President Donald Trump tweeted late Friday celebrating that he had reached a deal with Mexico and would hold off on his threatened tariffs.

Per CBS News, Mexico agreed to up the national guard presence along the Guatemalan border and crack down on human trafficking. The deal also includes asylum seekers waiting in Mexico for their hearings.

Republicans, strongly opposed to the tariffs, have been pushing Trump to make a deal by threatening a veto-proof vote to nullify Trump’s national emergency declaration.
