France's Macron will send new oak to Trump after tree died

French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel

"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. "The symbol was us planting it together", Macron said.

The two men planted the oak sapling in the White House grounds a year ago. Shortly after being planted, it had to be ripped out root and stem and placed in quarantine where it later died.

"We will send him another, it is not a tragedy", Macron told Switzerland's RTS network on the sidelines of an International Labour Organisation meeting in Geneva.

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

The European Sessile Oak was a gift from the Macrons and comes from Belleau Woods, where more than 9000 American marines died during battle in June 1918 during the First World War.

It is unclear if the campaign will delay further deliveries, as the fix is not expected to become available until August. However, not many customers will be affected by it as only 540 of the 1,644 units sold have been delivered to customers.

It was put in quarantine because of fears parasites on the tree could spread to others on the White House property. "We have disagreements but we continue working together", TASS cited the French leader as saying.

At the time, Gerard Araud, French ambassador to the U.S., said the tree would be replanted following its time in quarantine.

US officials this weekend said it had died prompting a flurry of social media posts comparing its death to the hard relationship the two leaders have had since that visit.

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.

The two leaders have recently disagreed on approaches to trade and a nuclear deal with Iran.
