Trump + Harley = Made In America
On Thursday, Donald Trump met with the executives from Harley Davidson. Together with Vice President Pence, the duo greeted the bikers on the South Lawn.
The White House Press representatives said Trump repeated the phase, “Made In America” several times while giving a double-thumbs up.
Harley Davidson Is An American Staple
In an interview with Tim Ferriss, Seth Godin brought up Harley Davidson when compared to Suzuki, commenting, “No one gets a Suzuki tattoo…”
Seth Godin’s full comment about entrepreneurship and Harley Davidson:
Harley Davidson, my favorite example, changed disrespected, disconnected outsiders into respected family members, insiders. That’s what you get when you pay $12,000 for a motorcycle. Because if all you want is transport, buy a Suzuki. And the way to think about it is, no one gets a Suzuki tattoo. You can decide that you want to be tattoo worthy, that you want to change a population in a way that makes you indispensable. That kind of entrepreneurship requires insight at a different level. Ther’es nothing unattainable about it. I encourage people to go do it, but know that it is a higher stakes game than being a person who applies systems thinking to an existing clear need.
In many ways, Donald Trump is like a Harley Davidson, while his competitors are more like Suzukis.
The press asked Trump if he would be riding off on one of the bikes. As a joke, the President responded, “Boy, would you like to see me fall off of one of these.”
Do you prefer a Harley or a Suzuki?
