US President Donald Trump appeared Tuesday and said that if he wants to, he can bring into force his alleged "secret agreement" with Mexico and thus contradicted the Mexican government's version and his own statement that, for implement the pact, it is necessary to ratify before the Congress of the neighboring country.
Before leaving the White House on his way to Iowa, Trump approached the journalists and took from his jacket a folded sheet of paper, which he waved before them without showing their contents. "This is the agreement that everyone says I do not have. I will let Mexico make the announcement (about its content) at the right time, "said the president.
However, the "The Washington Post" photographer Jabin Botsford managed to capture an image of the paper and, after reversing his position by editing it, he managed to uncover the content. What is not very clear if it was an "oversight" or that movement was really voluntary.
In the document that the president of the United States showed to the media, the final part could be read, in which it seemed that the paper was signed by a US official and a Mexican official, although it did not contain notorious revelations.

June 11, 2019Trump has been insisting since Sunday that the agreement that his government reached last Friday with the Mexican to stop the imposition of tariffs on imports from the neighboring country includes elements that have not yet been announced.
However, the Mexican Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said Monday that "there is no agreement of any kind that has not been announced" and that everything agreed was released on Friday, but Trump has continued with his version. "This is a page of a very long and very good agreement between Mexico and the United States," the president said. In addition, he said that the Mexican government does not want to make the agreement public yet because its content "would have to be submitted to (the approval of) its legislative body."
The paragraphs discovered on the paper indicate that the US and Mexico intend to "share the burden in relation to the prosecution of refugees" and mention a possible action by the Mexican government to identify "changes" in their "national laws and regulations."
They also confirm the advance this Monday by Ebrard: that in 45 days the advances in the control of the migratory flow with the United States will be evaluated. The document in Trump's hands states that "if the US it determines, at its discretion and after consulting with Mexico, 45 days after the date of issuance of the joint declaration, "that the measures adopted have not been" sufficient "to reduce immigration, the Mexican Executive must correct that situation. "The Government of Mexico will take all necessary steps under its national laws so that the agreement can take effect (…) in 45 days." indicates the text
Bolton taught a notebook in another "carelessness"
Interestingly, the disclosure of some papers is not the first time they give rise to various articles. At the end of January this year, the National Security Adviser, John Bolton, left in the open a free media where he had written down some words that revealed the intention of sending 5,000 soldiers to Colombia on its border with Venezuela during a wheel press that was convened to discuss the sanctions that Trump would impose against the state-owned company Petróleos de Venezuela.
In that context, a week before, the leader of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, had proclaimed himself president in charge of the Caribbean country and had called a multitude of protests against the regime of Nicolás Maduro. . (tagsToTranslate) trump (t) sheet (t) discovered
