Harley-Davidson Reportedly Cancels Trump’s Visit Over Planned Protests

A Harley-Davidson factory in Milwaukee backed out of hosting President Donald Trump later this week due to plans for large protests, an anonymous administration official told CNN.

Trump had been scheduled to sign executive orders related to manufacturing at the factory on Thursday.

The official told CNN that while Harley-Davidson was fine with having Trump sign executive orders at its factory, the company was hesitant to host the President amid protests.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Facebook group Mikwaukee Coalition Against Trump announced that the President’s visit at the factory had been cancelled, thanking members for a “call-in action”that “put the pressure on Harley.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
