Trump supports Harley boycott if some production shifts overseas

President Trump encourages Harley Davidson owners to boycott motorcycle company

"Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas".

President Donald Trump renewed his war of words with iconic US motorcycle maker Harley Davidson on Sunday, denouncing the company's plan to shift some production overseas and appearing to back consumers that have called for a boycott.

"Great! Most other companies coming to us, including competitors of Harley". "It's just they get you, they gouge you".

"I guarantee you, everybody who ever bought a Harley-Davidson voted for Trump", Trump said in an interview with Fox News. Tammy Baldwin Sunday tweeted that Trump, "can not run our economy with Tweets". "USA will soon have a level playing field, or better", Trump wrote in a Twitter post.
