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.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment

The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.

Published

President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.

“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.

The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.

“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”

The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.

“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.

With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
