Is America First a lost war?

His latest target in this fight is the iconic motorcycle company Harley-Davidson Inc, native to America. The company recently announced that it would be shifting some of its operations abroad to cut cost.

This comes after an earlier statement that most of their plants in Kansas City will be moved to Thailand.

Trump is making threats

Although, Trump's reaction does not provide some context, the company actually has a good reason for this: they want to avoid heavy tariffs resulting from Europe's trade war with the president for placing tariffs on imported metals.

As the saying goes, all is fair in love and war, but Trump does not think so. He believes the company is using the trade war as an excuse to be unpatriotic. In response, he has been making threats, heavy taxation included, on Twitter.

Naturally, Americans are weighing in on the public spat between the former friends.

Hurting Americans

Interestingly, Trump's fight with Harley-Davidson to protect American businesses comes after he attacked a rural farm-to-table restaurant in Virginia. They had asked his chief press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, to leave their establishment because of political differences.

It would seem the Trump administration is hurting Americans more than he is saving them. What do you think?
