Tree symbolising Trump-Macron friendship has died

Now, just as symbolically with relations strained between the two, the oak tree has reportedly died, according to The Guardian, a British daily newspaper.

The European Sessile Oak originated from the site in France where more than 9,000 U.S. Marines died in battle during World War I. It was planted on the South Lawn of the White House on April 23, 2018 during Macron's state visit, but mysteriously disappeared five days later.

The demise of an commerative oak tree planted by French leader Emmanual Macron and President Trump on White House grounds has been ruled a suicide by an arborist investigating the incident.

At the time of the tree's planting, president Macron tweeted: "100 years ago, American soldiers fought in France, in Belleau to defend our freedom".

The oak originally sprouted at the site of the World War I Battle of Belleau Wood in northern France, where about 2,000 USA troops died fighting the Germans in 1918.

The tree had been meant to symbolize the friendship between the two nations and was dug into the lawn by the two leaders during a state visit by Macron in April 2018.

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

The two men were filmed planting it by reporters, as Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron watched on.

"It might be an isolate that is compulsory for any living life form outside into the US", Gerard Araud, at that point the French envoy to America, composed on Twitter, including that it may be replanted later.
