Earlier this morning, President Trump speaks on tariffs and Harley Davidson with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, Sunday Morning Futures.
President Trump drops a truth bomb on Harley Davidson that let’s American’s know that Harley had their plans BEFORE the tariffs.
The classic American motorcycle company were planning their move out of the Country far before POTUS began fixing the unfair international trade practices.
Maria asks the hard hitting question, “You called out Harley Davidson. And you’ve been calling out Harley Davidson.”
POTUS replies, “It’s true. I don’t like that they’re leaving.” Then in hopeful prophecy he says, “Ahhh…they’re not leaving.”
Maria states, “But Harley Davidson is saying ‘we’re going to send some production overseas because we can’t deal with some of the retaliatory tariffs out of Europe’. And that’s because of our tariffs.” POTUS, in a soft voice says, “Nah.”
Maria asks, “Should you be calling out specific companies? You’re the President!”
And in a soft reply he says, “Yes. Yes I should.”
He then continues picking up the tempo and explains, “Look. I devoted a lot of time to Harley Davidson. I treated them good. I gotta tell ya, everybody that ever bought a Harley Davidson voted for Trump. I don’t know if you know that. They call them Bikers for Trump.”
As it turns out, Bikers For Trump – Virginia chapter, showed up yesterday at the Red Hen in solidarity for President Trump and Sarah Sanders, spearheaded by Senate seat hopeful Corey Alan Stewart (R-VA). Click here to read more on the successful Bikers For Trump demonstration at The Red Hen.
The interview continues and POTUS then tells Maria that the people who buy Harley motorcycles love that they are built in America and they have “pride in America.”
Then Pres Trump lays out the bottom line of what Harley Davidson did, he says, “Now. We just proposed this a few days ago. They made this deal at the beginning of the year. Long before they ever heard the word tariff.”
Pres Trump explains, “And I didn’t think they should do it. I think that Harley is an American bike. It’s an American motorcycle and they should build them in this country.”
DJT then continues as Maria agrees with him, “I think the people who buy Harley Davidson, they don’t want it built in another Country. They don’t wan’t Harley Davidson getting cute to make two dollars more.”
