Why is Donald Trump Lobbying for Harley-Davidson in India?

1737 ratings | 44924 views
US president Donald Trump thinks that India's import duty of 50 percent on completely built foreign bikes is too high. In the US, he claims there is zero tax on imports, and that India is taking advantage of that.

Only the muslim indians are against trump, but hindu indians are slaves to trump.....even if trump wants to destroy india, hindus will support trump cuz they are hopeless and eager for that tiny bit of modernity they never see themselves reaching (except by selling out to another culture like the US)

make your product economic and we will reduce the taxes. if you will over price the product we will make it double. that is all business. harley devidson is costlier and it is not manufacturing locally here. so we don't get any taxes. so we imposed taxes in order to make profit. if you want to impose heavy duty do it fast we don't care because what we sell in usa is not a considerable amount.

America cannot match up to the Consumer base at home compared to that of INDIA. Pricing is the main factor why Harley will not succeed as Indians cannot afford a price tag which is beyond the reach of Middle & Lower ranks of the Indian Market which is the Vibrant consumer base.

Harley represents America and Americans. Trump represents America and Americans.. India attaches 100% tax on a bike coming from the US. Why wouldn't the US do the same.?? And personally I owned 4 Royal Enfields and got tired of walking so I stopped buying them. I hope Trump fixes a 200% tax on that Indian shit.

indians are most delusional people in the whole world. from my personal experience i know how hard it is to export in india. They will try anything to stop you to export in their country but whenever it comes to import from india you will see the total different scenario! WTO should ban india from international trade. Let them make their own goods for themselves and we also wont buy their product. Let them live in their own paradise!

Everything is charged "duty" and taxes in India. This is from the License Raj days. When even Citizen watches were charged 100% duty to protect HMT watches. Even today every item is duty-ied heavily. Why do you think a Rolls Royce Phantom costs 550.000 US dollars in USA and 1,360,000 in India.

eddieisfiction Yes, if America wants to retain the following: 1.) US dollar to remain the reserve currency of the World. 2.) Ability to fund both a warfare and welfare state. 3.) Keep inflation and interest rates in the US low. US can definitely impose tariffs, every country is free to do what it likes ESPECIALLY THE USA, just be prepared for the consequences.

i think 50% is still a bargain for us . . . as it is very high duty . . . just put us in the place of U.S . . . . facts are correct . . . But, Not justifying 50% on harleys . . . its lop-sided
Well, he's right isn't he? Taxes are far too high. This is quite strange considering we have a (broadly) conservative government, who are interested in increasing taxes. Taxation, Recirculation, accumulation, liquidation, currency crash, and taxation again. This is not a governmental issue alone (ie, every single government since 1947 has been making the same mistake over and over again), rather one of economic common sense. GST may have been a step in the right direction, but the import/export duty is still too high. Consider this, developed countries develop primarily due low logistical overhead, if fuel alone is so heavily taxed, how is that possible? We should focus on infrastructure and public transport.

gaming singh India exports more to the US than vice versa. Do you really want the US to add tariffs to your goods in return? That would not work in your favor if that happened. You are advocating for trade war when you have tariffs

Yes but that money goes to America supporting american workers but if harley manufactured in india that would creat jobs in india. So govt wants us not to choose imported things over Indian manufactured goods and want harley to come manufacture in india..

Too much custom duty, on every imported product,, but also in india, many company makes same type of product but in a duplicate manner, means if any food product contains a tag of 25 % vitamine, they actually add only 5 %,, and our govt says make in andia, its ok but quantity but not of quality... Every time their is politics in goods also, and hike in every product but no development...

I ordered 10 ics weighing less than 100 grams and costing 3000rs, can u believe i had to pay 2750 rs just on taxes and custom duties?

I believe the sole reason behind Trumps outburst is that he wants India to do things according him like many other countries do (like India use to do) but India is doing things in its own way. This pissed him off, so this is his an attempt to put pressure on PM by making fun of him. But he will fail for sure.

Being Indian I feel proud that a person at his level is desperately want to sell his product in India. We don't see the sales or promotions of our products done by our PM or President... You're wrong..
GS400 (6 months ago)
Indian Government's logic of putting duties, is that it will force foreign companies to manufacture in India and thus generate jobs for the poor. They also insist on foreign companies having joint-ventures with Indian companies to help industrialists. The middle-class is ignored. We have to buy sub-standard products from substandard Indian companies in the name of creating jobs. The Indian middle class is the most abused and over-taxed middle-class in the world. Indian politicians, instead of creating a more business-friendly environment, which will help everyone, want to take short-cuts. We have a corrupt bureaucracy, over-burdened legal system and dismal infrastructure. Fix this three things and Indians will be able to complete with anyone. Short-cuts like tariffs will eventually hurt us (our manufacturing sector lags way behind most Asian countries). Wait till Trump starts targeting our IT and Service sector. Then it will be a double-whammy for the middle-class.

Though import duties in India is for protecting the Indian businesses but as a customer i feel very bad when i have to pay almost double the price for every product that we Indians buy... take all the electronics for examples.. they cost almost double in India.. i recently bought a dell XPS 13 for 88k and the same was available in US for 46K.. all the cars cost more than double here.. the cost of phones ia really high.. Indias per capita income is very low and the cost of all goods be it electronics apparels cars cost much higher in india.. whereas in US its quite opposite.. their per capita income is among the highest and the goods there are much cheaper.. unless we indians dont have access to the latest technology how are we suppose to progress? The Indian companies havent done much.. TATA makes the worst cars ever.. their Nano was a complete fail.. nobody wants to buy a Tata car... inpspite of government supporting our indian companies by imposing such high duties the Indian companies havent been able to do much and it is the end customer who bears the burden of tax and ends up paying a huge price.

Gaurav if you want to help India please go ahead and give ur entire wealth. 50% tax is applied in a dictatorship. So u sell anything u ll get 50₹ and govt gets 50₹. In some cases our govt is worse than a dictatorship accept it or disagree it. People life can never ever be improved by taxing, my life is only when make something, or work, learn something new. Anyways thanks for your time n effort, I appreciate it. I'm just a random guy. Our banking system is horrible. The rate of interest when u deposit is probably 6-8% max. The rate of interest when you borrow is 13-16% per annum, but taxing 28% to 100% per transaction is wrong. We might as well whack the rich and make them poor. By the way you don't have to be rich to buy HD bikes some of my friend's friends have it, they're just normal people like you n me. Peace.
