Protesters shut down the possibility of Trump visiting Milwaukee this week.
The Harley-Davidson factory that was the scheduled site for the President’s speech on the economy said they weren’t comfortable with hosting the President amid planned protests at their facilities.
A White House spokesperson confirmed to CNN that Trump will not be visiting Milwaukee on Thursday.
Harley-Davidson issued a statement Tuesday night saying they “don’t have, nor did we have, a scheduled visit from 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,” said Maripat Blankenheim, director of Harley-Davidson’s corporate communication. “We look forward to hosting the president in the future.”
