WASH­ING­TON: US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump raised the is­sue of im­port tar­iffs im­posed by In­dia afresh on Tues­day when he spoke of the du­ties that mo­tor­cy­cle maker Har­ley-david­son pays, warn­ing that Amer­i­can could fight back with “re­cip­ro­cal taxes” on In­dian mo­tor­cy­cle im­ports.

Trump has long held In­dian tar­iff on Har­ley-david­son was pro­hib­i­tively high. He had first men­tioned it in his first ad­dress to a joint sit­ting of US congress in Fe­bru­ary 2017, just a few weeks af­ter tak­ing of­fice. But he had not named In­dia then.

Talk­ing to US law­mak­ers about trade at the White House on Tues­day, the pres­i­dent was less coy about the is­sue.
