(WIS) - South Carolina's business community wants Senator Lindsey Graham to help with recently imposed tariffs.

The state chamber of commerce president Ted Pitts sent a letter to Senator Graham on Tuesday to let the Trump administration know that jobs are at risk.

Last week, a 25% tariff was imposed on Chinese imports and China quickly retaliated with its own tariffs.

BMW, which employs 10,000 people in its South Carolina plant, says it would raise prices on SUVs exported to China because of those tariffs. On Wednesday, we learned that more tariffs on Chinese imports could be coming from DC.

Items include things like burglar alarms and mackerel.
