Trump threatens tariffs on Mexican goods

Graphic News

June 6, 2019 -- U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening to impose import taxes on all goods from Mexico in an effort to persuade America’s southern neighbour to do more to stop illegal migration.

Straining to stave off the threatened tariffs, Mexican and American officials claimed progress in White House talks, but Trump said Thursday that a “lot of progress” must be made to halt the 5% taxes due to go into effect on June 10.

The U.S. imported $346.5 billion worth of goods from Mexico in 2018, according to government data, meaning a 5% tariff will cost more than $17 billion.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
