1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President
"Well we have an agreement on something that they will announce very soon. It's all done. And they have to get approval, and they will get approval if they don't get approval, we'll have to think in terms of tariffs, or whatever. But it's just another aspect of what we've done. It was all done because of the tariffs and because of the relationship that we have with Mexico. I spoke with the president yesterday.

"Sad that when you think of it Mexico is doing more for the United States, as of now, than Congress, specifically the Democrats. They have to get their act together they have to work and get something done because you get a tremendous problem at the border. You have people pouring in, and it means crime, it means drug, it means so many other things. We're building the wall. We're going to have close to 500 miles of world built by the end of next year. That's a lot. And we're moving along very rapidly. We won the big court case, as you know, the other day. And that was a big victory for us, so a lot of good things are happening. But I want to thank Mexico, and we do have one other thing that will be announced at the appropriate time. But they have to get approval from their legislative body."

"John Dean has been a loser for many years. So, I've been watching him on one of the networks that is not exactly Trump oriented. And I guess they paid him a lot of money over the years. No, John's been a loser for a long time. We know that. I think he was disbarred. And he went to prison. Other than that, he's doing a great job."
Stung by criticism that his deal to avert threatened Mexican tariffs mostly ramps up existing border efforts, President Donald Trump is insisting there's more to it than meets the eye.
At an event to welcome Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud and his team to the White House, Trump claimed that Mexico had agreed to action beyond what was outlined in the Friday announcement, teasing that more would be revealed soon.
"We do have one other thing that will be announced at the appropriate time, Trump said.
"But they have to get approval from their legislative body."
Many had thought Trump was alluding to the idea of Mexico becoming a "safe third country," which would make it harder for asylum seekers who pass through the country from other places to claim refuge in the U.S.
A safe third country agreement would need to be approved by Mexican lawmakers and it is unclear whether it would win support given the idea's unpopularity.
The president also called John Dean, who helped bring down the Nixon presidency, "a loser for many years."
Dean, a star witness during Nixon's Watergate scandal, testified Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller has provided Congress with a "road map" for investigating President Donald Trump.
