Trump invites other bike makers to US in Harley snub

DONALD TRUMP has revealed that his administration is considering other motorcycle companies that want to move to the U.S. following Harley-Davidson's announcement that it was moving some assembly overseas.

Harley-Davidson last week announced that it will move production of motorcycles sold in Europe to facilities outside the U.S. due to EU tariffs imposed to retaliate for tariffs Trump imposed on a selection of EU products.

Of course, this seriously pissed Mr President off, and he tweeted Tuesday that Harley-Davidson customers weren't happy either with the Milwaukee-based company's announcement. He also notes that sales were down 7 percent in 2017, but a sales drop last year cannot be attributed to Harley-Davidson's announcement last week.

According to a report by Business Insider, the President is now looking to foster foreign manufacturers in the US, however he didn't name which. The White House had no immediate comment, either.
