After canceling his Milwaukee trip to Harley-Davidson HQ, President Trump invited the Motor Company and union officials to the White House on Feb. 2.

The President remarked, “It’s great to have Harley-Davidson. What a great, great group of people and what a fantastic job you do… Harley-Davidson is a true American icon, one of the greats. Your motorcycles have carried American service members in the war—in the wars. They take care of our police officers. And I see it so often—whenever I go—whenever there’s a motorcycle group, oftentimes it’s a Harley. And the sound of that Harley is a little different, I have to tell you. It’s really good.”

While addressing the union officials and Harley-Davidson, President Trump joked, “Who is a steelworker here?  Well, you’re all steelworkers, essentially, right?”

Harley-Davidson has a long history of US Presidential involvement, three of the last five sitting presidents—Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton—have visited H-D factories and facilities. In 2009, Harley-Davidson of Frederick provided and assembled the motorcycles, including a one-of-a-kind 2009 Harley-Davidson Police concept Tri Glide Ultra Classic that lead Barack Obama’s Inaugural Parade. Harley-Davidson of Frederick had previously participated in five other inaugural events.
