Chris Cox, the leader of Bikers for Trump, a band of pro-Trump motorcycle enthusiasts, told FOX Business Opens a New Window. on Thursday that he’s not happy with Harley-Davidson and President Trump is right to call them out for producing motorcycles outside of the U.S.
Cox said the biker community has stuck with the iconic American motorcycle maker through good and bad, but are “firm believers in American-made motorcycles,” and also added that Harley has the ability to easily make parts domestically.
“If Harley-Davidson wants to turn its’ back on the biker community to not show the respect that they deserve with the veterans and blue collar we certainly will move on,” Cox said to Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co Opens a New Window. .”
Cox added that he’s not “engaged” to Harley-Davidson motorcycles and pointed out that there are other American-made companies across the country.
“If Harley wants to take its business elsewhere,” he said, “then the biker will figure out how to make his own parts.”
Harley has been threatening to move its production across the pond well before Trump became president, he added, and to use Trump’s tariffs as an excuse is “nonsense.”
Taking FX’s traditional Sunday Hall H slot, the July 22 panel for the Latino biker series co-created by Elgin James and starring Edward James Olmos and J.D. Pardo is expected to reveal M.C.’s debut date among other treats. The 1-2 PM gathering is also expected to include the eminently quotable Sutter, James plus Pardo and other cast, as well as look at the series.
Sutter gave a new look at the highly anticipated show online earlier today:
The Fox 21 TV Studios-produced Mayans M.C. isn’t the only FX series hoping to blow SDCC’s mind July 22. From 2:15-3:15 PM, Legion will also take over Hall H with stars Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza plus EP Noah Hawley in the huge venue. A Comic-Con vet on both coasts, the X-Men-derived series was recently renewed for a third season by FX that looks to premiere in early 2019.
As well as the two live dramas in Hall H as the closers of SDCC 2018, FX’s slate will include a return appearance by Archer. The long-running sardonic animated spy series will appear on a panel at 5:15 PM on July 20 in the San Diego Hilton’s Indigo Ballroom with cast and creatives.
As always, FX will have a large presence in SDCC outside the convention center with its prime real estate branding on the side of the waterside Hilton and more.
San Diego Comic-Con runs July 19-22.
