President Trump on Sunday claimed that "a National Holiday would be immediately declared" if former President Barack Obama made the deals on immigration and the economy that he has.

"If President Obama made the deals that I have made, both at the Border and for the Economy, the Corrupt Media would be hailing them as Incredible, & a National Holiday would be immediately declared," Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. "With me, despite our record setting Economy and all that I have done, no credit!"

Trump in a series of tweets on Sunday morning touted his border security deal with Mexico, which averted tariffs on the U.S.'s southern neighbor, while knocking the media for its coverage of the agreement.

Trump on Friday struck a deal with Mexico that called for the U.S. to drop plans to impose sweeping tariffs on the country in exchange for Mexico's promise to crack down on illegal migration.

The New York Times reported Saturday that a majority of the deal was previously agreed upon between the two sides, prompting Trump to lash out against the news outlet on Sunday, once again calling it, along with CNN, the "Enemy of the People!"
