1. Trump’s beliefs on Harley-Davidson moving decision 

“U.S. President Donald Trump accused motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson Inc on Tuesday of using trade tensions over tariffs as an excuse to move production for European customers overseas. “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,” Trump said on Twitter.”

3. Is the beard trend truly appreciated by women?

“Have we reached peak beard? Aren’t we over the whole trendy facial fuzz thing by now? Absolutely not. In fact, the only thing we’re over is questions about whether we’ve reached peak beard yet, which went out of fashion ages ago. The beard is thicker, healthier, and as shiny as it ever was. It’s a trend that refuses to be trimmed back.”
