  • Trump threatens tariffs against 'foolish' Macron

    US President Donald Trump has accused French President Emmanuel Macron of "foolishness" over a digital services tax, and hinted that he would tax French wine in retaliation.

    Mr Trump voiced his anger in a Tweet on Friday, in response to French plans to tax multinational firms like Google.

    French authorities argue that the firms pay little or no corporate tax in countries where they are not based.

    The Trump administration has said the tax unfairly targets US tech giants.

    "France just put a digital tax on our great American technology companies. If anybody taxes them, it should be their home Country, the US," Mr Trump wrote on Twitter.

    "We will announce a substantial reciprocal action on Macron's foolishness shortly. I've always said American wine is better than French wine!"

    The president - who does not drink - also warned US tech giant Apple that it would not be given any tariff relief on parts made in China. "Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!" he wrote.

    The US is the world's largest consumer of wine and the largest import market, with France consistently among the top origin countries for imported wine.

    If Trump wants to show he's serious, he needs a taunting nickname for Macron.
