Emmanuel Macron Offers Donald Trump To Replace 'Friendship' Oak Tree

Macron to send new tree to Trump after oak gift died The Trump-Macron "Friendship Tree" Has Died

French President Emmanuel Macron has confirmed the "friendship tree" he presented as a gift to the White House a year ago has died, and that a replacement is on the way.

In an interview with Swiss network Radio Télévision Suisse, Macron said he would give Trump a new tree to plant.

Europe should think outside North Atlantic Treaty Organisation dictates and restore relations with Russia, French President Emmanuel Macron stressed, calling for a "strategic debate" with Moscow over mutual areas of concern.

Responding to social media posts, Mr Macron said people should not read symbols into everything.

The two presidents, with their wives looking on, dug the hole for the tree while wearing suits in the White House gardens.

The original tree came from Belleau Wood in northern France, where thousands of United States troops died during World War I. "This oak tree (my gift to @realDonaldTrump) will be a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us", Macron tweeted at the time. Shortly after being planted, it had to be ripped out root and stem and placed in quarantine where it later died.

Woods 'fighting and hanging on' at US Open
Two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka , who's trying to become the first player in 114 years to win three consecutive U.S. But still, missing a putt from that short is both shocking and embarassing.

"We need to have a strategic debate, so this week I will have another, long and intense conversation with Vladimir Putin, as the president of France and the G7", Macron stressed. "There is disagreement among us, but we work together".

The news of the tree's death was described as "political satire" on Twitter, while others said it was symbolic of the pair's relationship.

While Trump and Macron appeared to get along during the D-Day Commemoration events in Normandy, France last week, there has been more recent friction rather than friendship.

"I think that's their style".

"I think they may have different perspectives, but they have very open conversations and they are very comfortable agreeing and disagreeing".
