Donald Trump says Harley-Davidson should stay '100 percent in America'

Trump Harley-Davidson

Trump has defended it by arguing that this is in retaliation to the imbalance of trade that the United States has with major trading partners including China, the European Union and India. It warned that Indian companies would be subjected to sanctions if they continue to do business with Iran.

In January, Harley-Davidson said it would close a plant in Kansas City, Missouri, due to a sharp drop in USA demand for its motorcycles, but said it would consolidate work done there into its plant in Pennsylvania.

Local US media reported in May that a labour union for Harley-Davidson suggested some Kansas City jobs would move to Thailand - a move the company denied. S&P warned in January it was anxious about Harley-Davidson's sales declines.

"When I had Harley-Davidson officials over to the White House, I chided them about tariffs in other countries, like India, being too high. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse", he said.

Trump says he's getting other countries to reduce and eliminate tariffs and trade barriers, and open up closed markets.

"Trump added. ".A Harley-Davidson should never be built in another country-never! But company spokesman Michael Pflughoeft said it was assessing the potential impact of the production shift on its U.S. facilities.

Mr Trump on the same day dismissed any notion that his policies were responsible for Harley-Davidson's move.

The Supreme Court Isn’t Done With Gerrymandering Yet
Whitford , the justices held unanimously that the plaintiffs had failed to show that their individual votes had been impaired. Some justices in the past have said the courts have no role in the process; it is between voters and their representatives.

"If they move, watch, it will be the beginning of the end - they surrendered, they quit!"

Today, Trump followed up with another swing at Harley-Davidson. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into U.S.without paying a big tax!"

Harley-Davidson executives met with Trump at the White House a year ago after Trump cancelled a visit to the company's headquarters in Milwaukee because protests had been planned.

Those tariffs are a retaliation for trade penalties imposed by the Trump administration. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into USA without paying a big tax!" "We want the tariffs removed", Trump said. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into US without paying a big tax!"

The rift is particularly notable because Harley-Davidson has traditionally, had strong support within the GOP.

He has also complained about the high costs of Boeing's replacements for Air Force One aircraft, urging the federal government to cancel the order.
