Trump to Harley-Davidson: 'We won’t forget, and neither will your customers'

Harley’s business will be hit if they move production: Trump

The problem with Trump's tweet is that, while Harley makes a majority of its motorcycles at several locations in the USA, it's had several overseas manufacturing sites for years. The EU raised an existing tariff it had on the company's motorcycles by nearly five times in retaliation for the U.S.' tariffs on EU aluminum and steel. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into US without paying a big tax!"

Those tariffs came as a result of Trump's decision to impose steep duties on steel and aluminum imports Europe and elsewhere last month.

"Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson said they would move much of their plant operations in Kansas City to Thailand". Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient! "And I think the people who ride Harleys aren't happy with Harley-Davidson, and I wouldn't be either". He incorrectly said Harley was moving production to Asia from the United States, when in fact the expansion in Thailand was unrelated to the closing in Missouri.

"We see tremendous opportunity, particularly in Southeast Asia and the investment in the plant in Thailand to get around the egregious tariffs and duties, is a part of accessing a very important market", Harley-Davidson chief executive Matthew Levatich said in late April 24. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into US without paying a big tax!"

"I've done so much for you, and then this", Trump wrote. "Trump added. ".A Harley-Davidson should never be built in another country-never!

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 York, Pennsylvania. The company doesn't have specific information on where production for the European Union will take place, he said.

The rift is particularly notable because Harley-Davidson has traditionally, had strong support within the GOP. Their employees and customers are already very angry at them. If they move, watch it, it will be the beginning of the end. "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". "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".
