Trump Threatens To Hit Harley-Davidson With Taxes If It Moves Overseas

Harley-Davidson To Shift Production Overseas To Offset EU Tariffs

Trump revs up attacks on Harley-Davidson over production move

"Harley-Davidson motorcycles sold in the US will continue to be made in the US", Pflughoeft said. The President went on to tell Harley-Davidson that, despite the proposed tariffs raising the price of every raw material that goes into a Harley, that the Motor Company would not be affected by them.

Harley-Davidson did not immediately respond to request for comment, but said the move overseas was to avoid European Union tariffs, not to sell in the USA market. He added: "I've done so much for you, and then this".

Last year, Harley-Davidson announced it would build a plant in Thailand after Trump pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, which would have abolished tariffs on their motorcycles across 40 percent of the world's economy. Its last quarter sales fell by 12 percent in the USA but grew by about 7 percent in multiple continents, including Europe.

"A Harley-Davidson should never be built in another country-never!" he said on Twitter. Trump himself once said, "Harley-Davidson is a true American icon, one of the greats".

"It's unfortunate that such a strong Wisconsin company like Harley-Davidson has to bear the brunt of this trade dispute", Sensenbrenner said.

For Argentina fans in Red Square, their hope is that some of the other players can step up and take on some of the responsibility. Without the five-time Ballon d'Or victor , though, it is highly unlikely Argentina would even have qualified.

Last week, India announced higher duties on several goods imported from the USA, in retaliation to Trump imposing hefty tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. If they move, watch it, it will be the beginning of the end.

"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". Mr. Trump knows nothing about economics and even less about trade.

Meanwhile, in order to intensify its sanctions against Iran, the USA has ruled out any exemption to India and Indian companies from carrying out any transactions with Iran. "Now they are trying to use the tariffs to excuse and deflect from that decision". Trump tweeted. "Their employees and customers are already very angry at them".

That statement drew criticism from Eurasia Group president Ian Bremmer, who said on Twitter, "If the Germans started saying this about BMWs or the Japanese about Toyotas, that's a whole lot of Americans out of work".

Harley-Davidson has denied a link between Kansas City and Thailand. "Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient!"
