Looks like Lindsey Graham is singing a different tune about the tariffs behind Trump’s back. Trump is winning the Trade War but Lindsey is Trying to make it look worse. Trump is doing everything he can to make sure that Americans do not suffer but irresponsible statements like this does not help the President.

“The Democrats for years have been claiming that China should be stood up to. Now, Trump is, and we’ve just got to accept the pain that comes with standing up to China,” the South Carolina Republican said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “How do you get China to change without creating some pain on them and us? I don’t know.”

Still, Graham asserted the Trump administration has the ability to pressure China, directing his comments toward the president.

“Listen, you got more bullets than they do,” Graham said. “They sell us a lot more stuff than we sell them. … The goal is to get them to change their behavior.

“Until they feel the pain,” he said, “they’re not going to stop.”

How much pain might his home state of South Carolina face?

“Some,” Graham acknowledged. “Consumer prices on commodities are going to go up. We’re now that part in the trade war where you feel price increases at Walmart.”
