    An Oak tree planted by US President Donald Trump and France’s Emmanuel Macron,week ago, is no where to be found .

    At the beginning of Macron’s visit to Washington, the French president joined his American counterpart to throw handfuls of soil on the roots of a young oak tree as the their respective first ladies looked on.

    According to AFP,It was a symbolic gesture: the tree came from a northern French forest where 2,000 US Marines died during the First World War.

    But a few days later, the plant was nowhere to be seen.

    Amid fervent speculation, France on Sunday came through with an explanation: the tree, now not just a plant but a symbol of US-French relations, had been placed in quarantine.

    “It is a quarantine which is mandatory for any living organism imported into the US,” Gerard Araud, French ambassador to America, wrote on Twitter.”It will be replanted afterwards.”

    When a follower fired back that the caution seemed a bit late — given that the tree had already been planted — the diplomat went on to confirm that the roots had been enclosed in plastic.
