Earlier, France’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire warned against mixing together the issues of a digital tax that Paris seeks to slap on US tech companies and the levies on French wine pledged by President Trump.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that President Donald Trump has reaffirmed his threat to impose tariffs on French wine in retaliation following Paris’ push to introduce taxes on US tech giants.
Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Trump said that he doesn’t want “France going out and taxing great American companies” because it’s “very unfair”.
“And if they do that, we'll be taxing their wine or doing something else. We'll be taxing their wine as they've never seen before. That's for us to tax them, not for France to tax them,” he pointed out as he was boarding a helicopter outside the White House to head to the upcoming G7 summit in the French seaside resort of Biarritz.
