Trump warns Harley-Davidson: 'We won't forget'

President Donald Trump is denying that his trade policy is responsible for Harley-Davidson's decision to some motorcycle production overseas.

It follows a proposed plan by Harley-Davidson to move some of its production overseas.

Renacci is a former owner of Harley-Davidson dealerships, but he didn't hold back when calling out the company for using the "excuse" of tariffs to start making some motorcycles overseas.

It was a stark contrast from February 2017, when Harley-Davidson executives visited Trump at the White House, even participating in a photo-op with Trump.

"I've done so much for you, and then this", Trump wrote.

The attacks came after Harley-Davidson announced that it would shift some production out of the United States due to Trump's trade battles. Its last quarter sales fell by 12 percent in the US but grew by about 7 percent in multiple continents, including Europe.

"These worldwide facilities exist to support more competitive pricing by eliminating much of the tax and tariff burden imposed on fully assembled Harley-Davidson motorcycles imported into key global markets". Trump said in one of several tweets Tuesday morning about Harley-Davidson.

"Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag". Those tariffs are a retaliation for trade penalties imposed by the Trump administration.

The fight is a stunning reversal for a company that Trump once called "a true American icon".

"I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the European Union, which has hurt us badly on trade, down $151 Billion".

In January, Harley-Davidson said it would close a plant in Kansas City, Missouri, due to a sharp drop in US demand for its motorcycles, but said it would consolidate work done there into its plant in York, Pennsylvania. If they move, watch, it will be the beginning of the end - they surrendered, they quit!

Asked if Trump still feels that tariffs are the best option, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Monday that "the European Union is attempting to punish US workers with unfair and discriminatory trade policies, and President Trump will continue to push for free, fair and reciprocal trade in hopes that the EU will join is in that". "Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse", he said. Their employees and customers are already very angry with them. "And it was like they couldn't leave the room fast enough", he said recollecting his conversation with G-7 leaders in Canada recently. "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into US without paying a big tax!" "Harley must know that they won't be able to sell back into US without paying a big tax!"
