Donald Trump slams India for high import tariffs on Harley-Davidson

Washington: US President Donald Trump has slammed India for a high import tariff on Harley-Davidson motorcycle, calling it “unfair”, even as New Delhi slashed customs duty on imported motorcycles from high-end brands to 50 percent.

Trump, during a discussion with members of the Congress over steel industry, also threatened to increase the tariff on import of Indian motorcycles to the US.He said the recent decision of the Indian government to reduce the tariff from 75 percent to 50 percent was not enough and asked that it should be reciprocal, as the US imposes “zero tax” on the import of motorcycles.”We have so many countries where we made a product, they make a product, ..We pay a tremendous tax to get into their countries — motorcycles, Harley Davidson — it goes into a certain country. I won’t mention the fact that it happens to be India, in this case,” Trump said amidst laughter from the audience.
