Trump's heavy foreign economic policy could lead to another hotbed of world trade war that erupts in Europe. The U.S. Department of Commerce said that goods coming into the United States from France could be subject to an additional tax of about $ 2.4 billion.

The US authorities are taking such measures in response to the decision of France by the Senate in the summer to impose a 3% tax on high-tech companies Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, whose offices have a turnover of more than 25 million euros in the country.

According to the United States, such taxes will lead to pressure on leading US companies, forced to bear the "excessive burden". The response will relate primarily to dairy products (cheeses) imported from the United States from France, sparkling wines, cosmetics and cosmetics, as well as bags and porcelain products. New duties can almost double.

Russian law uses the requirement to pay value added tax (VAT) on products offered by high-tech companies in the United States as a “Google tax”.
