Harley-Davidson Inc is enduring a third day of attacks on Twitter by Donald Trump, with the president again misconstruing the iconic U.S. motorcycle maker's business.
Wednesday he tweeted: "Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success".
Trump has also threatened Harley-Davidson with a "big tax" on bikes which are manufactured overseas and then imported into the US.
He accused India of charging tariffs as high as 100% on imported American products and called for them to be removed.
Trump says on Twitter, "We won't forget, and neither will your customers or your now very HAPPY competitors!"
Harley-Davidson said Monday it was moving production of motorcycles sold in Europe from USA factories to facilities overseas because of retaliatory tariffs it faces in an escalating trade dispute between involving Trump's administration and the European Union. The company doesn't have specific information on where production for the European Union will take place, he said.
European Union officials, meanwhile, suggested Trump had only himself to blame for the falling-out with a company he had previously hailed as "a true American icon".
Trump recently imposed steep tariffs on aluminum and steel imported from Canada, Mexico and Europe in his bid to level the trade playing field and reduce trade deficits between the USA and its trade partners.
