Trump, Macron downplay differences over Iran

Trump, Macron downplay differences over Iran President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday sought to downplay any split over how to keep Tehran from getting nuclear weapons, despite a rift between the two leaders over the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. "I don't think we have differences over Iran," Trump told reporters ahead of a bilateral meeting with Macron in Caen, France.

“It turns out that this oak was put in quarantine for American sanitary reasons and the poor thing did not survive,” Macron continued. “I’ll send another oak because I think the U.S. Marines and the friendship for freedom between our peoples is well worth it.”

Macron had gifted the tree, a sessile oak from the Belleau Wood, to Trump last year to symbolize 100 years of French-American friendship. The two leaders took part in a ceremony in Washington where they took turns shoveling dirt on top of it, though the tree was soon removed and placed into quarantine like any other agricultural import. Officials confirmed last weekend that the tree died in quarantine.
