After U.S. President Donald Trump issued threats to Mexico to impose new trade tariffs, many people responded negatively to the implication and claimed that the Republican leader was unreasonable.

Moreover, it does not look like Mexico is planning to bow down to these threats either.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has responded to the threats, claiming that his country will provide a detailed explanation into what they are planning to do about illegal immigration and the problems it creates for its northern neighbor.

The Mexican president pointed out that the country was already working hard on the migration issue and that they had a vested interest in finding a satisfactory solution.

The Mexican leader stated: "The main thing is to inform about what we're already doing on the migration issue, and if it's necessary, to reinforce these measures without violating human rights."

Here is what Trump initially tweeted: "Mexico has taken advantage of the United States for decades. Because of the Dems, our Immigration Laws are BAD. Mexico makes a FORTUNE from the U.S., have for decades, they can easily fix this problem. Time for them to finally do what must be done!"

At the same time, he wanted to implement everything in a way that did not violate any human rights.

Trump's implication that Mexico has been "taking advantage" of the U.S. for decades was met with heavy criticism from many sides, and many people from both Mexico and the U.S. have pointed out the issues with that statement, and how it contradicted actual history.

Lopez Obrador added that Mexico has no interest in engaging with a trade war with the U.S., and the country would not find itself that low at any point.

At the same time, he claimed that they also had a plan for a remedy in case U.S. tariffs were indeed enacted. What that plan may be is not clear, although many people have started to speculate on the possible retaliation from the Mexican side. So far, the ball is in Trump's court.

Observers say the tariff threat might be empty and Trump will not go all the way.

Do you think Trump is serious about these tariffs, yes or no?
