Here’s what you need to know about President Trump’s moves to impose import penalties on Mexico:

• In a series of tweets, Trump on Friday defended his decision to impose tariffs on Mexico to try to stop a surge of migrants across the border.

• Mexico’s foreign minister rushed to Washington to try to broker a diplomatic solution — but said on Twitter that the U.S. move is “unfair and does not make economic sense.”

• Global markets opened down Friday, especially automobile stocks.

• Lawmakers and Trump’s top economic advisers are urging Trump to exercise caution and business groups are warning of price increases on consumer goods.
