Why don't American companies like paying tax in Europe ?

Amazon,PayPal,Facebook,Google and the rest. The UK is not afraid of Trump's threats of tariffs 

Update:

UK musician Ed Sheeran paid more tax than Amazon

    It's ridiculous it's been allowed to go on this long...we pay 20% or 40% tax on our money yet these $multi-billion companies pay 2%. It can't be allowed to go on!

    It's so much worse than that.  The system is rigged to benefit those companies.  Some companies pay no tax at all.

    Because they can get away with paying less elsewhere.

    Because Europe is a joke.  Everyone's laughing but don't think they're dumb enough to let you idiots know.

    Once we’ve left the EU without a trade deal, UK will be so desperate for that trade deal with USA, those threats will be very real.

    Inside the EU, we have the economic muscle to stand up to Trump’s bully boy tactics. On our own? No chance.
