Macron to Send New Oak Tree to Trump after Death of First One

French president Emmanuel Macron has downplayed the death of an oak tree he planted with US president Donald Trump last year, saying people shouldn’t read symbols into everything and that he would send the American leader a new tree, ''The Guardian'' reports. 

The two men celebrated the special relationship between the United States and France during Macron’s state visit in April 2018 to Washington by planting the oak sapling on the grounds of the White House.

It was put in quarantine because of fears parasites on the tree could spread to others on the White House property.

US officials confirmed this weekend that it had died prompting comparisons with the difficult relationship the two leaders have had since the visit.

Macron has disagreed with Trump over his unilateralist approach to trade, climate change and a nuclear deal with Iran.
