President Donald Trump threw a jab at Harley-Davidson on Tuesday over the motorcycle manufacturer’s decision to move some of its operations overseas.
Trump had this to say about the Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based company in a tweet:
Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S. Harley customers are not happy with their move – sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!

It’s unclear which other motorcycle manufacturers Trump was referring to.
Last month, Harley-Davidson announced that it would shift some of its operations to other countries because of the tariffs placed on some U.S.-made goods by the European Union. That move came in response to tariffs the Trump administration has placed on steel and aluminum imports as the White House tries to even the global trading playing field.
Trump urged Harley to rethink its decision, but the company is committed to the money-saving tactic.
