Trump’s ‘Secret Agreement’ With Mexico Was Just Uncovered by Photographer on WH Lawn

Don’t believe that Donald Trump has a brand new deal with Mexico?

Well, he wants everyone to know that the proof is in his pocket.

Tump was a bit miffed by a New York Times report published over the weekend, which said that the major terms of the immigration agreement between the U.S. and Mexico that caused him to retract his tariff threats were actually negotiated months ago by the former Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Kirjsten Nielsen.

Since then, he has called the report a false one, argued that the deal was new, and teased that there was information in the final agreement that has not yet been revealed.

So, in order to dispel any rumors that questioned the validity of his claims, Trump pulled a folded piece of paper out of his jacket, proudly displaying it in front of a group of reporters. He told them it was one page of the deal with Mexico, but, despite the reporters’ pleas, the president would not hand the paper over for analysis. He was just keeping everyone on their toes.

Many people guessed it was just a blank piece of paper, but alas, it was not.

Washington Post photographer Jabin Botsford caught the paper on camera as well as what it said:

And as Twitter quickly noted, this “SOOPER SEKRET” deal is a dud…a nothingburger.
