After news this week broke that Harley-Davidson cancelled a visit with President of The United States Donald Trump at their plant in Milwaukee, WI, executives from the company decided instead, to attend a meeting with the commander in chief on his own turf, in Washington, DC. The original meeting, which was supposed to focus on American manufacturing strategies in the US, allegedly came with too many fears of planned protests, forcing Harley-Davidson to regroup and find a different way to make the meet happen.
The meeting happened yesterday, February 2, 2017, as a luncheon, after a photo op with the POTUS and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle line up at the White House. The president, alongside Vice President Mike Pence, greeted Harley-Davidson company officials outside the White House in front of a line of bikes, where they then snapped a photo, that the President would later tweet. The President spoke to the Harley-Davidson executives, as well as with steelworkers and machinists, inside the White House.

Do you think, now that Harley-Davidson has had the chance to sit down with the man in charge, that we’ll be seeing some positive changes in their manufacturing coming up in the future?
