  • Trump backs boycott of Harley Davidson in steel tariff dispute

U.S. President Donald Trump backed boycotting American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson Inc. on Sunday, the latest salvo in a dispute between the company and Mr. Trump over tariffs on steel. "I think that's too far-fetched an argument and we don't have to make it", Giuliani said.

"Great", the U.S. president said.

Wall Street Journal editorial page assistant editor James Freeman and Washington Examiner commentary writer Emily Jashinsky on Harley-Davidson's decision to move some of its production outside the U.S. "Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors". "Other companies are coming back where they belong!"

In response, Trump has criticized Harley Davidson, calling for higher, targeted taxes and threatening to lure foreign producers to the United States to increase competition. A really bad move!

The Times' Alan Rappeport visited a biker rally in South Dakota and talked to Harley owners, some of whom share the opinion of president Trump, and see Harley-Davidson's move overseas as a betrayal of everything the company stands for.

President Donald Trump is backing calls for a Harley-Davidson boycott amid an ongoing steel tariff dispute. "US will soon have a level playing field, or better", Trump wrote in a Twitter post.

Earlier this year Harley-Davidson said shifting targeted production from the United States to global facilities could take up to 18 months to be completed.

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

"We expect this plan will result in an engaged, expanded Harley-Davidson community with a more diverse rider base, along with industry-leading margins and cash flow", Harley-Davidson CEO Matt Levatich said in a statement in June.
