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.

“Thank you Harley-Davidson for building things in America,” Trump said during his remarks.

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.”

The president also focused on his theme of the need for health care and tax reform to help businesses succeed. He pledged to bring down the high cost of health care and also pledged tax reform, issues he has repeatedly raised during his time so far in office.
