Trump Praises Bikers Planning Boycott Of Harley-Davidson: ‘Great!’

US President Donald Trump endorsed calls Sunday, August 12, for a boycott of tariff-hit Harley-Davidson over its plans to move production of its iconic American motorcycles out of the country.

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. A really bad move! "Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors", he wrote.

He has already attacked the company's plans, threatening it with higher taxes.

Harley-Davidson said that it would manufacture its motorcycles meant for the worldwide market in overseas factories, saying tariffs on its motorcycles rose from 6 percent to 31 percent as a result of the trade dispute.

In January, Harley-Davidson announced it would close its Kansas City, Missouri assembly plant and consolidate jobs in York, Pennsylvania.

USA motorcycle sales peaked at more than 1.1 million in 2005 but then plummeted during the recession.

Manufacturing for Harley-Davidson's motorcycles for US customers are expected to remain in the United States.
