MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker will be doing another taxpayer-funded campaign fly around, while refusing to criticize Donald Trump for tariffs that Milwaukee’s Harley Davidson says will result in it moving production of the iconic brand overseas. Walker’s latest stop will be in Appleton, once again placing him in the Green Bay media market, where his Republicans have been consistently losing since Trump’s inauguration.

One Wisconsin Now’s Scot Ross offered the following statements regarding Walker consistent refusal to say or do anything to cross Trump:

“While Scott Walker campaigns in the air, Harley Davidson ships jobs overseas. Donald Trump caused this crisis and career politician Scott Walker is too intimidated to call him out.

“Scott Walker will say and do anything to try to win an election, but when it comes to Trump, he won’t say anything.

“Donald Trump is even publicly insulting Harley, but Scott Walker is so afraid of getting a Trump rage tweet that he won’t even stand up for a Wisconsin business.”
