WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump is denying that his trade policy is responsible for Harley-Davidson’s decision to shift some motorcycle production overseas.
The company said that it’s doing so because of tariffs that it’s facing in a trade dispute between the U.S. and the European Union. But Trump called that an excuse.READ MORE: Texas Experiencing Another COVID-19 Surge

“That was long before Tariffs were announced. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse,” Trump said on Twitter. “Shows how unbalanced & unfair trade is, but we will fix it.”
