Trump denies he's to blame for Harley-Davidson decision
President Donald Trump is denying that his trade policy is responsible for Harley-Davidson's decision to some motorcycle production overseas.
The company says it's doing so because of tariffs it's facing in a trade dispute between the U.S. and the European Union. But Trump says that's an excuse.
Trump says in tweets Tuesday that the company had already announced it was closing a Kansas City plant. Union officials have said those jobs are going to Thailand. Harley-Davidson has denied that.
Says Trump: "That was long before Tariffs were announced. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse. Shows how unbalanced & unfair trade is, but we will fix it ...."
Trump says he's getting other countries to reduce and eliminate tariffs and trade barriers, and open up closed markets.
