Scott Walker Opposes Trump-Backed Harley Boycott

The Associated Press reports:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson both came out Monday against boycotting Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson, the day after President Donald Trump said it would be “great” if there was a boycott.

Trump’s Sunday tweet forced Walker and other Republicans to take a position on the sticky political issue involving an iconic Wisconsin company just ahead of Tuesday’s primary where Trump allegiance has been a central focus.

Nicholson, who faces state Sen. Leah Vukmir in a Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, said on WTMJ radio that “I don’t want to see Harley-Davidson boycotted,” but didn’t think a boycott would be necessary because Trump’s approach to trade was succeeding and opening new markets.
