Donald Trump is not happy with Harley-Davidson after the company announced it would be moving production of some of its motorcycles from the United States.
The US President was so upset with the American firm he decided to dedicate a whole Twitter rant to it.
He wrote: ‘Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag.
‘I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the E.U., which has hurt us badly on trade, down $151 Billion. Taxes just a Harley excuse – be patient! #MAGA.’
The US company decided to move production of motorcycles headed for Europe from the US after the European Union began rolling out tariffs on American imports.
The move was a retaliation over duties Mr Trump imposed on steel and aluminium from Europe.
Mr Trump was particularly heartbroken over Harley-Davidson because he held it up as an example of a firm he could help by bringing down trade barriers.
But the firm defended its actions after it emerged it could incur and extra $2,200 dollars (£1,658) per motorcycle if it kept exporting from the US to Europe.
Harley-Davidson said in a statement: ‘Harley-Davidson maintains a strong commitment to US-based manufacturing which is valued by riders globally.
‘Increasing international production to alleviate the EU tariff burden is not the company’s preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the EU and maintain a viable business in Europe. Europe is a critical market for Harley-Davidson.’
It reassured customers it would not raise prices in the short term as a result of the new tariffs.
The new international production facilities could take at least nine to 18 months to be completed.
