A tree planted last year by President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron to symbolize a century of French and American friendship has died.

In April 2018, the two leaders shoveled dirt on the sapling during a ceremony on the White House South Lawn as their wives looked on.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This oak tree … will be a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us,” Macron tweeted at the time.

The article notes that shortly after the tree was planted on the White House lawn, it suddenly vanished.  Gerard Araud, then-French ambassador to the U.S., explained, tweeting, “It is in quarantine which is mandatory for any living organism imported to the US. It will be replanted afterwards.”

Unfortunately, it has now died in quarantine.
