Let's tree again: Macron offers Trump replacement 'friendship' oak

French President Emmanuel Macron during a joint presser with Vladimir Putin

"It's no big drama, " Macron said.

"Europe. must build new rules of trust and security with Russian Federation, and should not only agree with NATO", Macron said in an interview with the Swiss television channel RTS.

It was put into quarantine to prevent the possibility of parasites spreading to other trees in the White House grounds.

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

"We should not see a symbol where there is none". "We have disagreements but we continue working together", he noted.

Now it appears the oak did not survive its time in quarantine.

The tree was brought over from Belleau Wood in France, where about 2,000 American servicemen died during World War One. "And that war is present in our democracies, it's the profound crisis we're going through", Macron said.


However, shortly after the ceremonial planting, the European sessile oak - which was about four feet to five inches tall, and between five and 10 years old - was removed and placed under the care of the United States Depart of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service at its facilities in Beltsville, Maryland.

Ms Merkel has said she will retire from politics when her term as German chancellor ends in two years' time and is not officially a candidate for European Commission president, throwing her support behind Weber, instead.

Yet despite the symbolic setback, officials in both countries say Trump and Macron have been getting along well.

Once described as a "bromance", the presidential relationship has since withered.

Trump said on the trip that relations between the two countries and leaders were "exceptional" but the leaders have disagreed on a number of key issues lately including sanctions on Iran, trade, and climate change.

During a speech in September 2018 to the United Nations General Assembly, Macron argued that "dialogue and multilateralism" were a more effective means of solving problems.
