Trump said on Monday that upcoming talks about France’s tax on the revenues of big technology firms would determine whether the US imposes its own tax on French wine. 

According to Macron, France and the US have reached a deal to end a standoff over a French tax on big internet companies.

Trump had threatened to hit back with tariff action after France passed a law earlier this year that would impose a three per cent tax on revenues earned on digital services in France.

Macron told reporters that companies that pay the tax would be able to deduct the amount once a new international deal on how to tax internet companies is found next year.

‘We’ve done a lot a work on the bilateral basis, we have a deal to overcome the difficulties between us,’ Macron told reporters, speaking alongside Trump at the end of a G7 summit.
