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump mentioned he’s now contemplating a “ban,” tariffs and remittance charges after Guatemala determined to not transfer ahead with a protected third nation settlement that will have required the Central American nation to absorb extra asylum seekers.
“Guatemala … has determined to interrupt the deal that they had with us on signing a essential Secure Third Settlement. We had been able to go,” Trump tweeted.
“Now we’re trying on the ‘BAN,’ Tariffs, Remittance Charges, or the entire above. Guatemala has not been good,” Trump wrote.
It was not instantly clear what insurance policies he was referring to. The White Home and the Guatemalan authorities didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
Trump has made proscribing immigration a cornerstone of his presidency and re-election marketing campaign. He has pushed Guatemala, Mexico and different nations within the area to behave as buffer zones and absorb asylum seekers who would in any other case go to america.
The Guatemalan authorities had been anticipated to carry a summit with Trump throughout which Guatemala’s President Jimmy Morales would signal the protected third nation settlement, however the nation’s constitutional courtroom blocked Morales from making the declaration.
