    Further proof (if any was needed) of his delusional state.

    Can't see many of the old-moneyed families of the Grand old U.S. of A. being too chuffed with having to forego their regular consignments of Dom Perignon, 'cos "some pouty clown in the White House" doesn't like France & has decided to tantrum tax French imports.

    Most of them think he's a dickhead anyway, esp the old money families of New York.

    2 options

    the oompa loompa wins and nothing changes
    the oompa loompa gets shut down by someone telling him no and nothing changes

    this is the clown that could loose a million dollars at the table and the next morning brag about how he played the dealer (btw I am a reluctant American)

    Very rarely do luxury items get properly taxed/tariffed. If not out right excluded there be a loop hole that only the wealthy can exploit (e.g. only taxed when imported commercially, taxed exempt when imported for personal use). The moneyed families won't support politicians who cut them off from their pleasures.
    He only said wine because he has no idea what else France might export.

    Looks like the tango man has threatened that if the UK don't drop their digital service tax their not going to get a trade deal, seems a bit disproportionate but i guess friends really do come in handy.

    There was never going to be a substantial trade deal any way unless we signed up to extremely unfavourable conditions, so empty threat is empty.

    It’s at times like these you get to find out who your actual friends ... were.
