U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, an outspoken advocate for trade, issued the following statement after the President criticized Harley-Davidson’s response to new tariffs.  

“This will go over like a Vespa at Sturgis. The problem isn’t that Harley is unpatriotic - it’s that tariffs are stupid. They’re tax increases on Americans, they don’t work, and apparently we’re going to see more of this.”
