Trump is not relenting in his tirade against Harley Davidson. Today he’s attacking them again, telling them they shouldn’t take any production overseas:
Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success. I’ve done so much for you, and then this. Other companies are coming back where they belong! We won’t forget, and neither will your customers or your now very HAPPY competitors!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2018
Just look at this: “I’ve done so much for you, and then this.” “We won’t forget…”
Trump is making this about loyalty to HIM, as if Harley Davidson is his girlfriend and by moving some production overseas she’ll be cheating on him. It’s ridiculous on its face, especially when you consider that is all Trump’s fault in the first place. Trump is the one who started this trade war with our allies and now he’s trying to punish Harley Davidson for daring to try and sidestep these tariffs.
Here’s a few responses from Twitter to this ridiculousness:
If Harley really loved him, it’d be willing to go broke to prove it https://t.co/7V8H7lPUs8— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) June 27, 2018

It's probably time for Harley-Davidson to block President Jilted Boyfriendhttps://t.co/FOdclp24NY— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) June 27, 2018
Honestly not sure I can handle Emo Trump. I think it’s the breaking point. https://t.co/7V8H7lPUs8— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) June 27, 2018
Anyone get the sense that the trade war isn't going as planned? https://t.co/drayqkLxBT— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) June 27, 2018
This is truly the side of Trump I dislike the most. Congress needs to step up and rein him in on trade. Seriously!
