Trump threatened last week to make the move in retaliation for
France's proposal to levy a tax aimed at big U.S. technology
companies - known in France as the 'GAFAs' (Google, Amazon,
Facebook, Apple). Trump also said U.S. wine was better than
"It's absurd, in terms of having a political and economic
debate, to say that if you tax the 'GAFAs', I'll tax wine. It's
completely moronic," Guillaume told BFM TV. "American wine is
not better than French wine," he added.
