Last night, President Trump threatened to impose a 5% tariff on all goods from Mexico, effective June 10. The proposal is the latest in White House efforts to reduce illegal immigration from Mexico.

POLITICO Pro reporters are constantly on call for fast-moving moments like this, and their ability to act quickly and respond with helpful analysis was on display last night after the President’s tweets.

At 8:28 PM, just under an hour after the President’s tweet, Pro subscribers received a breaking news alert. And this article quickly followed at 8:41 PM, giving subscribers more context on the impact of the announcement.

By 10:47 PM the DataPoint reporting team released a comprehensive visualization of state goods imported from Mexico. By 5 AM this morning, our trade team released a follow-up article covering what to expect next from Trump, which was delivered on the Pro platform and in time for our morning newsletters.
