CNS Censors Trump's Role In Tariffs Pushing Harley Production Overseas

An Aug. 15 article by Emilie Cochran highlghted a question to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about whether "President Donald Trump would like to see a boycott on Harley-Davidson." By way of explaining, Cochran added, "In June, the company announced they would move some production overseas to avoid tariffs from the European Union."

But Cochran didn't mention why Harley is trying to avoid European tariffs: because of Trump's trade war.

Harley explained that the EU tariffs against it were enacted in retaliation for Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. The company has already been laying off workers in the U.S., closing a factory and using Trump's corporate tax cut to buy back stock isntead of passing it down to employees.

That seems like important context to report. But we know that CNS doesn't like to report when Trump or his administration does something negative.
