On Sunday, Trump tweeted that “many” Harley-Davidson owners will boycott the company if it shifts production of the iconic American motorcycles to other countries.
“Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors. A really bad move! US will soon have a level playing field, or better,” Trump said in a Twitter post.
