But on Monday, the company said the president's trade approach had put its business at a disadvantage, as the European Union hit Harley-Davidson with tariffs of 31 percent on every motorcycle exported to Europe in retaliation for Trump's metal tariffs.

In a series of caustic early-morning tweets Trump dismissed any notion that his policies were responsible for Harley-Davidson's move. The retaliatory tariffs imposed by the European Union are in response to President Trump's trade measures, deciding to increase import duties of steel and aluminium imports. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse. "We are getting other countries to reduce and eliminate tariffs and trade barriers that have been unfairly used for years against our farmers, workers and companies".

Harley-Davidson executives met with Trump at the White House previous year after Trump cancelled a visit to the company's headquarters in Milwaukee because protests had been planned.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, whose district is home to some of Harley-Davidson's facilities, also pointed to the company as an American firm that would be a victor from tax reform.
Trump enjoyed the support of a group called "Bikers for Trump" in his 2016 presidential campaign and he invited Harley-Davidson representatives to the White House in February 2017 shortly after he took office, greeting them with the words "Made in America, Harley-Davidson".
