Harley-Davidson and Trump Milwaukee Visit

Harley-Davidson is in damage control mode.

What is this about?

Harley cancelled a planned visit from President Trump scheduled for this Thursday.

From CNN:

President Donald Trump will not head to Milwaukee for a previously scheduled visit of a Harley-Davidson factory after the company decided it wasn't comfortable hosting him amid planned protests, an administration official said Tuesday.

Trump had been scheduled to tour the factory Thursday where he also planned to sign executive orders related to American manufacturing.

The visit had not been publicly announced, but White House staffers were already on the ground in Milwaukee setting up for Trump's planned visit to the factory on Thursday.
Harley hasn't screwed up this badly since the Elton John debacle of the 100th anniversary celebration.

We in Wisconsin have seen how crazed the Leftist protesters get. It wasn't long ago when they occupied our Capitol and did a lot of damage.

We've experienced the insanity of the protesters. I can understand why Harley wants to avoid it. However, it's a cowardly move.

Of course, the Leftists are considering this a victory, and to a certain extent, it is.

What's crazy is these Leftists aren't Harley's market. They aren't their customers, but they care more about bowing to them then remaining true to their loyal riders.
