Harley-Davidson Inc is enduring a third day of attacks on Twitter by Donald Trump, with the president again misconstruing the iconic United States motorcycle maker's business. The company sold 39,773 motorcycles in Europe last year and if they didn't shift production, they would lose $45 (€38.6) million this year due to the increased tariffs.

"In this administration, our allegiance will be to the American workers and to American businesses, like Harley-Davidson, that were very strong in the 1980s and I remember this - you were victims of trading abuse - big trading abuse, where they were dumping all sorts of competitors all over the place", Trump said.

Trump has also threatened Harley-Davidson with a "big tax" on bikes which are manufactured overseas and then imported into the US. "Other companies are coming back where they belong!"

"Earlier this year, Harley-Davidson said they would move much of their plant operations in Kansas City to Thailand". The Aura will be gone and they will be taxed like never before!

"Harley-Davidson motorcycles sold in the US will continue to be made in the US", Pflughoeft said. "I don't like that, because I've been very good with Harley-Davidson", Trump said. The EU's hike in tariffs was introduced as a retaliatory move in reply to Trump's price hike on imported aluminium and steel into the US. That was long before Tariffs were announced.

FDA approves first marijuana-based drug
Shinnar said he will welcome approval of a medicine that had undergone stringent FDA review for safety and effectiveness. The FDA's first approval of a cannabis-derived compound happened thanks to sound science, and it must proceed that way.

Trump has also used Harley-Davidson as an example of a company that would benefit from his policies.

According to Harley-Davidson, the move "is not the company's preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the European Union and maintain a viable business in Europe". The company has said ramping up production overseas could take at least nine to 18 months.

S&P says it will resolve the credit watch after Harley's second-quarter earnings. Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient!

"When I had Harley-Davidson officials over to the White House, I chided them about tariffs in other countries, like India, being too high".

Trump first responded angrily to the Harley announcement on Monday, saying he has supported the 115-year-old manufacturer and was surprised by its plans, which he described as waving the "White Flag".
