LETTER: We need Trump’s tariffs to bring back America’s factories

To Ozaukee Press:

Years ago I owned Harleys, then called Iron Horses or Hogs. They were beautiful bikes. I was proud to own one because they always said, “Made in USA,” the only bike that was made 100% in America.

So why is Harley losing money with the tariffs on steel and aluminum? Not American made? I heard they have a plant in Mexico.

Trump’s tariffs are the best thing that’s going to happen. It’s time we get our factories back.

What can you find that’s not made in China? It’s time we go back to fair trade—dollar for dollar. You don’t see any other country buying our products, except food. Trump is right.

Milwaukee used to have A.O. Smith, Harnischfeger, Master Lock, Jeep, etc.; now all gone. People in the inner core worked there. Now there’s no work and many are on welfare. They need those factories. 

Every country in the world is getting rich on us and we are going deeper in debt.
