CNN CLAIM: Harley Davidson Dumps Trump Visit Fearing Protests


Harley-Davidson has built its reputation as being the motorcycle for the rough-and-tumble rider — a favorite of bikers across the country.

In general, bikers from across the country supported Trump throughout his campaign, many times offering protective services at Trump rallies.  

But if a CNN report is true (yes, we know what you’re thinking), the motorcycle company is showing its softer side by canceling a preplanned visit from President Trump.

The company has canceled a visit that President Trump had planned because “Harley Davidson felt ‘uncomfortable’ about planned protests over Trump’s executive order on travel bans,” according to a CNN report.

Trump was scheduled to go to the Milwaukee factory on Thursday, where he was slated to sign executive orders pertaining to American manufacturing.

White House representatives were already at the factory setting up for the Thursday visit.

Harley-Davidson has gone so far as to deny the visit was even planned, saying in a statement, “[We] don’t have, nor did we have, a scheduled visit from the president this week at any of our facilities.”

The company did say they are “looking forward to hosting the president in the future.”

The White House has confirmed that Trump will not be visiting the Harley-Davidson plant in Milwaukee.

Former presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush have visited the plant during their presidencies.

Maripat Blankenheim, director of Harley-Davidson’s corporate communications, said, “These visits are a testament to the pride and passion of our employees and their great work building Harley-Davidson motorcycles.”
