U.S. President Donald Trump hasn’t stopped blasting Harley-Davidson on social media.
The Milwaukee motorcycle manufacturer announced recently it would be shifting some operations overseas as a result of retaliatory EU tariffs against U.S. duties. The President of the United States is obviously troubled by this decision.
Trump took it to social media and said Tuesday that his administration is talking with other, foreign motorcycle manufacturers about their transfer to the U.S.
Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S. Harley customers are not happy with their move – sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!

This isn’t the first time Trump is trashing Harley-Davidson on social media. First, he said the company would be “taxed like never before” if they go through with the plan of moving production overseas. He also said that Harley-Davidson is using the tariff situation as an excuse.
Then, last Wednesday, he spoke about his disappointment in the iconic motorcycle maker:
Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success. I’ve done so much for you, and then this. Other companies are coming back where they belong! We won’t forget, and neither will your customers or your now very HAPPY competitors!

Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson claims that all of their motorcycles sold in the U.S. are made in the U.S.
