MILWAUKEE -- President Trump tweeting out his support for a boycott of Milwaukee motorcycle maker Harley Davidson.
Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors. A really bad move! U.S. will soon have a level playing field, or better.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2018
This in response to Harley announcing it's plan earlier this year to move production of motorcycles for the European Union overseas to avoid tariffs on aluminum and steel.
Trump has threatened to lure foreign motorcycle producers to the United States to increase competition for Harley.
Trump met with a group of bikers that support his stance, posing for pictures at his golf resort in New Jersey.
Harley Davidson has declined to comment on the President's remarks.
