France and US in standoff over French plan to tax US tech companies

President Trump ordered an investigation into France’s planned tax on technology companies on Wednesday saying it could lead to the United States imposing new tariffs or other trade restrictions. France responded by saying it was free to decide how it applies taxes as a sovereign country, labelling the US trade threat as ’inappropriate’

Okay two things one why the fuck does France need to issue new taxes I thought left leaning countries where magic fairy lands with low taxes and free everything for everyone. Two why trump these companies are not your friends and they have been evading taxes for decades.

I'm torn. On one hand, companies are pretty much all tax dodging assholes. On the other, they should be paying US taxes. Not just some French taxes.

I can see how this can be viewed as hostile or invasive to an extent, but aren't their tax codes public and being aware of them only helpful for everyone? I don't know much about how that works.

Offhand I can't think of anything besides wine that they could tax that would matter. Over-priced fashions maybe? There must be more, but I can't think of anything right now.

Someone explain to me why France has a right to my tax dollars? It's bad enough the far leaning left wants my whole paycheck, there's no "blood" left to spare. Should we send the Army in? With France war record our Army would be done cleaning up by evening.
