MILWAUKEE -- President Donald Trump will NOT head to Milwaukee for a previously scheduled visit of a Harley-Davidson factory after the company decided it wasn't comfortable hosting him amid planned protests, an administration official said Tuesday, January 31st.

While the White House did not officially comment as to why the trip was called off, the Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump is taking credit for the change of plans.

President Trump was supposed to stop in Milwaukee Thursday to talk about the economy. According to CNN, President Trump was going to tour Harley-Davidson, but large planned protests made the company uneasy.

Those protesters on Tuesday made it clear they don't want the President here.

The Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump issued this statement:

"Today, Milwaukee let the world know that Trump is not welcome here.

The Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump is thrilled that Trump has been forced to cancel his visit to Milwaukee, one of his first press events outside of Washington D.C. Fearing a massive protest, Trump was forced to cancel his event after a massive backlash from the community over his scheduled appearance at Harley-Davidson. The location of Trump's event, which was supposed to remain secret, was leaked by activists and a rally was planned outside the Harley-Davidson plant in Menomonee Falls. Thousands of people from all walks of life were prepared to protest Trump's visit and condemn his hateful speech and policies. The Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump organized a call-in protest to Harley-Davidson that resulted in a denial from Harley-Davidson, followed by an announcement from the White House that the trip was cancelled. Trump's unpopular policies have ignited an unprecedented resistance movement that will block his every move. We hope our success in Milwaukee sets the tone for the rest of Trump's Presidency, wherever he goes, there will be resistance!"

"We will rally against this oppression and we say we will not stand for this. We will break through the walls of bigotry," a protester said at Tuesday's rally.

Protesters marched outside immigration offices in Milwaukee -- taking a stand against President Trump's executive order that temporarily halts travel and immigration from seven countries.

"I think a lot of the people are scared of what these enforcement priorities are going to look like," Maricela Aguilar Monroy said.

Some protesters who have called Milwaukee home for decades said they're now fearful.

"I have deferred action, but I`m undocumented otherwise, and when we heard the executive order on enforcement particularly, we all got pretty scared," Maricela Aguilar Monroy said.

Tuesday's march was organized by the Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump -- protesting the President's potential visit to Milwaukee. News of the cancelation was met with cheers at Red Arrow Park.

"They said 'Trump`s not coming!'" a protester said at the rally.

"He`s not welcome in this state," Maricela Aguilar Monroy said.

"I think he would get a warm welcome in Wisconsin. I don`t think he`s scared of coming to Wisconsin. I think he`s busy," Van Mobley, president of the Village of Thiensville said.

According to CNN, President Trump was planning to sign executive orders on American manufacturing while in Wisconsin.

The White House hasn't said whether they plan to reschedule the trip.

    The media here would lead you to believe thousands of people were protesting when less than twenty five protesters were there. Just more BS that makes me glad Trump won. Keep up the lies, it only reinforces my views of the people who just won’t stop whining.

    • Requesting accountability

      Glad you have some job that allows for flex time to protest – or are you a student being supported by parents what – omg. Work?

  • J227

    MCAT libturds take credit for the cancellation of President Trump’s visit? Funny!! There were protesters at all of Trump’s Wisconsin campaign events and he never cancelled any of them. If this one is on Harley, as this story says, Harley sucks (and the writer as well for giving MCAT the undue credit by printing the garbage).

  • Maile Andrus

    Well, well, let’s see this collocation does not speak for the entire state or even the entire City…..I hope and Pray that he does come to Milwaukee. Those of us that voted and support him would like him to. The collocation is just probably another G. Soros paid set of protesters and haters. I support and Defend the slow down and the 90/120 day stay. I am sad that Fox News does not speak to Trump Supports, and only the loons that are trying to disrupt the Trump Administration ability to do it’s job. Please do not fall into the MSM one sided agenda to only show those that have clearly stopped taking their medication.

    • Hell in a Handbasket

      This local Fox channel chooses not to associate itself with the Fox News Channel. They get their news from CNN which is the last rated cable news network behind #1 Fox and #2 MSNBC. Fox 6 Milwaukee was purchased by the Chicago Tribune in December 2013 and has not been creditable since then but unfortunately channel’s 4, 12 and 58 also suck.

    • John Doe

      I would suspect that they are declaring war on the US, by carrying another countries flag down a US street in a “mob” like group. The people should be arrested and the flag should be burned.

  • Kinky

    These f’in protesters are not welcome here in Milwaukee . Go to Mexico, they will give you all the freedoms you want. Lol.

  • Harley sales are dropping for a reason

    As a HD owner I am very disappointed in Harley’s decision. You brand yourself as a company that has a rough, gritty side and you cave to these snowflake millennium liberals. Just read on Fox Business Channel your sales continue to fall and your reaching out to a new generation of riders. ARE THESE THE FUTURE RIDERS YOUR REACHING OUT TO!!!!!

  • REALLY IS THAT ALL

    Unless your famous, I’m an advocate against hyphenated names especially liberal women. Do you know what a pain in the ass it is to add them to a database. Is it their last name first or maiden name last? How should one alphabetize them with that damn hyphen between those alphabetic characters. I would just delete their maiden name and use their last name after the hyphen to make things easier. I get met with maddening overwhelming verbal feminist beating like you wouldn’t believe almost a whole syllabus of women studies thrown at my face like hot coffee from a pissed off barista. Ah, liberals. Thank goodness for Trump. Time to take this country back!

  • Trump voter

    This State voted for Trump. It’s an embarrassing day when we allow a few clowns to dictate how our entire State operates. Harley shouldn’t really be ashamed.

  • liberalstupidity

    this chick should say nice things about President Trump as he’s actually on her side, She doesn’t know that because of the brainwashing from the liberal left. If she was in another country she would be in jail or executed.

  • liberalstupidity

    The silent majority Trump voter usually has to work and are very busy. Some of us can’t sit and march all day and hold signs. We could come out in overwhelming numbers that would frighten the left. just sayin.

  • Sandra Anne

    So your picture of a handful of millennial idiots is representative of the state? They need to put down the signs, go home to their mom’s house and apply for a job. News Flash: Trump WON Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes.

  • GREGORY A PETERSON

    “President’s visit canceled: “He’s not welcome in this state”…..HEY stupid he is only The President of The United States of America…..he can pretty much pick and choose where he needs to be without some douchebag organization with an over inflated sense of purpose and a collection of monsterously overpadded egos telling him where he is or is not welcome….actually The Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump sounds like just another fancy name for just another B.S.snowflake temper tantrum……

  • Grow a pair

    Speak for yourselves. Not everyone shares your pitiful views. Trump is more than welcome, but no, the whiners and the lazy have to piss and moan. As for HD, grow some balls. Here I was planning on going out to buy a new bike, my first Harley, but I’m going to buy a Honda now. As for the protesters, go get a job.

  • CCC

    Kinda sounds like Harley has either gone soft or else they agree with these whiners. Either way, they have lost my support! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

    • Steven C Goble

      Look who the whiners are now… You guys for letting Trump get into your minds… Do you not see what he is doing to our American reputation around the world… I read articles from at least 30 countries that DO NOT support Trump… He was uninvited to England… England needed 100,000 signatures to get Parliament to review the situation… They got over 900,000 signatures… One of our closest ally’s… He has completely alienated Mexico… Now he’s working on the rest of the European and Asian country’s… And lets not forget the ban on Muslims… During his campaign and immediately after his election… He said he would leave same sex marriage alone… He said that on 60 Minutes…
      Him and his cabinet are going to be introducing legislation to repeal same sex marriage and file one on Christian freedom… This would allow any employer, landlord, stores etc. to fire you for just being gay… This is your wonderful president…. He’s not mine… Donnie Dump is a psychopath and mentally disturbed…

  • Charles

    Protest as much as you want, It won’t change the fact that Donald Trump is our President!
    You got four years of Trump so get used to it or pack up and move to a better country, good luck with that!

    I am glad my Harley is it storage right now cause I would be embarrassed to ride it out in public. Come on Harley you caved to a bunch of snowflakes

  • DieselPower

    Well after being Harley owners for the past 20 years, ours are going up for sale. No more attending Harley events, anniversaries or taking out of town family members to the museum. No more paying for overpriced bikes, parts, service and clothing. Thanks Harley Davidson, you made up our mind to rid our house of all memorabilia and products. These liberal protestors do not speak for me nor does Harley Davidson. Donald Trump has done more in the past 3 weeks for the good of our country than Obama did in 8 years. People who do not like Donald Trump are people who feel entitled to “freebies” in life. I voted for Donald Trump because I am tired of being a hard working, tax paying, law abiding citizen who is paying for the bottom feeders who are sucking the life out of this country. Republicans: “Working like crazy to support the lazy”.

  • polymorph

    It’s actually “the coalition against the president of the united states” and they should be rounded up as radicals and jailed for crimes against the united states.

  • lovin2017sofar

    Shame on you Harley. No guts no glory. You let a handful of people led by an illegal call the shots. Should have held it, let the protesters come, let them get out of hand so they can be id’d arrested and sent back. Don’t they have jobs? They are not your customer base.

  • FOX6 IS FULL OF CRYBABY LIBERALS

    I still have yet to get an answer from any of these braindead liberals as to what “Bigotry” they are talking about. If they are referring to the Immigration situation then why didn’t they protest or call their pal Obama a bigot back in 2011 when he imposed the EXACT SAME IMMIGRATION BAN on the very same 7 countries? Oh didn’t fit your agenda then did it? These protesters need to put their money where their mouth is and leave the country!

    • lovin2017sofar

      Simple they didn’t whine then because they didn’t want to bite the hand that fed them. Now that the illegal may have to leave,able body, able minded people may actually have to work, they are freaking the he!! out. Although there may be steady work as a protester. Hope they filled out I-9s, have work visas, etc so they can pay taxes to support the truly disabled, elderly and vets.

  • FOX6 IS FULL OF CRYBABY LIBERALS

    LOL the snowflake is an “English Literature” major.. she’ll make a fine racist Starbucks employee because that’s about the only place that will hire a vagina-waving airhead like her. We should compile a list of EVERY SINGLE ONE of those protestors and make it public so the public can let them know how we feel about these snowflake protestors “representing” us.

  • Phil

    Rather ironic when illegal aliens like Maricela Aguilar Monroy are in the news protesting about our country. Shouldn’t ICE out be there checking Green Cards?

    • Jack Sprat

      This link provides an explanation to the change in plans. Trump is going to visit the family of the fallen Navy SEAL. MAGA

      • FAUX6 IS LIBERAL GARBAGE

        Jack: The libturds at FAUX6 don’t want you to know that, it doesn’t fit into their libtard-agenda. They would rather make a “big news story” out of that handful of crybaby snowflake rioters than actually give a truthful perspective as to what is really going on.

  • Eric

    So let me get this straight. The 20 or less there and this undocumented person Maricela or what ever her name is speaks for Milwaukee? This undocumented person says the president of the United States is not welcome in Wisconsin? I’m done sitting idly by while these snowflakes and illegals cry. It’s time to kick the teeth in on these libtards. Maricela you are undocumented and are not welcome in this state.. I have no problem dragging you to the Illinois boarder by your hair.

    • FAUX6 IS LIBERAL GARBAGE

      The skank in question: https://www.facebook.com/aguilarmaricela Someone needs to lead ICE to where she’s staying… she obviously doesn’t like the US, so maybe she should go back down to her 3rd world country. I’m sure they will “tolerate” her vile hatred and attention-whoring in that country LOL!

  • Gaynor Henry

    THAT’S your protest? ROFLMAO! This was a HUGE mistake by Harley Davidson, because there are a lot of riders out there who voted for Trump. I wonder if their next bike will be a Harley? Doubtful.
