The plunge followed after President Trump tweeted his support in June for a boycott against Harley-Davidson after the company announced it would move some of its production overseas to avoid new tariffs imposed by the European Union.
Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors. A really bad move! U.S. will soon have a level playing field, or better.
