France’s finance minister says that it will continue to carry out a plan to tax technology firms, despite a threat of tariffs on French goods from US President Donald Trump, according toReuters.

According to The Washington Post, that would affect nearly 30 companies around the world, not just firms from the United States.

Well it is understandable that countries want a slice of the huge success that tech companies enjoy but this tax here will end up being paid by the consumers at the end of the day. So it makes actually not too much sense I think.
