President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is "more likely" than not to impose a new 5% tariff on imported products from Mexico next week.

Trump offered his assessment at a London news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, He made his comments even as U.S. and Mexican officials were in Washington talking about tariffs and the surge of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico to reach the United States.

"Mexico should step up and stop this invasion into our country," Trump said, contending that "millions and millions" of undocumented migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are entering the U.S. to escape poverty and violence in their homelands.

"I think Mexico will step up and do what they need to," Trump said.

 "I want to see security at our border and great trade.

We are going to see if we can do something, but I think it's more likely the tariffs go on, and we will probably be talking during the time that the tariffs are on."

Trump has threatened to increase the tariffs monthly in 5% increments if the migration is not curbed.
