(CNSNews.com) - When asked if President Donald Trump would like to see a boycott on Harley-Davidson, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday the president would like to see the company move manufacturing back to the U.S.

One reporter asked, “On Harley-Davidson, the president commented earlier in the week ‘Many Harley-Davidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great!’ Is the president of the United States endorsing a boycott of an iconic American company?”

“Look, the president has made his feelings on that very clear. The president’s focus is on making sure that we get good trade deals and that we keep business and industry here in the United States,” Sanders said.

“Does he want to see a boycott of Harley though?” the reporter asked.

“I think he’d rather see them put all their companies back here in the United States and build all of their great machines here in this country.”

Harley-Davidson was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1903. In June, the company announced they would move some production overseas to avoid tariffs from the European Union.
