Earlier this week President Donald Trump was planning a visit to the Milwaukee-area to give an economic speech at a Menomonee Falls-based Harley Davidson plant. That visit was cancelled quickly among planned protests. But none of that stopped Trump from using Harley-Davidson to pledge his “America First” theme in business and trade deals.
Today Trump met with executives and union leaders from Harley-Davidson, Inc. in D.C. to discuss more.

“A lot of countries are taking advantage of us,” Trump said during a press briefing with the executives and union members.
He also used the opportunity to tout his election night victory in Wisconsin. “I want to thank the people of Wisconsin,” Trump said. “Great people. Amazing people. And they get it.”
