France hits back at US over tax on digital giants

Donald Trump threatens trade war over planned levy on firms such
as Amazon and Facebook

France has hit back against US plans to investigate
a planned tax on big digital companies
, saying it was free to
decide how it applies taxes as a sovereign country.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump ordered an investigation into the
French tax, an inquiry that could lead to the US imposing tariffs
or other trade restrictions.
