'Accept the pain' of the U.S.-China trade war.

Sen. Lindsey Graham acknowledged on Sunday that Americans would have to “accept the pain” caused by the Trump administration’s trade war with China, but argued the U.S. maintains the advantage.

“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.”

Lindsay has been drinking the maga koolaid for a long time now.

Sad to see how far he has fallen from actually being respectable. Like this: https://youtu.be/2bkDykGhM8c

Maga koolaid is quite intoxicating for the weak minded

Start by reading multiple sources of information and acknowledging that centrist sources of information aren't leftist

There is no Trump trade war with China. China was putting tariffs and boycotts on our goods long before we were putting them on theirs.

Trump is merely the first President to fight back on equal terms. At last.

Yeah - you could say there was no trade war when we just gave them what they wanted for decades. Trump is at least trying to put us on equal footing.

I referenced a link from last week that said we lost an estimated 625,000 jobs because of China's unfair trade practices between 2001-2008.

I think Graham is accurate on this one.

Do away with China, bring jobs back. Then raise minimum wage to $15 and hour. The Dollar Tree will become the Five Dollar Tree.
