Harley-Davidson Officials Meeting with White House Thursday
Members of Harley-Davidson are meeting with the White House on Thursday to discuss how US manufacturing can unify the country. The company confirmed the visit in a tweet on Wednesday.
The news comes just days after it was believed President Trump was coming to Milwaukee to visit the Harley-Davidson factory but then that trip was cancelled. According to a White House administration official, Harley Davidson was not comfortable hosting President Trump amid planned protests.
Harley-Davidson sent CBS 58 this statement which said they did not have a confirmed visit with President Trump:
You may have read in the news that President Trump was planning to visit Wisconsin this week. There was much speculation as to where he would visit. We want you to know that we did not have a confirmed or scheduled visit with the president this week at any of our facilities. We are proud to have hosted presidential visits at our facilities. Three of the last five presidents -- Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton – have visited us at our facilities. These visits are a testament to the pride and passion of our employees and their great work building Harley-Davidson motorcycles. We look forward to meeting the president and hosting him in the future.
