Trumped revved up over Harley Davidson

Harley, stung by tariffs, shifts some production overseas

Today, Trump followed up with another swing at Harley-Davidson.

He accused India of charging tariffs as high as 100% on imported American products and called for them to be removed. "I was the one that explained to Harley about 100 per cent tax in India. and I got it down to a much lower number. which is, I think, 50 per cent, which is far too much, but they were paying 100 per cent". That was long before Tariffs were announced. But Trump says that's an excuse and threatened the company with a "big tax" if they move their plant. "Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse", Trump said. "And I think the people who ride Harleys aren't happy with Harley-Davidson, and I wouldn't be either". And in response to those European Union tariffs, Harley has said it will move some bike production to Europe since it is a business after all and has to make money somehow. "Shows how unbalanced & unfair trade is, but we will fix it", he tweeted.

The company already produces some parts and bikes overseas, including in India and Thailand, where they would otherwise face high tariffs.

The U.S. and China are also volleying back and forth over tariffs.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted about two earlier decisions Harley made to open the new plant in Thailand and close one in Missouri.

"I've done so much for you, and then this", Trump wrote. "These global facilities exist to support more competitive pricing by eliminating much of the tax and tariff burden imposed on fully assembled Harley-Davidson motorcycles imported into key worldwide markets". "Harley-Davidson said, they wanted to do that (move some manufacturing base overseas)".

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

"It's unfortunate that such a strong Wisconsin company like Harley-Davidson has to bear the brunt of this trade dispute", Sensenbrenner said. If they move, watch, it will be the beginning of the end - they surrendered, they quit!

Meanwhile, in order to intensify its sanctions against Iran, the United States has ruled out any exemption to India and Indian companies from carrying out any transactions with Iran. "I understand that the President is a tough negotiator, but I urge him to consider a more targeted approach that protects American workers and businesses".
