Evidently, "The Red Hen" is quite a popular name for a restaurant. Establishments with that brand from Florida to Connecticut, which are unrelated to the one in Alexandria, Virginia, that asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave on Friday, are reporting harassing phone calls, comments, and general trolling. Even a book publishing nonprofit based in Los Angeles is getting abuse (New York Post).

Harley-Davidson is on President Donald Trump’s mind this morning after it was reported that the motorcycle company will shift more production overseas to avoid tariffs (WSJ). Trump tweeted last night that he was "surprised" that Harley "would be the first to wave the white flag" and continued to defend his trade policies on Twitter on Tuesday morning.
Early this year Harley-Davidson said they would move much of their plant operations in Kansas City to Thailand. That was long before Tariffs were announced. Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse. Shows how unbalanced & unfair trade is, but we will fix it.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2018
