President Donald Trump, speaking at an event following Foxconn’s groundbreaking in Mount Pleasant, warned Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson to not “get cute with us” and to continue building motorcycles in the United States.
“Harley-Davidson, please build those beautiful motorcycles in the USA, please. O.K.?” Trump said yesterday. “Don’t get cute with us. Don’t get cute.”
Trump over the last several days has been knocking Harley-Davidson over its plans to offshore some production to skirt retaliatory tariffs from the European Union in response to Trump’s tariffs on foreign aluminum, steel and other products.
He also repeated comments he made over Twitter that customers won’t be happy with Harley-Davidson’s offshoring plans.
“Build them in the USA,” Trump said. “Your customers won’t be happy if you don’t. I’ll tell you that.” Read the full story here.
