President Trump spoke with Harley Davidson CEO Matthew Levatich, executives, as well as steelworkers and machinists from the manufacturing heavyweight at the White House.
The purpose of the meeting on Thursday with the American motorcycle maker was to uphold his campaign promises and restore lost manufacturing jobs to the U.S.
When the bikers first arrived, President Trump and Vice President Pence walked outside to meet them and inspect the cycles.
Trump said, “We want to make it easier for business to create more jobs and more factories to be made in the U.S., and you’re a great example of that.” He added, “We have to make America the best country on Earth to do business, and that is what we are doing.”
He called them “one of the true American icon” and praised them for how their motorcycles have “carried some of the American service members in the war and take care of our police officers.”
The president discussed renegotiating NAFTA and other trade deals, and continuing to work with our allies to ensure we are establishing fair trade agreements and not being taken advantage of, which had been the case with former administrations.
“This Administration and our allegiance will be to the American workers and to the American businesses, like Harley Davidson,” said Trump. “We are going to be competitive with anyone in the world.”
