Moving the production global will allow Harley-Davidson to avoid tariffs the European Union imposed in retaliation for Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs.
The Milwaukee-based company said on Monday it will move production of motorcycles shipped to the European Union from the United States to its global facilities and forecast that the trading bloc's tariffs - introduced as a counter to Trump's tariffs on some EU-produced metals - would cost the company $90 million to $100 million a year. Harley-Davidson has denied a link between Kansas City and Thailand.
It was a stark contrast from February 2017, when Harley-Davidson executives visited Trump at the White House, even participating in a photo-op with Trump. He added: "The Aura will be gone and they will be taxed like never before!"
"Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success", Mr Trump said in the tweet on Wednesday. The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, has been flooded by online criticism from backers of Trump who are angry that its owner refused service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, last weekend.
On March 9, Trump had imposed heavy tariffs on imported steel and aluminium items, leading to fears of a global trade war. 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.
"What I would like to do and what I offered at the G7, you remember, I said let's drop all tariffs and all barriers", he said.
