Trump took out a piece of paper from his pocket and waved it. His recently mysterious secret agreement between the United States and Mexico was captured and enlarged.
Trump showed reporters folded paper: Thats what people said I didnt have an agreement from ICPhoto.
According to the Washington Post on June 12, Trump has been claiming for two days that he has reached a secret immigration agreement with Mexico in addition to the United States-Mexico Joint Statement published last Friday. But the White House refused to give any details, and Mexico denied that such an agreement had been reached.
The outside world therefore doubts whether this secret agreement really exists.
Faced with doubts, Trump took out a folded piece of paper from his chest pocket Tuesday in front of reporters and waved it as part of a very long, very good agreement with Mexico.
In the meantime, Trump tried to stuff the paper back, but he could not help but pull it out and explain it again.
In the meantime, Washington Post photographer Jabin Botsford captured a photograph and exposed parts of the document.

The American media saw the words on the paper: _____________
... On the other hand. Both sides also intend to... Sharing of responsibilities on refugee disposal issues ___________. A consortium.
Mexico also commits itself to immediate... Domestic laws and regulations confirm any changes... For the entry into force and implementation of the agreement.
If, 45 days after the date of the Joint Statement, the United States, in consultation with Mexico and on the basis of discretion, decides that the measures taken by the Mexican Government in accordance with the Joint Statement have not fully achieved the effect of dealing with immigration to the southern border of the United States, the Mexican Government will take all necessary measures in accordance with domestic law to bring the Agreement into force and strive to ensure that the Agreement is in force. It works in 45 days.
Washington, June 7, 2019, Signatory: (Signature 1) (Signature 2)
According to the BBC, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard confirmed that Mexico had 45 days to prove its ability to contain immigration flows to the United States by strengthening its southern border.
The Washington Post questioned the legality of the leaked document. Because the snapshot showed that the document was signed by two people, the one on the left was obviously signed by the United States, and the one on the right was signed by Mexico. The signatories were not their respective presidents, senior diplomats or ambassadors. However, there may be other signatures that have not been photographed.
Interestingly, earlier this year, some keen reporters also found that the notebook that Bolton, assistant to the US President for National Security, was carrying when he attended the press conference was suspected to be a leak machine, which read 5,000 troops to Colombia in a clear way, thus arousing doubts from the outside world.
On July 7, the United States and Mexico reached an agreement after several days of negotiations, temporarily avoiding Trumps tariff threat.
Later, Trump claimed that Mexico has agreed to buy large quantities of agricultural products from our patriotic farmers, but the United States Department of State issued a Joint Statement between the United States and Mexico on the 7th did not mention agricultural trade, and three Mexican officials said they did not know that there were additional agreements.
At the same time, Trump and his aides have repeatedly referred to a secret agreement. He speculated that an undisclosed agreement had been reached with Mexico to announce it in due course.
Although Trump pulled out the paper for self-incrimination, Marcelo insisted on Monday that no such agreement had been reached with the United States, saying only that the two sides had agreed that the issue might be reopened in the future, according to the New York Times.
On Tuesday, Marcelo reiterated that there was no agreement other than the one announced by the two governments last Friday: We have nothing to hide.
But Trump made a series of confusing and contradictory statements, repeating that Mexico had to submit the agreement to their Congress, but he also said that he had the right to unilaterally implement the agreement if he wished.
It works when I want, but I respect the President of Mexico very much. I respect the people we deal with, so I dont want to do that, and they have to be approved by Congress.
When Mexico tells me it can be released, it will take effect.
In addition, the New York Times also reported that several months before Trump threatened to impose tariffs on Mexico, the United States and Mexico had discussed immigration issues many times, and Mexico had already made commitments to most of the provisions of the US-Mexico agreement.
On Tuesday, Trump, who had been demolished several times, still boasted, I dont know where the news from the New York Times came from. Over the years, people have been trying to achieve what we have achieved in just a few days, and those who have not, thats our difference.
