Trump To Help Harley-Davidson Competitors After Overseas Production Move

Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

President Donald Trump’s administration will assist motorcycle companies who want to do business in the United States after the Harley-Davidson moved a portion of its production overseas.

Trump has railed against Harley-Davidson since its recent announcement that it would be moving a portion of its production overseas as a result of retaliatory tariffs from the EU. The president has accused the company of lying about its motives and chastised it for its alleged betrayal of the United States.

The move “is not the company’s preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the EU and maintain a viable business in Europe,” they said in a statement.

“We want to tell — by the way — Harley-Davidson, please build those beautiful motorcycles in the USA, please. OK? Don’t get cute with us. Don’t get cute. They don’t realize the taxes are coming way down,” Trump told an audience at a recent rally. “Build them in the USA. Your customers won’t be happy if you don’t. I’ll tell you that.”
