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

French President Emmanuel Macron during a joint presser with Vladimir Putin

French President Emmanuel Macron downplayed the death of an oak tree he had offered U.S. President Donald Trump a year ago on Tuesday, saying people shouldn't read symbols into everything and that he would send the American leader a new tree.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday that Europe should maintain a dialogue with Russia and restore the dynamics of relations, in particular, he personally intends to hold comprehensive talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the coming weeks, Trend reports citing Sputnik. "Do not see symbols where there are none, the symbol was to plant it together".

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

As Macron wrote on Twitter at the time, the tree "will be a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us".

"Over 9,000 American marines died in the Belleau Wood battle in June 1918 and the forest is a memorial site and important symbol of the sacrifice the United States made to ensure peace and stability in Europe", the White House said in a statement in 2018.

"And I think it is our generation's responsibility not to wait for a new war but to look at the world as it is", Macron said.

The tree had a brief life. Shortly after being planted, it had to be ripped out root and stem and placed in quarantine where it later died. "Of course I would, because firstly I think we need someone strong".

However, some European politicians have expressed reservations about Mr Weber, the notionally conservative candidate, including Mr Macron, with Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez pushing for a more left-wing candidate in the role to implement a progressive agenda in the EU, including greater integration of EU institutions.
