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.”
