Looks as if Donald Trump is super-pissed with high import duty that India imposed on Harley Davidson Motorbikes. While talking about this, he mimicked PM Modi.
Well, he was expressing displeasure over the high import duty on Harley Davidson bikes & said that US didn’t get “Anything”; this was after New Delhi announced that customs duty on imported motorcycles was slashed to 50 percent. Trump wants some fair deals to happen.
Talking about his recent call with PM Modi, Trump said,
“Now, the prime minister, who I think is a fantastic man, called me the other day and said we are lowering it to 50 per cent. I said okay, but so far we’re getting nothing.”
He even imitated his style and folded his hands. Trump tried using his serious and soft tone and said,
“He said it beautifully, he is a beautiful man and he said I just want to inform you that we have reduced it to 75 and we have further reduced it to 50. And I further said, huh, what do I say? Am I supposed to be thrilled?”
According to Trump United States get nothing whenever an Indian motorcycle is purchased.
“So when they have a motorbike — a big number, by the way — they have a company that does a lot of business. They have a motorcycle or a motorbike that comes into our country — the number is zero. We get zero. They get 100 per cent, brought down to 75; brought down, now, to 50. Okay”
