Trump slams Harley-Davidson plan to move some U.S. production overseas

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday criticized Harley-Davidson Inc after the company said it would move U.S. production of motorcycles for European Union customers overseas to avoid retaliatory tariffs.

"Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag. I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the E.U.," Trump said in a post on Twitter.

"Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient!" he added
