The U.S. will announce but suspend retaliatory measures for France's digital services tax, Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said. "We're going to announce that we're going to be taking certain sanctions against France, suspending them like they're suspending collection of the taxes right now," Lighthizer said, according to Reuters . The U.S. says the French tax discriminates against companies such as Alphabet /zigman2/quotes/205453964/composite GOOG -0.37% , Facebook /zigman2/quotes/205064656/composite FB +1.19% and Apple /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL -2.27% .
