Trump Threatens America’s Favorite Iron - Liberal Resistance

Trump Threatens America’s Favorite Iron

Just in case you missed this particular fracas, Der Drumfter slapped some tariffs on our trading partners, and none other than Harley-Davidson responded by moving some of its critical operations out of the country to avoid the aforesaid tarrifs. And then Trump, characteristically, had a hissy fit and announced that he was going to tax Harley-Davidson into the ground. He also predicted (threatened?) that the company would collapse.

So, let’s recap, shall we? An America-first, Business-centric, free enterprise “libertarian” president just announced that he would use the awesome power of his political office to deform the market and put an American company out of business.

There seems to be a bit of a contradiction there.

But here’s another little issue. Harley-Davidson bikes are favorites of all sorts of people…including the Hell’s Angels.

Wonder if Trump remembered that before he started tweeting.
