    President Donald Trump on May 30 issued a new threat to slap tariffs of as much as 25% on goods from Mexico, an escalation in his trade war that would raise the prices Americans pay for avocados and tequila. Autos are by far the largest category of Mexican-made products sold in the U.S., and top manufacturers from Audi AG to Volkswagen AG produce vehicles in the country. At the same time, Mexico also is a big supplier of fruit and drinks, and Trump’s latest volley may, therefore, mean less joy in Margaritaville this summer.
