Trump and Macron’s “friendship tree” has died
A tree that President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron planted together as a symbol of friendship has died at a time when the relationship between the two leaders is withering, reported the Guardian.

The story: The oak tree sapling was a gift from Macron to Trump which he delivered during his state visit to the U.S. last year and came from the site of a World War I battle in France. At the time, Macron described the gesture as “a reminder … of these ties that bind us” and the “tenacity of the friendship” between France and the U.S. After they Trump and Macron planted the tree, along with first ladies Brigitte Macron and Melania Trump, it was quarantined as a safety measure.

Tensions between the two leaders arose due to their disagreements and different viewpoints on various issues, including climate change, trade, and nationalism. French daily newspaper Le Monde wrote that the death of the tree was “metaphor for a relationship that isn’t what it was."

Extraordinary what ridiculous things politicians will do for photo ops ... always symbolic - never substance

And no shortage of sheep milling around the outside of the barriers meant to keep the peasants at a distance

and to think, except for this, probably neither man has ever used a shovel for anything else other than a photo op

the elite, and shovels, gold plated shovels at that
pffttttt

They shoulda used some top soil with a good mix of potting soil for water retention
now that i think of it -
they shoulda let the mexican gardner plant it...

Trees are dying from too many globalist tears salting the earth in France.

Obviously, the tree was not properly fertilized.

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to William S. Smith, a diplomatic official in London, on November 13, 1787
