WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s administration proposed Monday slapping stiff tariffs on $2.4 billion in French products including cheese and champagne in retaliation for France’s new digital services tax.

In a report released just hours before Trump is scheduled to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in London, the U.S. Trade Representatives’ Office said tariffs of as much as 100 percent are under consideration because France’s digital services tax discriminates against U.S. companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon.

The decision “sends a clear signal that the United States will take action against digital tax regimes that discriminate or otherwise impose undue burdens on U.S. companies,” Ambassador Robert Lighthizer said in a statement.


This is good. France needs to stop its blatant theft on the U.S.

Not content with America's ass getting kicked by China, now he wants to be humiliated by France as well.

Oh Well, it will be nice when all the Boomers cry that their wine is more expensive now.

Trump only understands the part where the government collects the tariffs.

At least on most days. The others when he has a bit more clarity, he understands but doesn't care.
