Trump Administration Warns UK of Dumping Free Trade Deal, Urges Tax Cut for US Firms - Reports

Washington has warned London that the UK would not get a free trade deal unless a new tax affecting US tech giants is dropped, The Telegraph reported Friday.

In particular, the Trump administration has demanded that the digital services tax, affecting Amazon, Google, Facebook and Twitter, is ditched before it becomes law in this fall, according to the Telegraph.

The warning was communicated to the UK Government “at multiple levels” and has emerged as one of the most significant hurdles to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s hopes of a speedy agreement, the UK-based media outlet said.
