US threatens new tariffs on $2.4 billion in French goods

The US is preparing new tariffs on French goods in retaliation for France's new digital services tax, which Washington says unfairly targets American companies. We take a closer look. Meanwhile, Brazil and Argentina are also facing new US tariffs on their metal exports amid currency devaluations. And post-Thanksgiving sales rack up record numbers.

    France you live by taxes and you will die by taxes . Why haven’t you learned from the Yellow Vests riots which were initiated by your elitist climate change policy of raising taxes on gas at the expense of lower income and middle income taxpayers who live outside of Paris .

    France why do you think no Financial Firms left London for Paris and the few that did went elsewhere?

    Actually stupid Ukrainians buy Russian gas from Europe making a huge loss. They could be getting cheap Russian gas from Russia but because they are useless idiots, they would rather buy Russian gas pumped to Germany.

    Yet the most idiotic trade deal (I.e the Israeli US trade deal)isnt triggering tariffs. The US is not a sovereign country, but 4 sale to the highest bidder

    It would be a grave mistake for France to get into a trade war with the U.S. over this. They will lose.
