‘Harley-Davidson will take big hit’


Washington, July 2: US President Donald Trump has warned that Harley-Davidson is going to take “a big hit” for moving some of its motorcycle production overseas. Trump told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that he did not agree with the company’s decision to shift away from domestic production, renewing his claims that the motorcycle manufacturer shouldn’t “get cute”. “Everybody who ever bought a Harley-Davidson voted for Trump … and they are very unhappy about it,” the President said. “I think they’re going to take a big hit… the people that are buying Harley-Davidson, they don’t want it built in another country.” The Wisconsin-based Harley-Davidson said last week that it was moving some of its production overseas to avoid tariffs on bikes sold in the EU. Trump’s decision to levy tariffs on steel and aluminium from the EU and other countries triggered the move. (IANS)
