Trump threatens to retaliate against French tariffs on American wine


France 24 business editor Bryan Quinn comments on "the renewed threats from the US President Donald Trump to escalate America's trade conflics on a number of fronts," including revisions to existing trade policies with Mexico and China. Most notably, Trump has threatened to "retaliate for what he calls unfair taxes on American wine entering the EU, singling out French wine," despite the fact that as a member of the EU, France is not responsible for setting its own tariff policies.

  • Vrai ou faux : la France est-elle le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes ?

    Au vu du niveau de taxation dans l'Hexagone, nous ne sommes pas loin d'être le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes. En effet, sur un paquet de tabac qui coûte 10 euros, 85% du prix part dans les caisses de l'État. Ce qui est trop élevé par rapport à la majorité de nos voisins européens avec la Belgique taxant à 78% et le Luxembourg à 69%. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas les champions, mais nous sommes sur le podium avec la Finlande et l'Estonie qui taxent les cigarettes plus que nous.
