Trump revs up boycott of Harley-Davidsons

Trump revs up boycott of Harley-Davidsons

President Trump said a planned boycott of iconic American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson for wanting to move some of its operations outside the United States would be "great". "It was American made, and that's why we stood behind them".

In an interview with President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on Sunday, CNN's Jake Tapper sought to get to the bottom of what President Trump did or did not say to fired FBI Director James Comey about the investigation of former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.

That rally occurred on the same day that The New York Times published a story about a biker rally in Sturgis, S.D., where many of those in attendance expressed dismay at Harley-Davidson's decision to move some manufacturing to Europe. A really bad move!

'Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors.

"To address the substantial cost of this tariff burden long-term, Harley-Davidson will be implementing a plan to shift production of motorcycles for European Union destinations from the its worldwide facilities to avoid the tariff burden", the company wrote in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. USA will soon have a level playing field, or better'.

Trump announced earlier this year that significant tariffs would be imposed on aluminum and steel made outside the US, including allies such as the European Union.

Mr Trump met on Saturday with a group of bikers who support him, posing for pictures with about 180 of them at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is on holiday.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence leaves after meeting with Harley Davidson executives at the South Lawn of the White House in Washington U.S., February 2, 2017.
