Lindsey Graham appears on CNN (screen grab)

Appearing with CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation" on Sunday morning, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told viewers they will start to see price increases in products coming from China -- despite Donald Trump saying the Chinese will absorb the costs of his tariffs -- and that they need to suck it up and "accept the pain."


As Graham explained it, "The Democrats for years have been claiming that China should be stood up to. Now Trump is, and we just got to accept the pain that comes with standing up to China. How do you get China to change without creating some pain on them and us? I don’t know.”

He then added, "Consumer prices on commodities are going to go up” as a result of tariffs on Chinese goods,and the those increases will be seen in stores like Walmart.

Graham's comments about consumer "pain" were not received very well on Twitter.
