    Oh France. You don't tax American companies when Trump is in office. This will not end well for France.

  2. Metaphix says:

    This is just a ploy to keep the yellow vests at bay.

  5. MrAbx says:

    Hey France – pay your NATO fees.

  6. Matt Gardner says:

    What do we trade with France anyway. Didnt know they produced anything we need or use.

  7. Real Name says:

    France turned into a welfare nation when they opened the door to all the "refugees". Macron needs to keep that welfare coffer full so of course he'll go after the US. Here's an idea France, send all those refugees back to Syria, somalia and everywhere else they come from and your welfare expenditures will drop 70%. Germany will be the next to go after the US tech companies for welfare bailouts, every "refugee enriched" EU nation will.

  20. Pamela Sue says:

    Is google an American company? They don’t even show up for congressional hearings or abide by anti-discrimination laws. Why would we protect them?

  21. Merlin Grim says:

    Outstanding! France just goes from bad to worse. The country is drowning in Muslim slums and poverty so civil war is poised to go kinetic. It’s just a matter of time now before France gets to host another invasion!

  22. Canadian Man says:

    Fine, Google and all hiTech companies, simply leave France and stop all services to them.

  23. Afoo Danner says:

Theyr destroying the Christian countries across Europe!! I'm British and I voted to leave the corruption that is the European Union!! They're right up the backside of China at this time!! We real British people don't want any part of the European Union!! No deals with European Union!! Total independence for British people and Britain!! I just hope that Boris Johnson sends all those EU citizens who are claiming British benefits back to their own countries in Europe!! And take their kids with them so many Romanian people dump their kids in children's care homes after neglecting them whilst taking British benefits!! Lazy people who don't belong in Britain today!!!

  34. Charles Hull says:

    For some reason, I don't feel bad for Alphabet, Twitter, or Facebook.
    Wonder why that is?

  35. blue eyes white dragon says:

    I can't believe my grandfathers went to save France from Nazis only for them to be just as worse just disguised in a rainbow or green cloak but I'm glad that social media got hit with there own fascism

  36. Ironballs Mcginty says:

    America should follow. "Big tech" needs to be regulated.

  37. DAB 369 says:

    Cut them off

  38. Russell Eads says:

    Way to go France! Really? I can't believe I said that! But, these are the wealthiest companies in the World, they should be paying more tax in the USA!!!!

  39. Regina St. John says:

    America needs to regulate and tax big tech into oblivion

  40. Bob Beckel says:

    The morons at Fox all agree. LOL .What will France use the revenues for??? The Fox Hen House has no clue. LOL

  46. Gregory Chaffer says:

    Google and Twitter and Facebook are communist businesses that are corrupting American politics in weakening the American business Independence by trying to turn our country into a communist country so they need to go down

  47. Based lvl 9000 Ultra Chad Boomer says:

    Never been to France and I never will period.

  48. Justin Colvin says:

    My only question here is, Does France already get paid off the companies that are making money there or not. Meaning do these companies such as google or fb, do they not already pay the government in some way.

  49. Justin Colvin says:

    I do question whether or not this should be a thing. I know in most countries whether or not you are an American company or not if you operate in said country you pay their taxes.

  50. Yugioh Pokemon says:

    France raising taxes because they can’t produce anything. Also frances unemployment percentage is 9 percent over double USA

  51. Robert Kubrick says:

    All those muslims in france aren't assimilated and in the workforce, they are sucking up welfare.

  52. Robert Kubrick says:

    I see great good coming from this. Tech companies pulling out of France. They don't actually NEED to be IN France, they are on line. If a frog country wants to advertise with them? They can do so in another country. LOLOLOLOL

  53. Robert Kubrick says:

    Those tech companies don't need to be in frogland. They are just there so they can rotate some people through there as a perk, those that want to be there.

  54. Kevin House says:

    The French must have lost their minds what are they thinking

  55. 3rd bomb says:

    The u.s. should follow suit

  56. greg poulin says:

    They need money for all the immigrants. It's not for their own citizens.

  57. Cary Huff says:

    Nahhh….. you're crazy Jonathan.  Tax big tech every way you can.

  58. Chatla Suresh says:

    France takes money to build it's poverty for yellow vests?

    President Maccron grills IT giants or Maccron hiting USA Federal?

  59. Christ Bearer says:

    Guy on lower left says U.S. should lower taxes on big tech….. as if they are struggling to make ends meet or something. These companies are worth billions by gathering and/or selling user's data without compensating users. This dude is nuts.

  60. 1 tzoth says:

    Fox who are these idiots. Your staff needs a bit of an overhaul. France can tax anyone they want. But Americans are paying enough for tec giants. Maybe America shude tax the tec giants and bring them to heal

  61. AC84 says:

    Macron has been dealing with China. Now raising taxes on USA ?

  62. IMA RUSSIAN says:

    GOOD, we have to learn from our french neighbors what to do and what not to do.
    heavily taxing goog, FB, amzn, aapl are smart policies.

  63. joe Vasquez says:

    These companies are rotten anyways…….. guess they need it to support there open borders non productive population

  64. joe Vasquez says:

    The EU censorship machine needs money

  65. Good Dad says:

    That's gonna suck for France when Google and Amazon pull out of France. France is gonna lose big time

  66. lithgrapher says:

    Macron needs to go.

  67. lithgrapher says:

    Lower tax in US!

  68. Skyler Drabing says:

    Lmao France. Tax hiking the Tariff President. I mean, it is what it is, France can do what they want and they don't know how to spend money, but a man with no brain could predict the result.

  69. Vincent Blanchard says:

    I hope people realize that socialist policies in France have ruined the country and the only thing politicians know how to do is… raise taxes, at any opportunity. Hope people worldwide realize why the Yellow Vest movement is so important and has to be given a hand to push Macron and his clique out!

  70. Kjeld Larsen says:

    About time those biggies pay up

  71. ZAZMOTOR says:

    French Macaron will beheaded as Robespier….

  72. Robert Montoya says:

    France is falling apart. They always need money and soldiers, but they don't seem to notice they have debt and insurrection

  73. Danny v says:

    Looks like they can't afford their Muslim voting slave class benefits anymore

  74. River City MOVERS says:

    Jonathon is wrong. Tariffs on France's goods to America is no big deal. Americans simply will not buy France's crap and lean to buying American stuff instead. And that's what Americans will do.

  75. River City MOVERS says:

    France needs the money of course. They must pay for Muslim lifestyles and needs because the Muslim community is kind and cheerful to all French people.

  76. Bobby Barrett says:

    Good luck France Soon as Trump is done with China he will take you to the woodshed to teach you some manners

  77. pinch mesh says:

    It might cost them business too. Time to leave.

  78. richard whittington says:

    face book denied Richard Whittington account and they did not like the truth getting out on Facebook on the web for all the people's to see and Facebook is working for the devil!

  79. Bill bick says:

    Mad magazine guy holly hell

  80. Brian Fike says:

    Good.

  81. Kenneth Cox says:

    I have no sympathy for big tech companies but a worldwide tax is another step to a one world government.

  82. Manis Imhanmhenisi says:

    Tax them and good job France??????

  83. Far North Weaver says:

    Tell France to Shove it where the sun don't shine. Americans aren't interested in Macron, and his mother/wife?

  84. Marky Mark says:

    Dumb move France, now Trump gonna tax you back!

  85. Ilidio Carmona says:

    make billions in the EU and then move your assets to a country where you pay 0% taxes!! TAX THE SH+T OUT OF THEM!!!

  86. John Grist says:

    It's real simple pull your platform from those countries that do this. The instant that you do they would remove the tax. They just tried it with Airlines on a new tax in France. We need to text every flight landing from France. They are on a money grab because they have way too many immigrants and their piggy bank is broke

  87. Sylvain Petiteau says:

    come on guys, google and others are settled in dozens of countries worldwide and they make millions if not billions of benefits in each of them. a 3% tax in only one of those countries won't ruin them at all. anf after all france in a sovereign state so the US has no right to decide of their fiscal policy. and dont you think it should be normal for a foreign company to pay taxes in the country hosting it? after all it's because of the country's workers they make benefits, the country they're in gives them the buildings where these workers work etc…

  88. lee says:

    good job,should rise to 25%.

  89. P Gray says:

    For sure its discriminatory and biased against the USA, just lessen your footprint then in France and pull back revenue from them

  90. P Gray says:

    Lol, a retroactive tax???? Lol, thats fukn brilliant,

  91. Miki Tricki says:

    Okay, maybe Google, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram and other US tech companies should just leave France? It'd be very interesting to see what will happen then.

  92. Danielle M says:

    We need that tax here, to give us health insurance

  93. Teresa Baker-Carl says:

    !!!!!? Are they trying to rebuild a Cathedral, or pay for their out-of-a-job citizens who would really rather work?!

  94. 3lightsteps says:

    Muslim welfare is expensive!

  95. don 50oh says:

    If its French give it up except French kissing and French vanilla ice cream…..

  96. Craig H. says:

    Tariffs only tax Americans that choose to buy from that country. Over time tariffs will shift markets to other supply lines from other countries.

  97. Jim Parlett says:

    Let's be clear – France is only taxing large international companies (some of which are American, some not) on the sales they make in France. It's a sales tax. Americ already applies sales tax to French wine, so it's totally fair. Global companies have a habit of headquartering themselves regionally in low-tax countries, making massive profits in other countries and paying very little tax on the profits they make there. Very often, they put local companies who do pay tax in that country out of business. France needs those taxes to pay for it's schools, hospitals, armed forces, so it's right that companies who make profits in France should pay a fair share of tax in France, whether they're French, British, German, Canadian or American.

  98. ronin10bt says:

    Tax French companies. See how they like it. I am not a fan of big tech but , if I am the big tech companies, I deny my services to France, period. Sorry Pierre, no Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Amazon for you. Tell Macron you are not paying him squat and let him cut the French off for you. What are the French going to do, send tax collectors to Silicon Valley? Evidently they don't remember what happened to the British when they tried that. For those who say that the tariffs hurt Americans, what do we get from France that we cannot get somewhere else? I cannot think of anything we get that only comes from France. If French products cost more, people won't buy them if they can get products from elsewhere cheaper. My understanding of this might be flawed but how is France going to collect this tax? What authority do they have to do this and how will they enforce it?
