Report: Trump/Macron ‘Friendship’ Tree Dies

The symbolic tree did not survive long after the world leaders planted it in the White House garden.

AFP reported Monday that a sapling planted by President Donald J. Trump and French president Emmanuel Macron – meant to symbolize the friendship of the two nations – has died.

“The French president offered the young oak to Trump on the occasion of a state visit to Washington in 2018, and the two shoveled dirt around it under the watchful eyes of their wives — and cameras from around the world,” the report said.

The tree was planted during Macron’s diplomatic visit to Washington, D.C. in April 2018. It reportedly “came from a northern French forest where 2,000 US Marines died during the First World War.”

Shortly thereafter, it was removed and put into quarantine.

“It is in quarantine which is mandatory for any living organism imported to the US. It will be replanted afterwards,” Gérard Araud said in response to an ABC story about the tree’s disappearance at the time.

According to AFP, though, the tree died in quarantine and was never re-planted.

Right now, Macron has larger concerns on his hands. After months of “Yellow Vest” protests against the globalist leader, he has finally responded in an attempt to placate French citizens who are worried about mass migration.

Big League Politics reported:

The Yellow Vest resistance throughout France is apparently having a serious effect on French President Emmanuel Macron, as he has shifted his rhetoric drastically to call out the threat of “political Islam.”

“Political Islam wants to secede from our republic,” Macron said during an address on Apr. 5. He claims he wants French government to be “intractable” against this emerging threat to French national sovereignty.

“We are talking about people who, in the name of a religion, pursue a political project,” Macron added.

Macron claims that he is committed to a secular France and believes the term has been hijacked by Islamists attempting to completely transform the culture.

Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick

She’s reportedly the frontrunner.

Published

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
