BIARRITZ, France — U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday that France will have to strike a deal over taxing digital giants in order to avoid tariffs on French products like wine.
“Am I gonna tariff French wine? Well, it depends on the deal we work out on the digital tax,” Trump told reporters ahead of a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on the sidelines of the G7 summit.
