MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday he expects Mexico and the United States to reach a deal over migration before a deadline set by his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.

Trump says he will impose a tariff on all Mexican goods sold to the United States from June 10 if the Mexican government does not halt a surge in migrants, mostly from Central America, crossing into the United States from Mexico.

“I’m optimistic...that there will be a deal before June 10,” Lopez Obrador told his regular morning news conference.
