Trump backs boycott of Harley-Davidson in steel tariff dispute

MY18 Key Features. FLHXS

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

In response, Mr. Trump has criticized Harley-Davidson, calling for higher, targeted taxes and threatening to lure foreign producers to the United States to increase competition. Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors.

The comment came as part of The Times" wider look at the reaction of pro-Trump motorcyclists to President TrumpDonald John TrumpKavanaugh once said president would likely have to testify before grand jury if subpoenaed: report Twitter says InfoWars account will remain online despite violating its rules Melania Trump family immigration lawyer praises so-called "chain migration' MORE's feud with Harley-Davidson.

A Harley-Davidson spokesman didn't immediately respond to a voice mail and email seeking comment.

Harley has forecast that the European Union tariffs would cost the company about $30 million to $45 million (35.25 million pounds) for the remainder of 2018 and $90 million to $100 million on a full-year basis.

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

The relationship flipped after Harley announced plans earlier this summer to shift production of bikes destined for Europe to overseas facilities.

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.

Gary Rathbun rumbled into South Dakota to attend the United States' pre-eminent gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts atop his Harley-Davidson, a 2009 Ultra Classic that brought him 800 miles from Idaho.
