‘Mucho Sad’: Lindsey Graham tweets Trump’s wall tax would ‘drive up costs of Corona, tequila’

Published

on

On Thursday, President Donald Trump proposed a tariff plan to pay for his border wall with Mexico. After Mexican President Peña Nieto insisted they would not pay for Trump’s wall, the U.S. president said instead that he would slap a 20 percent tax on all imports from Mexico to pay for the wall.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham responded to that idea in a set of tweets, suggesting that a tax on imports would not be the wisest move. In his first tweet, the Senator wrote, “Border security yes, tariffs no. Mexico is 3rd largest trading partner. Any tariff we can levy they can levy. Huge barrier to econ growth.”

He then followed up with, “Simply put, any policy proposal which drives up costs of Corona, tequila, or margaritas is a big-time bad idea. Mucho Sad.”

The news comes one day after Trump signed an executive order to re-start construction of the wall.

Hope Hicks told Congress that Trump was ‘serious’ about accepting foreign help: Jerry Nadler

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks told Congress on Wednesday that President Donald Trump really does welcome foreign assistance to help him win elections, according to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

In a statement released Thursday, Nadler revealed that "Ms. Hicks made clear that she understood the President to be serious when he said that he would accept foreign interference in our elections" and "she also made clear that even she knew that such foreign assistance should be rejected and reported to the FBI."

Nadler then put Hicks's testimony in the broader context of Trump telling ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last week that he would welcome the help of a foreign government who came to him and offered him dirt on a political opponent.
