AUSTIN, Texas – President Trump is being critical of Harley Davidson on social media after the company's decision to move some of its production overseas.
In a tweet Tuesday morning the president said, “Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my administration is working with other motor cycle companies who want to move into the U.S.”
The decision has impacted Harley Davidson customers sales are down 7 percent in 2017.
The Milwaukee-based company said the move overseas comes because it's responding to retaliatory tariffs being imposed on American exports by the European Union.
They claim the tariffs on motorcycles exported from the U.S. cost an average of more $2,000 per bike.
