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

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.
