The EU unveiled Wednesday proposals for a digital tax that targets U.S. tech giants, heaping more problems on Facebook after revelations over misused data of 50 million users shocked the world.The special tax is the latest measure by the 28-nation European Union to rein in Silicon Valley giants and could further embitter the bad-tempered trade row pitting the EU against U.S. President Donald Trump.The unprecedented tech tax follows major anti-trust decisions by the EU that have cost Apple and Google billions and also caught out Amazon.The tax lands as EU agencies are also set to tighten rules on data privacy, targeting tech firms.These numbers are, however, disputed by the tech giants, which have criticized the tax as a "populist and flawed proposal".
