Trump encourages boycott against Harley-Davidson

(CNN)President Donald Trump said it's "great" that consumers might boycott Harley-Davidson if it moves some motorcycle production overseas.

The President tweeted about the potential boycott on Sunday

"Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great!" Trump wrote. "Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors. A really bad move! U.S. will soon have a level playing field, or better."

Harley-Davidson did not respond to request for comment on Sunday.

Trump's remark came after the President hosted "Bikers for Trump" supporters at his golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey, over the weekend.

Tensions between the administration and Harley-Davidson have brewed for months.

It started when Trump imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports earlier this year in an effort to bolster domestic manufacturing. The European Union responded by pledging to raise tariffs on a list of goods that are imported from the United States, including Harley motorcycles.

American demand for motorcycles has waned while foreign interest has grown. So, that wasn't good news for the Wisconsin-based bike manufacturer.
Harley said it stands to lose as much as $100 million a year, and the company pledged to shift some of its production abroad so that it could avoid the added tariffs on motorcycles sold in the EU.

Curious. The president imposes tariffs that make the company uncompetitive, then wants to boycott them when they make production decisions that allow them to survive.

I remember when Repubs loved Harley Davidson and hated Russia.

Remember: the Russians believed that the best way to damage America was help elect Donald Trump.
