White House tree: Emmanuel Macron's sapling disappears



A tree gifted to President Donald Trump by French President Emmanuel Macron has disappeared.

The pair planted the sapling, taken from the site of a World War One battle in north-east France, during Mr Macron's state visit last week.

Mr Macron said the tree would be a reminder of "these ties that bind us".

But a Reuters photographer on Saturday took a shot of only a yellow patch of grass on the White House south lawn where the tree once stood.

18. I say it was the photo op with John Lewis

He saw it everywhere and got really pissed. Decided to have Miller break the sapling (since Rump is incapable of doing anything himself). Look for that to leak out soon, "But, but, but, it was Miller who did it, not me!"

5. And almost 240 years ago

The French fought side by side with us while their fleet kept the British bottled up in Yorktown.

How we have fallen.
