Trump tweets about Harley-Davidson boycott

Trump: Harley Davidson boycott would be 'great'

President Trump has applauded a boycott on Harley-Davidson after the USA motorcycle maker said it would move some operations outside of the United States to avoid retaliatory tariffs from the European Union. "Great!", Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday. A really bad move!

The Wisconsin-based motorcycle manufacturer announced a plan earlier this year to move production of motorcycles for the European Union from the United States to its overseas facilities to avoid the tariffs imposed by the trading bloc in retaliation for Mr. Trump's duties on steel and aluminum imports.

Trump sent the tweet from his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., where he hosted members of "Bikers for Trump" on Saturday afternoon.

Harley-Davidson has repeatedly declined to comment on Mr Trump's remarks over the course of the dispute.

Dozens of bikers descended on the posh club house, where Trump shook hands, posed for selfies and delivered an enemy-bashing speech to a cheering crowd, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Trump has lashed out more than a half-dozen times against Harley-Davidson. "Other companies are coming back where they belong!" The company is developing a smaller displacement 250cc to 500cc motorcycle for emerging markets in Asia through a partnership with a manufacturer in the region, and will launch its first electric bike in 2019 with more models to follow through 2022, it said.

Trump accused Harley of using the European retaliatory tariffs as "an excuse" for moving manufacturing overseas.

Harley acknowledged it already had been moving some production abroad, but said moving more production overseas was the "only sustainable option" in the face of a trade war. Harley-Davidson said the tariffs would add about $2,200 to the cost of the average bike built in the USA and exported to the trading bloc.
