President Trump recently scolded Harley-Davidson on Twitter after the company announced it would be moving one of its plants overseas.
In a series of tweets Tuesday, the President said earlier this year Harley-Davidson said it would move its Kansas City plant to Thailand. This was before the tariffs were announced. President Trump blasted the company for using the tariffs as an excuse.
Early this year Harley-Davidson said they would move much of their plant operations in Kansas City to Thailand. That was long before Tariffs were announced. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse. Shows how unbalanced & unfair trade is, but we will fix it.....
He went further, saying he is going to fix the unbalanced and unfair trade system, while getting other countries to lift their barriers — something that has hurt U.S. workers for so long.
The president also said he chided Harley-Davidson about high tariffs when he had them over at the White House, adding, the motorcycle giant knows it won’t be able to sell back into the U.S. without paying a big tax.

The tweets come as other companies are looking at ways to ease the hurt from the trade tariffs.
