After tariffs imposed by President Trump and retaliatory tariff's from other nations have led Harley-Davidson to move some of its operations overseas, and after a threat the President made to increase taxes on the Milwaukee-based company, the President is extending his campaign to attempt to convince Harley-Davidson to keep all its operations here.
His latest tweet on Wednesday included "I've done so much for you, and then this...we won't forget, and neither will your customers ro your now very HAPPY competitors!"
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!

Harley-Davidson has had no immediate response to President Trump's words, as they did not have when he tweeted that "the Aura will be gone and they will be taxed like never before."
But Harley-Davidson had warned last year against responding to foreign trade barriers with higher American tariffs, saying the levies could negatively impact sales.
