10. Somebody refresh my memory...

Didn't trump go to an HD plant one time when campaigning and tell them he would save their jobs? Or am I confusing two things?

Either way, I hope these employees didn't think he was going to help them in any way.

14. "Trump trotted Harley executives into the White House right after he was inaugurated"

"In February 2017 just days after his inauguration, President Trump invited Harley-Davidson executives and union representatives to the White House. Photographers snapped pictures of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence looking at motorcycles on the White House lawn."

13. 800 jobs might not seem huge yet it has a huge impact on the 800 and beyond

Its like crack the whip, 800 people are out of a job, and the secondary effects are much much worse throughout the community.

16. Huh?? In this BOOMING economy customers should be beating the doors down..........

Expensive bikes/toys but that matters not in this supposed "BOOMING" Trump economy.

I still say for the 1000th time it's all smoke and mirrors BULLSHIT.
